On the advice of the Justice Department, President Trump has asserted executive privilege over subpoenaed documents related to the House Oversight Committee’s investigation of the Census citizenship question.

The big picture: The House Oversight Committee is preparing to vote to hold Attorney General Bill Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt Wednesday for refusing to turn over subpoenaed materials. The committee is investigating whether the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census was politically motivated, a controversy that could have major implications for future federal funding and redistricting.

The article goes on to state the following:

Ross has defended the citizenship question as necessary to enhance the 1965 Voting Rights Act, despite the Census Bureau’s own analysis that it could scare households with non-citizens into low response rates.

What they’re saying: Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said he would delay the contempt vote until this afternoon so that members of the committee could read DOJ’s letter, but he slammed the administration for its “blanket defiance.”

    Illegal aliens don’t have ANY say in a vote, follow the rules, become a citizen and then you get a vote. Not until then.

      Definitely only American citizens are allowed to vote.
