Something wrong? Eric Holder flips after Trump admin puts citizenship question back on Census form

Also, this concern from the guy who worked for the king of gerrymandering is comical.

The “Resistance” triggering over this one is going to be epic:

In a controversial move, the Commerce Department announced Monday that the question of citizenship will again be included in the 2020 Census.

The move comes at the request of the Justice Department, first made in the early days of the administration, saying it was needed to better enforce the Voting Rights Act.

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign endorsed the idea in an email to supporters last week.

“The President wants the 2020 United States Census to ask people whether or not they are citizens. In another era, this would be COMMON SENSE… but 19 attorneys general said they will fight the President if he dares to ask people if they are citizens. The President wants to know if you’re on his side,” the email said.

Remember in 2008 when then-candidate Obama said he was just days away from being able to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” while people like Eric Holder applauded wildly? He’s no longer a “transformation” fan:

News flash, Eric: The Constitution doesn’t require the federal government to do lots of things that they do anyway.

Liberals are also reacting as if a citizenship question is an affront to American history or something, but, as with most other things, they’re wrong:

Between 1820 and 1950, almost every decennial census asked a question on citizenship in some form.

And considering who Holder worked for, his ginned-up concern about Republican gerrymandering is laughable:

There’s no progressive more panicky than a progressive who’s getting beaten at his own game.
