With the exception of the East Asians who came here first, everyone else are immigrants...cmon you should know this.

Illegals do fall under "anyone who is not a citizen" don't they ?
Wow. Haven't seen anybody backpedal that fast in a long time.

If you are referring to the Amerindians they were immigrants also. No one born here is an immigrant for God's sake! Come on YOU should know this!

Only the liberal left and ethnocentrics refer to illegal aliens as the "undocumented" or "non-citizens". They are made up PC terms. Legal immigrants are non-citizens.

How's that for a slap in the face to American citizens who could have used that pay.

https://www.usnews.com/news/national...-ahead-of-2020

THE CENSUS BUREAU IS pursuing a legal loophole that its officials believe would allow them to temporarily hire non-U.S. citizens as part of its efforts to reach populations that are difficult to count, including in non-English speaking and immigrant communities.
Since anyone working for the federal government needs to show proper immigration status, then I'd say illegals who don't have proper working credentials will be ineligible to work for the census.

I really don't think this will help. Those illegals still will not complete a census even if they cant use the language barrier as an excuse.
