    It's hard to count certain people, as mentioned - homeless people living on the streets, illegal immigrants, fugitives, and people living off-grid.

    Census worker ask my friend, Did anyone commit a crime against you, did anyone try to commit s crime against you, did anyone threaten to commit a crime against you, She was supposedly a censuses worker? She asked her that question seven times? Which is weird for a census worker to ask?

    Do an Article about KVC privetized child welfare services. And it's sketchy business practices. Especially in the State of Kansas... They claim to operate on a "it's for the children" census-based Count largely on children under 5years old. That are either non-counted or go uncounted... But that's only a sliver of their problems. They create a catch 22, for families that have taken their children away, mostly, cause we're not rich, or influencial enough to handle our own. When my siblings were taken away from my biological father, and his wife at the time. By law they weren't *Required to notify anyone else besides the grandparents... Whom we're both growing older and sustaining more medical issues. My grandmother passed away earlier this year2019. The last time she saw her grand kids was when the youngest just came out of diapers. I believe, there is a huge lack and oversight missing from this entire system. Wtf. People. So I need to right your wrongs?

    "It's illegal to disclose identifying census information" Yeah, see, that's nice and all, but our government at the moment is also _incredibly lawless_ . Spanky has taught us that he is not above breaking the law, and none of his goons are, either, so I could totally see why nobody finds reassurance in knowing whether it's legal or not to share that information. We're also alive during a time when it seems like EVERYbody is getting caught doing illegal shit, and walking away from it scot-free, because apparently American laws don't apply to those who are rich.

    Everyone should put White as their race. That makes it impossible to jerry-rig counties and towns. I, as a mixed race person of color even put White" on my driver's licence.

    In Netherlands , Census is automated , as Wikipedia states : "The census that was planned for 1981 was postponed and later cancelled. A call for privacy was responsible for the cancellation of any further census since 1991. Censuses are being conducted by the Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek since 1899. The censuses today are mostly (population, fiscal) register based, combined with surveying." All information are in Personal Records Database ( ).

    The people that are obnoxious to census workers are the same ones that have an entire JPreporter channel devoted to vlogging their local police station and harassing people at their job for hours "because it's their right".

    I worked for the Census in 2010 and one house I visited, the guy kept me there for an hour just bitching that one, they only scared about the sp*cs in my town and that he didn't want his tax dollars going to paying for me to harass him. I remember leaving his porch and thinking "You gripe about how much this costs, and you made it cost just a little bit more." because that entire encounter was a billable hour.

    Funny how people think they are so important and that the government is after them. They only want to know who lives in the country, and if for some reason they needed your private info they already have it.

    I worked the 2010 Census in a site set up for that reason. A 73 yr old woman working in the field physically going door to door was killed by a pack of dogs. Another Census Worker was attacked by a man with an ax. A Census Worker was invited into a woman's home and had a gun pulled on him. Census work can be dangerous, there has always been a problem with illegal communities hiding and not wanting to be counted, but they want the social service benefits that participating in the Census count affords communities which produces a shortfall for all the needy, which is not fair in my opinion. But what trump and ross are doing is to out non-citizens, it is true none of the personal Census information on individuals can be reported to anyone for 72 are so funny John.

    @Stephen2462 you are missing the point of the Census they allocate funding for all states schools, social services, etc. If a city or state's citizens are miscounted that state loses funding for those services, so you have a family of illegals getting what services there are, they come first if of Latin or Hispanic descent. When I worked the Census it was 300 trillion dollars allocated to all states by citizen count over a ten year period. A correct count is important for every state getting a fair share to help there indigent and children population, helps pay school lunches, free breakfast, ebt, medical, and financial help for those in need. Don't lump me in with trump, but I do know about working for the Census and how important it is to have a correct count of all people in this country.

    Whether they participate in the census or not wouldn't effect their ability to receive benefits. I'm not sure if you're co predicting yourself, or admitting you think Trump will do blatantly unetheical things with it.

    @horizontal120 That's debatable. IMO, the media puts more attention on it because he's more obvious about it, and because the resulting drama sells papers. Trump's presidency as a whole got super old super fast.

    Knowing that the plan all along was to use the census information to suppress minority votes is all the more reason for people not to trust it,you said it yourself,the census information by law is confidential,but further down the show you said it yourself that they were planning on using that same information to fuck with people's lives.....c'mon now John,only his supporters are dumb enough to trust him,no person in their right mind trusts this administration,no person with their mental state balanced is going to put their confidence and their trust in this administration,as long as this corrupt orange piece of shit is in the white house minorities and immigrants will never forget that they have to be looking over their shoulders.

    John no offense but it was against the law to use NSA surveillance on Americans as well,it was against the law to let the people of Flint drink water poisoned with led,it's against the law for a corrupt officer to kill unarmed people with absolutely no reason....many things are against the law but that doesn't mean the government won't do it or support those who do it. So if you expect people to trust that the census information won't be seen or used by the government to deport people or jail them,I'm sorry but you're foolishly optimistic.
