To Hutchinson News Facebook members and others who question the census: There is no such category as non-legal citizen. You are a citizen or not. The census is a count of inhabitants. All inhabitants (citizen and non-citizen, in this country legally or not) need police, fire, ambulance and hospital services, stores and other businesses, entertainment venues, etc., etc.

Census data are used to plan, operate and fund government, services and businesses. Want them to be adequate for you? Please, one person in each household, fill out the census completely and accurately.
