Federal judge blocks Trump from placing citizenship question on 2020 census

(Worthy News) – A federal judge in New York has blocked the Trump administration from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

The order from Judge Jesse Furman comes a week after President Trump announced he would collect citizenship data by other means, effectively ending the administration’s attempt to update the coming census.

The order bars the Commerce Department “from including a citizenship question on the 2020 decennial census questionnaire; from delaying the process of printing the 2020 decennial census questionnaire after June 30, 2019 for the purpose of including a citizenship question; and from asking persons about citizenship status on the 2020 census questionnaire or otherwise asking a citizenship question as part of the 2020 decennial census.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
