The Citizens Only Census Act of 2018.
The main constitutional purpose of the Census, from the Constitution, Article 1, Section 2, is to establish the correct number of representatives to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, based on the population of each state. The Census therefore is primarily concerned with representation. Representation is only established for those who can vote for that representation in Congress. Since only U.S. citizens can vote, only U.S. citizens shall be counted in the U.S. Census. The purpose of this bill is to insure that only U.S. Citizens are counted in the Census, that the Federal Government verifies that only U.S. Citizens are counted in the Census, that all people are asked whether they are in fact U.S. citizens or they shall not be counted, that all persons answering in the affirmative that they are U.S. citizens offer proof of their U.S. citizenship, and, that the Congress in passing this legislation, establish a legal requirement that the Federal Government enforce that U.S. citizenship is proven, through written means such as the U.S. Passport, Naturalization Papers, or Birth Certificate, and prosecute through deportation, civil asset forfeiture, and other legal means, anyone falsely claiming U.S. citizenship for the purposes of being fraudulently counted in the Census, or for any other purpose resulting in personal benefit from any government agency or program.
The only exception to counting U.S. citizens is the counting for statistical purposes only, the number and location of registered aliens with permanent resident status, and the counting of temporary Visa holders for the purpose of ensuring they do not overstay their Visa, in which case they shall be prosecuted as illegal aliens fraudulently claiming U.S. citizenship. This group shall constitute a separate pool of persons and shall not be counted in any way with U.S. citizens for any purpose.
Section 1. Constitutional Authority of Congress:
The authority for determining the methodology of the Census comes from the Constitution. Article 1, Section 2 contains the following language regarding the authority of Congress: “in such manner as they shall by law direct,” where “they” is Congress.
Since this power to Congress is expressly authorized and directed by the Constitution where Congress can conduct the Census “in such manner as they shall by law direct,” what law Congress passes to direct the Census shall not be subject to challenge by any federal judge, federal court, up to and including the Supreme Court, through any change through interpretation, or mis-interpretation, of the clear language of the Constitution, which delegates the power to Congress exclusively to operate the Census, including state attorney challenges to the Census specifically asking, and with this bill proving, that for purposes of representation only U.S. citizens shall be counted. Such nebulous legal theories as “bad faith” or the contention that the Constitution requires that all persons regardless of nationality, or criminal status living illegally on U.S. soil be counted, where no such requirement exists in the Constitution, shall have no standing or merit. This Act overrides any previous federal court or judicial ruling to the contrary.
Section 2. Asking only what is necessary:
Congress has lost their way and the Census has become ridiculously intrusive. The only information the federal government needs to know is the names, ages, and number of U.S. citizens, living at each particular residence. Nothing further shall be authorized or allowed to be asked or investigated under this Act.
The eternal asking of questions, and the endless collection, cataloging and analysis, of the subsequent information gained by agents and officers of the federal government, constitute an unreasonable search under this statute, and violate the Fourth Amendment right of the people to be safe and secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects. Such an intrusion under the guise of the Census to learn anything beyond the aforementioned names, ages, and number of U.S. citizens, shall be deemed an unreasonable intrusion, regardless of altruistic arguments of the benefits of statistical information.
The Census shall not have the power to issue individual, statewide, nor national warrants for the purpose of obtaining any information beyond what is authorized above in this Section.
The Census shall not have the power to violate Fifth Amendment rights and compel any U.S. citizen to be a witness against themselves, by answering any questions beyond what is authorized above in this Section.
Section 3. Proof of Citizenship for purposes of the Census:
Proof of U.S. citizenship can be accomplished by U.S. Passport, U.S. Birth Certificate, or U.S. Naturalization Certificate. Driver’s licenses, Social Security Cards, and all other forms of identification shall not be considered valid proof of U.S. citizenship owing to the massive fraud of false identification, and the illegal granting by many states of driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, and subsequently allowing them to vote, especially without proper voter security I.D. laws. The exception would be when states or the Congress adopts the U.S. Citizenship Declaration Act which declares upon the driver’s license by printing in bold letters the status of the driver as being U.S. citizen, registered alien permanent resident, or temporary visa holder, where the license expires the day the visa expires.
All declarations of U.S. citizenship shall be supported by oath or affirmation by certifying in writing or electronic signature that, ” l declare under penalty of perjury (under the laws of the United States of America) that the foregoing is true and correct.”
