Supreme Court set to deliver ruling on census citizenship question

by JACQUELINE THOMSEN -The Hill  |  Published on June 24, 2019

The Supreme Court is set to hand down its much-anticipated decision on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the 2020 census.

The question has been the subject of multiple legal challenges since it was announced in early 2018. And a courtroom twist this past week added a new level of drama that could affect the Census Bureau’s timeline for finalizing and printing the decennial questionnaire.

Opponents of the citizenship question cite studies that indicate it might lead to an inaccurate population count, which would impact the data used to determine congressional representation and the allocation of federal funds to states.

The administration, however, has been steadfast in its insistence that including the question is necessary to enforce the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
