The Supreme Court’s conservative justices signaled possible support Tuesday for the Trump administration’s bid to ask about citizenship on the 2020 census, during a high-stakes argument where partisan lines were quickly drawn.

While the liberal justice peppered the government with questions about the plan, the conservative justices were mostly silent during arguments, in a sign the conservative majority could hold in the administration’s favor in the closely watched case.

At issue is the level of discretion Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross — who oversees the U.S. Census Bureau — has to change information contained in the once-a-decade population count.

The article goes on to state the following:

The 85-minute oral argument Tuesday grew testy at times, with several on the bench interrupting counsel repeatedly, and others offering lengthy explanations of their legal positions.

The four left-leaning justices pressed the solicitor general for the Justice Department to explain the reasoning behind the citizenship question, noting experts at the Census Bureau have said the citizenship question could lead to an undercount of as many as 6.5 million, especially in urban areas.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor said there was “no doubt” many in the immigrant community would be discouraged from participating.

Show your support for President Trump!

    The census is to count US Citizens. YES! ABSOLUTELY!! POSITIVELY!!!! The question needs to be on the census. Only I believe the non-citizens will lie and say they are citizens knowing the Gov’t will not spend millions to audit it.
    Round up the non-citizen, illegal migrants and send them all back. Refugees are only to be here for refuge, when the danger they fled is over, Refugees are supposed to go back to their homes. Send them back too. Between the migrants and refugees abusing our system they are bankrupting the US, bringing in diseases and destroying the American way of life.

    Counting illegals is as bad as the old policy of counting slaves as 3/5. Slaves should never have been counted and neither should illegals.