The Federal Government shall use ALL available federal databases to confirm the accurate status of everyone who claims U.S. citizenship.
Once citizenship has been proven and the Census taken, a database of registered U.S. citizens can be authorized by this Act, and divided up by state, county, and city or smaller division, for purposes of verifying citizenship by state and local registrars of voters to compare their registration lists against the U.S. citizenship data base of the U.S. Census Bureau, for voter I.D. to insure only U.S. Citizens are registering to vote, registered to vote in one place only, and voting only once in any election.
Upon completion of the Census, an investigation shall be done comparing the results of the Census against all national, state, city, and smaller divisions numbers of persons listed, whether those persons are on voter registration rolls, whether there are separate classifications for U.S. citizens, and then for statistical purposes, and nothing else, the numbers of registered alien permanent residents, and current visa holders. All other such persons shall be presumed to be in the United States illegally, and shall be investigated and prosecuted according to U.S. immigration law. Disparities in numbers between the Census and the state and local government numbers shall be investigated and the conclusions reported to Congress in less than one year from the date the Census is completed.
Citizenship is not a private status, nor private information. Citizenship for any person must be declared to border officials anytime anyone enters or leaves the United States. Therefore citizenship, and the verification of U.S. citizenship, is a public status that is not protected from being disclosed to, and by, any government entity. Congress may authorize the sharing of citizenship status of any individual on U.S. soil with any law enforcement agency from local to federal.
Section 4. Whether the Census should be turned over to the States:
The authority vested in the Congress to conduct the Census, “in such manner as they shall by law direct,” includes having the Federal Government not conduct the Census at all, but delegate through this Act, the authority to the States, which may then delegate the authority further to county, city, or other local governments to conduct the Census at the local level, and then report back up to the States, who will then report the results to the U.S. Census Bureau who will then compile the results.
All the requirements of this Act as prescribed for the U.S. Census Bureau to conduct the Census, shall apply exactly to any smaller government entity charged with any aspect of census counting activity. All evidence of proof of citizenship shall be retained by the local and state governments and shall be available to the U.S. Census Bureau, especially in developing a data base of verified U.S. citizens.
Section 5. Failure to disclose citizenship status:
There is no such thing as an “undocumented immigrant.” Everyone is documented from somewhere. Everyone has a birth certificate from somewhere. Everyone is subject to the jurisdiction of some nation, but only U.S. citizens are subject to United States jurisdiction. Any attempt to deceive, or failure to disclose citizenship when it is not United States citizenship, shall be grounds for reporting to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or I.C.E. and full prosecution of the law shall be initiated.
Section 6. Using the Census for a national poll:
Once U.S. citizenship has been verified and affirmed, certain national poll questions may be voluntarily answered or not. Questions to be determined by Congress and this Act. Some questions have already been established as necessary to ask.
- Shall English be the national language? If yes, should every language but English be removed from all government forms, procedures, applications and any other paperwork? Translators for foreign nationals shall not be affected by this Act.
- Should U.S. citizenship be verified by electronic fingerprint I.D.? Should electronic fingerprint technology be required at polling places for all federal elections?
Section 7. Does current government technology make the Census obsolete?
One of the questions to be answered by Congress before commencing the 2020 Census count is whether the Census is even necessary anymore? Or, because of current computer technology, programs such as Echelon, programs at the National Security Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, IRS records, the F.B.I., the National Security Branch Analysis Center, and other agencies, plus state and local agencies, is so much already known about all U.S. citizens that there is no need to count people for whom the government already has their life story. The Congressional Budget Office and the House and Senate Budget Committees should investigate whether the Census can’t more efficiently and accurately be done with known information on most U.S. citizens by the Federal Government, and then use Census collection techniques and personnel for people not known to the Federal Government already.
Section 8. Ending “Identity Politics” by removing all references to race from all government operations:
In a June 29, 2018 article by the Heritage Foundation, titled: “Eliminating Identity Politics from the U.S. Census,” they wrote:
Given the re-segregation that took place up to, but especially including the Obama Administration, where every policy and action was based on race, we can only continue to become a completely segregated nation again, unless a course reversal is instituted immediately. Therefore, it shall be the policy of not only the U.S. Census Bureau, but the entire federal government, that all mention, use, collection, categorization, for any purpose at all, of any listing of race, be abolished, destroyed, deleted, removed, erased, and all such use, practice, research, analysis, statistical collection or calculation, or any application of any kind, of race or racial information, cease immediately and permanently upon the passage of this Act.
