They're afraid illegal aliens will not fill out the census form because of the citizenship question. That, they say, could result in less funding because it would undercount people, both citizens and legal and illegal immigrants, in the area. But the funding would be sufficient for the population who are not afraid to respond (citizens and legal immigrants). So, the very obvious answer is, stop being a sanctuary city for illegals. Otherwise they will use up resources that should be going to those legally here and in need.

What's up with the stupid name of that coffee shop. What does Thou Mayest mean anyway? It sounds like some religious cult like those creepy IHOP people.

Boo-freaking-hoo on the Census. If they simply counted heads at addresses, then fine. But they don't. They ask for information that is nunya.

And 20 years ago, having filled it out, I had a census worker show up on my door step wanting more in-depth information. I kept dodging his knocks and business cards left in the door. It went on for a month. He finally "caught" me at home. Bullies.
