In US news and current events today, the 2020 United States census is currently being collected. The census occurs every ten years. Why is the census important? Hear what Stacey Abrams has to say about the matter.
Stacey Abrams served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2006 to 2017 and served as minority leader from 2011 to 2017. Now she wants to make sure every American participates in the 2020 census. Stacey Abrams explains the two main reasons to partake: reason one is that the census allocates $1.5 trillion dollars to our communities, and reason number two, is that it also allocates political power once every ten years.

Then do something about it and vote and fill out your census. Don't complain when you end up with the government and legislation slanted against you if you do nothing about it. the census takes less time than what some people spend on social media per day.

Giving short sighted uneducated morons both on the right and the left political power is an existential crisis to the US. Thr right is scared of loosing out to the rest while the minorities have no historic precedant or incentive in making the country stick to its historically positive ideals. So the minorties aside from a few are interested in turning the US into a nanny state. For the time being the US has no choice, it has already screwed itself by giving power to latin americans and promting immigrants form latin america.

Illegals shouldn't be counted for census purposes. That rewards Aiding and Abetting Cities / States with more power, representation and federal funds than they should have. Also, we should ensure that People Of White Color get adequately counted as well.

@Khadijah Muhammad Nothing wrong with using the term people of white color. People of color is used all the time! People in rural areas have had problems getting counted in the past because they are isolated. As to counting everyone cities and states that harbor illegal aliens shouldn't get a benefit for doing that.

People of white color? You mean white people? There's never been an issue with counting white people. Also, it's important that we have an official record of everyone in the country so that resources can be allocated properly. If everyone in an area is using the resources but not everyone gets counted in the census, the money needed to fund and maintain these resources(education,healthcare and others) won't be there.

We need to reform the census to be every year. We also need to put in a ton of other reforms which make it easier for people to participate and possibly even mandate that people have to participate to ensure everyone is counted.

thnksno Why don’t you want to be counted in a blue state, you’ll just have less of a voice when it comes to voting. This is part of why the electoral college suppresses both parties so heavily. Republicans don’t count in places like California and New York just as much as Democrats don’t count in Texas and Georgia.

@Karen Byrd hopefully the more accurate demographic data from the Census Bureau is used to determine states' Electoral College votes and congressional seats... It would be _CRIMINAL_ to operate under the assumption that everyone answering the incomplete census needs to be given a share of political power.

Non-citizens should be counted as such on the census, so that areas with many ineligible voters get the appropriate amount of political power. For example, places like California should not have an inflated number in the electoral college or congress.

Thanks to Trump many people from different races & nationalities will refuse to answer the Census form because they are scared and it's not just the Hispanic/Latino community. It's people from other countries living in America with expired visas (European, Asian, African, Middle Eastern & etc.)... Trump is blinded by his racism and hate & can't be trusted!

@thnksno ...The Census forms are NOT filled in correctly, many Hispanic/Latinos check "white" as their race thus making the "white" race numbers increase which gives the white people more representation in Congress & higher allocated funds towards their communities leaving less for the Hispanic/Latino population (we are limited in chosing between the white or black race) which in itself is unfair!...The only other option is selecting "other" and writing Mestizo (mixed- since we are a mixed race), but it's easier to check that white box...

@G-Naran They cant vote, But their progeny born in the US can. This is a generational threat. If america's culture is oversaturated by economic migrants, mexico needs only wait for 3 or 4 generations to reclaim its lost territory and balkanize the US to neutralize it. The only thing I appreciate about the liberals is their value of adhering to expert opinion and facts but they often miss the full picture due to ideological stupidity and moronic naiviety. Not saying anybody planned an agenda of demographic displacement. But dont think the Mexican ruling elite will miss this obvious effect. Californian oil fields and the Permian basin in Texas are prime candidates for annexation for an oil deficient country like mexico

G-Naran this incentivizes states to allow illegals in. Hence, sanctuary policy. Hence, calling it racist to ask if you’re a citizen on the census.

G-Naran Higher numbers on the census = more ELECTORAL votes = more seats in the house. If illegals answer the census, that will skew the population numbers which will allocate house seats to states with more illegals. As I said, you are not aware of how this works.

This census asks NOTHING. How they will get any information to be able to see how federal funds will be distributed is beyond me. They ask how many people living in the residence and their relationship to the person answering the census and that's pretty much it. I have taken a lot of censuses and they have been much more detailed regarding the type of housing, income level and other questions. I don't get the point of this one at all. It takes about three minutes on line. They ask ethnicity at the beginning and that's it.

Yep. The census has no effect on your financial well being. If you are poor before the census, you will be poor after and every day for the rest of your life unless "you" change something. Im tired of all these people waiting on the government to improve their lives. If things were up to me, id raise taxes on everyone and decrease benefits on everyone to get a balanced federal budget. Even if that means cutting k-college sports.
