Trump administration says giving confidential Census information to ICE is open to 'debate'

Source: Think Progress

Fears over President Donald Trump’s push to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census appeared to be realized in an email from his administration that surfaced on Friday.

Information from the Census — which counts every person in America, including undocumented immigrants — containing “personally identifiable information about an individual” can’t be released for 72 years.

However, NPR’s Hansi Lo Wang reported on Saturday that Trump’s administration thinks this federal law could be subject to “debate.”

According to an internal Department of Justice (DOJ) email that was included in a court filing from one of the many lawsuits over the citizenship question, DOJ officials said providing confidential citizenship information to law enforcement could “come up later for renewed debate.”

1. Coming from the guy who

In the Oval office gave top classified secrets openly to the Russian diplomats about an agent who infiltrated ISIS, so they could target him , and remove him. This means nothing to him to do this now.

2. Trump: "Constitution? I don't need your stupid Constitution!"

Every time I think Donnie Two Scoops can't get any worse, he does. I knew there had to be some nefarious purpose to putting the citizenship question on the Census (apart from the obvious ones). Doing it with the intention of rounding up all of the undocumented immigrants and ejecting them exceeds my worst nightmares. Is there anything a Democratic House can do to rein him in completely?

5. They are really good at cutting their own legs off

Tweets, e-mails, interviews...they give the game away as if there is no recording of their true intentions for the courts to review.

7. I seem to recall the same repuglinazis getting all worked up against the census last time around.

It was a big 'totalitarian conspiracy' by 'one world gov' types to 'get' the poor reichwingers.

They'll never make a forceful statement about their deeply held values that they don't contradict with a 180 degree flip flop, the second it is convenient for them to do so.

And we'll never hear them scream and whine any accusations, about their 'enemies' evil schemes', that aren't exactly what the repugs are planning to do themselves to those 'enemies'.
