The important thing about the census.....

Is ensuring the constant flow of "free" federal money...

(GALVESTON COUNTING BIG TIME ON CENSUS, Harvey Rice, ChronBlog, 02/28/10)
Illegal immigrants have become crucially important to Galveston's future in the eyes of city officials because of Hurricane Ike.
The island lost as much as 20 percent of its estimated population of 57,000 after the storm, which could pose a serious problem because state and federal money is doled out on the basis of population.
The 2010 census is looming, and every head on the island, legal or illegal, will count.

The continuation of the "I got mine" mentality ensures that things will get worse, financially, in State and local gov't before it gets better.
