Here is the clearest indication of how bad things are. It takes the Supreme Court to say it’s alright for the U. S. Census to not count fraudulent census data. The census is constitutionally necessary function of the federal government, needed to measure the representation a state get in the House of Representatives and the regional Federal Courts are fighting the Trump Administration over getting an accurate count. The other advantage of this is it allows ICE to pick up anyone falsely claiming to be citizens. Falsifying census info is a federal felony. And it will probably put a damper on illegal aliens answering census information. That will hurt sanctuary states like California when it comes to federal funds. And that is good for the rest of us.
