The Democratic Party has gone so far off the deep end they are now trying to argue Americans do not have the right to know who is a legal and illegal citizen in their own country.
That’s essentially the argument the Democratic-controlled House Oversight Committee made this week when they filed a lawsuit against Attorney General William Barr and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.
Democrats are suing the officials for blocking its investigation into the administration’s decision to forgo adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
New York Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney said she filed the lawsuit because the two departments have not handed over documents related to the squashing of the question.
“Since the Supreme Court ruled against them — and the House of Representatives held them in contempt for blocking the Committee’s investigation — Attorney General Barr and Commerce Secretary Ross have doubled down on their open defiance of the rule of law and refused to produce even a single additional document in response to our Committee’s bipartisan subpoenas,” said Maloney.
“I am filing this enforcement action today because the Trump Administration’s brazen obstruction of Congress must not stand,” she added. “President Trump and his aides are not above the law.”
Trump abandoned the citizenship question last summer after the Supreme Court said the administration’s justification for the question “seems to have been contrived.”
The president signed an executive order that directed agencies to provide all the citizenship data allowed by law to the Commerce Department.
