Kamala Harris Tells Rachel Maddow: Trump’s Mass Deportation Threats on Twitter ‘Intentionally Is Trying to Create Fear’

‘What this president is contributing to is a faulty census that we will have to live with for the next 10 years’

RUSH EXCERPT:

HARRIS: “They are fearing they might be in the fear of deportation. Or investigating who is in that household for purposes about deportation and not counting people. The result will be and include that people will not be counted and who in particular? Immigrants. Specifically in terms of the largest population we know has been the target of this administration’s fear campaign? Latino immigrants. Our fear is that this census in 2020 will not be accurate. The census which is conducted every 10 years is done as a reflection of our democracy, which is to say that we pay attention to who is here. We distribute resources based on the need and the population of communities. We draw lines and make decisions about elected offices and jurisdictions based on the population sizes. What this president is contributing to is a faulty census that we will have to live with for the next 10 years. It is highly irresponsible because it’s yet another example of this president trying to interfere and if not weaken our democracy.”
