Donald Trump drops fight to get citizenship question on 2020 census; other federal records to be used


So he's going to comb through all your data. forget social media-this is 1984.

And he admits one reason he is doing this is to lower response to higher immigrant areas. That means if you are getting pulled out of a house that's drowning or on fire, there isn't any guarantee you are not a non-citizen leaving the citizen to drown or burn up; there will be fewer resources for that.

Another thing he says is it's to help determine eligible voters.
Well, most forms say you are not even obligated to answer the citizenship questions. A lot of them have a 'prefer not to answer' box. So this way of collecting data is going to be no more accurate than the citizenship census question.
I can see him stirring up his base with false statistics to claim the election is rigged.
