Kris Kobach’s #Crosscheck voter purge program is inherently racist. Under the guise of catching so-called double voters, it crudely matches the first and last names of voters across states. kboo.fm/media/72437-gr… #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
U.S. Census data shows that minorities are overrepresented in 85 of 100 of the most common last names. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…
And now #KrisKobach is trying to add a citizenship question to the US #Census2020 that could result in even more legal minority voters being illegally purged from the rolls and/or deterred from voting. gregpalast.com/kris-kobachs-b… #InterstateCrosscheck #Census #VoterSuppression

Hey, guess what happens tomorrow? Supreme Court hearing on whether 2020 federal census form can include a question asking whether each member of a household is a US citizen.

Department of Commerce, et al., Petitioners v. New York, et al.

supremecourt.gov
U.S. Code: Title 13. CENSUS

law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/13
Department of Commerce v. New York

How this is even an issue is beyond me. Clearly the only people against asking if every US person is a US citizen are those aiding & abetting for ILLEGAL aliens aka criminals..

Only in U.S. is it controversial to have a citizenship question on the #census—one we’ve had consistently since 1820 (and census still asks it today on the annual American Community Survey): dailysign.al/2Dmw2kU
Even the UN—the left’s favorite model institution—recommends a citizenship question in its manual on how to conduct a census.

Countries like Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico all ask. Are they problematic? bit.ly/2K2kpVm
On 4/23 #SCOTUS is hearing arguments on the citizenship question for #2020Census—common sense and the Constitution say the question should be allowed. dailysign.al/2Dmw2kU

Barbara Underwood will get to argue #Census2020 before #SCOTUS after all. Can’t wait.
This case is so important, and would get so much more attention in normal times. Demanding citizenship status on the #Census would lead to major undercounts in immigrant-rich states like NY, jeopardizing billions in federal $ & fair representation in Congress & Electoral College.
Also, a reminder for the xenophobes: the U.S. Constitution (yes, that one) requires an “actual Enumeration” of all people living in the United States, whether they are citizens or not.

Since many people question the contribution of RSS /Hindutva ideology towards India's freedom struggle...

I am writing this #RightFactsThread

Let's start:

1. Contribution of Congress Vs that of Hindutva in

#IndianFreedomMovement

1/n
Congress origin was to maintain status-Quo of British policies, also to act as a safety valve..to prevent a repeat of 1857

Hindutva came up as Tilak, Aurobindo, thought "Hindu mythology" vl help mobilisation of people & achievements of Vedic civilization vl instill pride

2/n
While Britishers were claiming their aim was 'civilising mission"

Congress (Nehruvians) adopted the #SuitBoot Culture surrendering to prayers& petition politics

While Hindutva says we knew Democracy, Republican ideas from times of Lichchhavis, Yaudheyas, Vaishali..

#BREAKING #2020Census news:

A federal judge just granted @NewYorkStateAG Underwood's motion to depose Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. This is part of the AG's lawsuit over the Trump administration's decision to demand citizenship info on the #Census.
In granting @NewYorkStateAG Underwood’s motion to depose Ross, the federal judge writes, “the question is not a close one: Secretary Ross must sit for a deposition because, among other things, his intent and credibility are directly at issue in these cases.” #2020census
Here’s a link to the full decision granting @NewYorkStateAG Underwood’s motion to depose Wilbur Ross over the #2020Census: ag.ny.gov/sites/default/…

When I was comducting research on a preliminary thesis topic, I reviewed Georgia's #census records. Let me tell you what I found.

I found records of interracial marriages between Cherokee women and African men where the census taker changed the wife's ethnicity to Negro after the marriage.
#SoJustCensus
#SaturdaySchool
In changing the ethnicity of the Indigenous Woman, the census-taker effectively reduced her status from 2nd class citizen (within the new United States of course) to non-existent.

As soon as I heard #Trump was adding the question about whether you have a non-citizen in your household to the #census I smelled #KKKobach... #census2020 via @Thom_Hartmann
They’re basically turning the #census into a giant caging operation to get rid of real citizen voters by asking if you have a non-citizen in your household. #Census #census2020
They want to scare people off from voting and they want to scare people off from filling out the census... #census2020 #Census
