Democrats are losing their minds over the Trump administration’s announcement that the next U.S. census will add a question about the respondent’s citizenship status.
The question was removed from the census a few decades ago and now will appear again.
Tom Perez, Chairman of the DNC, is out with typical hysteria that somehow non-citizens won’t be counted.

Regardless whether you’re a U.S. citizen and check that box, anyone who fills out the census form is counted.

Here, watch Perez take it to eleven:
