One in six U.S. workers is foreign born; Census Bureau does sales job - 12/07/09

From this: Nearly one in six American workers is foreign-born, the highest proportion since the 1920s, according to a census analysis released Monday [note: see the graphic]. ...In 2007, immigrants accounted for more than one in four workers in California (35 percent), New York (27 percent), New Jersey (26 percent) and Nevada (25 percent).

Census Bureau collaborating with foreign consuls - 11/10/09

From this: In an effort to allay any fears between the immigrant community and federal authorities, officials with the 2010 Census met with consuls of several Latin American countries to ask for support in their communities to spread the word about the importance of being counted. “It is vital that every person living in the United States takes part to assure accurate representation and funding for vital services”, said Marycarmen Moran, promoter of the 2010 Census, adding that the consuls agreed to do all they can to make the census a success. Those present included, of course,...

NAS-revised Census Bureau stats: almost 1 in 6 U.S. residents in poverty (+Hope Yen lies) - 10/20/09

The Census Bureau has released new poverty statistics that may show even more U.S. residents are below the poverty line than previously thought. The new statistics - which are more "experimental" figures and not the official figures - show that almost 1 in 6 U.S. residents are below the poverty line.

Census Bureau: 46.3 million uninsured in U.S., including 9.5 million non-citizens (keep watching for liars) - 09/10/09

The Census Bureau has released "Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2008", and the PDF can be downloaded from here.

Mesenbourg of Census pledges to count every illegal alien (NCLR, LULAC,NALEO, congressional apportionment) - 05/23/09

From this: The acting director of the U.S. Census Bureau, Thomas Mesenbourg, told CNSNews.com that the bureau intends to work with community organizations to make sure every illegal alien in the United States is counted in the 2010 Census... Mesenbourg's comments were made after a press conference on Wednesday where Commerce Secretary Gary Locke joined several interest groups, including Univision, the National Council of La Raza, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) to talk about efforts to ensure a...

Census Bureau compiling everyone's GPS coordinates - 05/04/09

At first, this and this about the Census Bureau using GPS to record the coordinates of every household in the U.S. might seem like tinfoil hat talk. And, it would be great of one of our favorite "debunkers" treated it as such, because the fundamental are actually true. Let's turn to this NPR report from July 31, 2006 (link): Two-and-a-half years from now, in early 2009, the Census Bureau plans to send an army of 100,000 temporary workers down every street and dusty, dirt road in America. They will be armed with handheld GPS devices. Robert LaMacchia, head of the Census Bureau's geography...

Census worker sign: "Yes we can! 2010 census." (highly politicized Los Angeles office) - 04/06/09

Ari Bloomekatz of the Los Angeles Times offers this blurb: "The census is here!" shouted Esther Cepeda, manager of the local census office downtown. Music played and employees carried signs that read: "The census, coming to your neighborhood" and "Yes we can! 2010 census." "Yes we can" was, of course, one of Barack Obama's campaign slogans, and he took it from the slogan "si se puede"; if there are Spanish-language versions of those signs it would almost certainly be translated into that phrase. While it's had other uses, that slogan was more recently used in support of illegal immigration at...

Andrew Rosenthal /NYT: no immigration raids during Census - 03/31/09

Andrew Rosenthal, editorial page editor of the New York Times, offers "A Champion for the Census?" (link) about new Department of Commerce secretary Gary Locke. It contains this not very surprising suggestion: For instance, in the run-up to other censuses, the federal government has eased up on immigration raids and other intimidating forms of immigration enforcement in an effort to cut down on the number of people who are afraid to be counted. The word must go out from the Obama administration that it expects the same cooperation as the 2010 count approaches.

Rep. William Lacy Clay: no immigration raids during Census (+Gary Locke) - 03/30/09

Hope Yen of the Associated Press says: (Rep. William Lacy Clay, Democrat of Missouri) said he planned to push the Obama administration to halt raids next year, noting that immigration officials did so during the 2000 census... "It think it should be repeated to tamp down on any fears the immigrant population might have on certain raids, whether they are here legally or not," said Clay, who chairs the House subcommittee overseeing the census. Further: Speaking at a Census Bureau training conference, (Department of Commerce secretary Gary Locke and Clay) tried to allay fears in Hispanic and...

ACORN is helping the U.S. Census Bureau recruit workers (4 billion Americans, all Democrats?) - 03/17/09

From this: The U.S. Census is supposed to be free of politics, but one group with a history of voter fraud, ACORN, is participating in next year's count, raising concerns about the politicization of the decennial survey. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States -- currently believed to be more than 306 million people. Needless to say, ACORN can do much better than...

Census Bureau will report directly to Obama, bypass Commerce; to help count illegal aliens, non-citizens - 02/05/09

After complains from black and Hispanic groups, the Obama administration will be requiring the Census Bureau to report directly to the White House, bypassing Judd Gregg, the Republican who was appointed to head the Department of Commerce (link). This is clearly an attempt to make sure that as many illegal aliens and other non-citizens are counted in an attempt to obtain both money and power. Don't just take my word for it, here's an earlier statement from the New Democratic Network admitting as much. After Gregg was appointed, the National Association of Latino Elected Officials - a group...

Hispanic Caucus wants Latino at Commerce to influence the Census - 01/06/09

Guillermo Garcia of the San Antonio Express News offers "Latinos push Obama on vacant post" (link). The Congressional Hispanic Caucus is going to work with other, unnamed groups to push for a Latino to be named Secretary of the Department of Congress. They settled on one candidate, who a source says was Xavier Becerra; however, he's since indicated he's not interested. In any case, not only are they explicit about their support for a racial quota system, but they also reveal why: in order to influence the Census. Note that in 2007, the Census Bureau called for a halt to immigration raids...

Barack Obama lies about Census Bureau poverty statistics - 08/26/08

You could have seen this coming from miles away. The Census Bureau today released their 2007 statistics on poverty and those without health insurance. Also today, Barack Obama lied when he said: "Another 816,000 Americans fell into poverty in 2007 — including nearly 500,000 children — bringing the total increase in Americans in poverty under President Bush to 5.7 million... And on Bush’s watch, an additional 7.2 million Americans have fallen into the ranks of the uninsured. This is the failed record of George Bush’s economic policies that Sen. McCain has called ‘great progress." I'll leave...

Census Bureau releases 2007 poverty/lack of health insurance numbers: watch out for liars - 08/26/08

The Census Bureau has released their report with the numbers of those below the poverty line and without health insurance for 2007; see this PDF file. What you'll probably hear from the mainstream media and others is that 45.7 million "Americans" are without health insurance (down from 47 million in 2006), and that there are 37.3 million "Americans" below the poverty line (up from 36.4 million in 2006).
