So Trump is going find out the census citizenship question from old records?

That doesn't make any sense to me, because they might not have answer that question then? I am missing the point of this or is he got something up his sleeve?

He'll get it soon enough.

3. They can figure this out without the census based on records.

Putting citizenship on the census was entirely for GOP political reasons.

6. The Census Bureau already asks citizenship questions on two of their yearly surveys

These surveys go to thousands of residents around the country and are very comprehensive. He is going to use those answers to get national and state numbers.

7. Apparently a citizenship question was on the 1950 census.

Don't know if they ever had it before, but have not since.

9. I think it may have been on it from..

1900 to 1950. Iíve learned a lot about my husbandís Eastern European ancestors from that question. If memory serves me right, it asked citizenship, immigration status and date if naturalized, date of arrival and country of origin.
