2020 Census Controversy: U.S. Supreme Court Weighs In

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Trump administration’s reason for wanting to add a question in next year’s census that would ask if you’re an American citizen.

The high court said the Commerce Department’s explanation of protecting voting rights was inadequate.

Chief Justice John Roberts joined the four liberal justices in shooting down the explanation.

It’s being considered a victory for immigrant rights groups, who’ve accused the administration of adding the question to keep non-citizens from responding to the census.
