BREAKING: Supreme Court conservatives signal possible support for census citizenship question
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
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.
