More Census: While Dems Block Citizenship Question, the Mexican Government Urges Mexicans To Participate

I recounted earlier this morning that Democrats are trying to block a requirement that the census inquire whether respondents are American citizens. At the same time, the Mexican government is interfering in our census by urging Mexican nationals to get themselves counted so they can grab bigger slices of hundreds of billions in social-welfare spending — i.e., the redistribution of wealth from taxpaying American citizens to Mexican immigrants — legal and illegal.

Check out this story in the Spanish language Mexican paper, El Financiero. It reports that the Mexican consulates in Los Angeles and Miami are advising Mexicans in the U.S. that the census will be critical to assigning $300 billion annually in federal, state, and local social programs over the next ten years — specifically, in determining the level of funds to be applied toward the population of Mexican origin.
