USAToday reports that the Obama administration has launched Census in Schools, an all-out campaign targeting superintendents, principals, teachers, students and, indirectly, parents, as schools open across the nation. The message: The Census is coming and here’s why everyone should care. The program is even reaching down to preschoolers through ostensibly innocuous “Sesame Street” programming.
The goal is to send posters, teaching guides, maps and lesson plans to every school in the nation, Puerto Rico and U.S. island territories, to encourage full participation in the national count. The materials will arrive in over 118,000 schools and reach 56 million students.
“It’s great to reach the children because children are such strong voices in their homes,” says Renee Jefferson-Copeland, chief of the Census schools program. “In households that are linguistically isolated, they can express the information to their parents.”
Especially if they are illegal aliens — who are also scheduled to be included in the national headcount — which does far more than merely count people. The outcome of the tally will be reflected in an increased number of congressional districts. The Democrat controlled Congress and the Obama White House are mindful of the opportunity to swell their ranks.
Syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin writes: Open borders have profound consequences. And they don’t end with congressional apportionment. The redistribution of power extends to presidential elections because the Electoral College is pegged to the size of congressional delegations.
Malkin’s post on her blog today could not be more clear on the takeover agenda, as school children are being used to manipulate the 2010 U.S. Census.
