Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that a question on citizenship status will be reinstated on the 2020 decennial census questionnaire to help enforce the Voting Rights Act.
Almost immediately, Eric Holder, the only U.S. Attorney General in history to be held in contempt of Congress, and the usual crew of blue state Attorneys General announced that they would sue the Trump Administration.
With a very important race underway for Ohio Attorney General, voters deserve to know where Democrat candidate Steve Dettelbach stands.
Would Steve Dettelbach sue the Trump Administration for reinstating the citizenship question on the census questionnaire?
Attacks over reinstating the citizenship question on the census questionnaire are just the latest examples of Democrat opportunism. Reinstating a citizenship question on the census will provide more complete and accurate citizen voting age population data which is needed to enforce voting rights.
Fears that citizenship data collected by the census could be used for any purpose other than statistical analysis are unfounded. All census responses are protected by law and may not be used for any other purpose. Any person improperly using the information is subject to fines and up to five years in prison.
So, does Steve Dettelbach agree with Eric Holder? Would he join Democrat Attorneys General in their politically motivated lawsuits against the Trump Administration?
