Letter to the editor: Opposition to gerrymandering, census question ploys for votes
It confuses me how anyone could be opposed to gerrymandering and the citizenship question on the census. Aren’t they both political ploys to affect voting outcome? One is by redistricting, and one is by counting people who aren’t citizens and should have no right to vote.
The citizenship question is more heinous because it encourages illegal immigration. We have laws for the legal process of entering our country, but most of those who do so through our southern border once they enter Mexico are under no duress. I believe that by claiming asylum, they are obviously lying.
This is also a way for sanctuary cities to get more funding for circumventing our laws by counting people who shouldn’t even be here. If everyone should count, why don’t we just send census forms to South America, the EU, Russia, China and many other countries who have people that immigrate here?
This makes collusion look like child’s play.
