House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is pushing back against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) criticism of the president for wanting to add a question on the 2020 census about citizenship status.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday, McCarthy pressed that “time is critical” in getting the citizenship question on the census.
“You only do this once every 10 years. It has been on the form, especially the long form up until President Obama took it off.
