WASHINGTON Census workers know it will be difficult counting illegal immigrants for the 2010 population tally and even tougher if those immigrants are hiding from enforcement agents.

"If you have federal officials going door to door trying to count people, and federal officials going door to door trying to deport people, it doesn't work," said Arturo Vargas, executive director of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.

To make it easier, the Census Bureau wants immigration agents to suspend enforcement raids during the population count, the Census Bureau's second-ranking official said in an Associated Press interview.

Yep, illegal aliens count in our census and sense they are counted in congressional districts they count towards the realignment of congressional districts as well.

Personally, I think ICE and the Census Bureau should go door to door together. Clear the illegals out and do the census at the same time.

Agreed

Asking if they're here legally should be the last question. I they start running......there's your answer.

Agreed. This is more than a head count. It is an illegal way of counting people who do not belong here, do not matter and have no right to be counted as citizens of this country. It is also an illegal way of obtaining more political representation than hispanics are entitled to. The sheer arrogance and deliberate catering to latino special ethnocentric groups' corruption is nauseating.

It's rather simple, start advertising that the census and homeland security WILL go door to door and before 2010 the number of illegals will start to decrease naturally.

They've already started leaving for other reasons.
