The census is suppose to determine population among other things. Why wouldn't we want to know if the person filling out the form is a citizen or not? Illegals have been voting in our election and shouldn't be. Knowing who they are could help put a stop to that. My personal opinion is the government doesn't really want to stop illegal immigrants from voting or close the southern border or anything else that makes this country what it is. I believe the government just wants to stir the pot constantly and keep the turmoil going. All while tearing this country apart little by little.
