Wow. Trump just announced an EXECUTIVE ORDER on including the citizenship status in the 2020 census questionnaire, AG Barr was there to CONGRATULATE Trump for doing this and...

Nobody is talking about it.

I miss something bigger going on right now?

This is actually an ACCURATE and ENTIRELY TRUTHFUL statement from AG Barr: there wasn't TIME to re-litigate this in the courts if the citizenship question was directly put on the census form.

THIS way, using gov't records, they can use the info before the 2020 election.
HERE, I'll even take the EXTRA SPECIAL STEP of ***HIGHLIGHTING*** the exact words you need to pay attention to, for those of you out panicking and screaming 'cave' & 'sell out!' right now because of your unfortunate ADHD syndrome:
The gov't records will be used - including those records from the federal WELFARE agencies that make the payouts. THOSE records will reflect how many illegals there are.

Lying or not turning in the census form = useless now.
Using the federal records will likely give a more ACCURATE # of the citizenship vs. illegal population, since people can get around a citizenship question on the census form by

1. Lying. "Sure I'm a US citizen!"
2. Simply not returning it.
Nobody knows how anything works.

Let's see a show of hands: who thinks all the redistricting stuff would be settled by the 2020 election after that awesome census computation is done?

The redistricting stuff affected by the census wouldn't take effect until 2022 at earliest.
If you're thinking they'll RUSH OUT stuff once the 2020 census is all turned in and then CHANGE THE DISTRICT LINES before that 2020 election, you're confused.

NOTHING happens that fast.
Trump is positioning things for 2022 and 2024. NOTHING in a 2020 census would've been ready to affect any district lines or # of reps at the state or federal level by Nov. 2020.
