The Census, ICE, DOH, FLSA, and CBP walked into a bar…
What do wages, welfare, immigration, importation, and the counting of people have in common?
The “Census” should not just be an every 10-year effort, but one that is continually being done to keep track of all people in America and all people who have left and may return—whether they are here permanently or not.
With the Census Bureau being instructed to perpetually keep track of every person’s contact information, the Bureau can also work for the people of the United States by being a one-stop shop for updating contact info for all other public and private organizations.
Trying to gain personally identifiable information or releasing the same from the Census Bureau should not just be criminal, but treasonous.
