Justice Department signals to court it's still fighting for citizenship question

Trump Weighs Executive Order for Census Citizenship Question

President Donald Trump said Friday he was weighing an executive order to overcome a Supreme Court ruling blocking his administration from adding a question about citizenship to the 2020 United States census, which opponents say is politically motivated.

The US Justice Department is still considering how to proceed on an effort to add a citizenship question to the 2020 US Census, according to court papers filed yesterday.

President Trump said on Friday an executive order was among the options he was considering to force the question on to the census.

"The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect or, to state it differently, FAKE!"

An executive order exists to inform federal agencies on how to enact the laws passed by Congress, or on how to act in a manner that matches the Constitution.

The question had been included for years, said Cuccinelli, and it's important to know who is in the country legally for "voter allocation and because of the requirements of the Voting Rights Act".

On the different hand, the sort of dash by the president directing the Census Bureau to consist of the inquire of may per chance well suggested a brand contemporary round of lawsuits from civil rights groups who at the beginning sued to block the inquire of.

But administration attorneys did no longer invent any real justification for the census request by a court docket deadline.

The Supreme Court rejected the initial rationale for adding the question to the 2020 census as "contrived".

Samsung's rise in market share is even more remarkable, considering how reports point to an overall decline in smartphone sales. People who have tested the re-designed Galaxy Fold said the tension is harder but more natural. "It was embarrassing .

Commerce Secretary Ross already noted that the Census Bureau started printing the questionnaires without the citizenship question.

Democrats fret that if President Trump is successful, districts with high numbers of immigrants - such as foremost cities - will lose congressional representation, since census recordsdata is aged to make a selection the distribution of federal funding and the need of congressional seats.

"Think about it, 15 to 20 billion dollars and you're not allowed to ask them 'are you a citizen?'" Mr Trump said.

In the meantime, the DOJ said it will continue to print census forms without the citizenship question.

It appeared settled when government lawyers indicated they had dropped the question, and officials began printing the census without it.

U.S. President Donald Trump talks to reporters as he departs for travel to New Jersey from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, U.S., July 5, 2019. "It also provides information about the population with multiple citizenships and the number of immigrants in Canada who hold Canadian citizenship".

The challengers asked the judge to amend his earlier order against the question so that it made clear that the administration had surrendered any authority it had to now include that inquiry because of the way the government's lawyers had handled the controversy in the courts or to issue a fresh order to ban the question and to ban any steps toward including the question in the months ahead. If the administration does devise a new rationale, the Justice Department filing acknowledged, the plaintiffs "will be fully entitled to challenge that decision at that time".

"The Trump administration many occasions argued the census kinds couldn't be altered after June 30".

Opponents of adding the citizenship question to the census pointed out that an executive order can not supersede a court ruling.
