So Trump wants to know who are the citizens in the USA and who are not the citizens in the USA.
"We are not backing down on our effort to determine the citizenship status of the US population,"
Seems reasonable... right?
The Supreme Court (one of our three governmental checks and balances
) didn't agree.
So now Trump is going to use an "Executive Order" telling the Department of Commerce to obtain the answer(s) from all the other Executive Agencies.
That also seems reasonable... right?
Really? Guess which two Federal agencies have YOUR
>>> The Social Security Administration and the Internal Revenue Service. <<<
Generally speaking both of these agencies have very strict rules on when and if they can share YOUR
information with Federal Law Enforcement... privacy rights
... but not now.
Typically it is conservatives & republicans (especially the "far right"... and the Tea Party) as well as Libertarians who don't want a "strong" Federal Government to have this sort of personal and private information. But now they are lining up behind Trump to hand over their privacy, all of our privacy.
Imagine for a moment, once the Fed already has YOUR
information, when the next Obama
is elected and wants to take away your guns... they will have everything on you and only need to match it with gun ownership (An astonishingly easy thing for the Fed to do, whether you want to believe it or not).
You 21st Century conservatives are killing me... with laughter...
Go ahead... give up your privacy!
