Trump wants to delay 2020 Census after Supreme Court blocks citizenship question

Washington - Supreme Court Upholds Rule Allowing State, Federal Charges

In a flurry of partially concurring and dissenting opinions on Thursday, the Supreme Court blocked the Census Bureau from going ahead with a question on USA citizenship on the 2020 survey, which could shape political representation for a decade, if not a generation. The ruling gives Commerce a chance to offer a justification that can pass legal scrutiny.

Writing for a majority comprised of Republican-appointed judges, Chief Justice John Roberts said, "partisan gerrymandering is nothing new".

On the one hand, the court's majority opinion didn't preclude states from adopting rules to curb maps that help one party or the other.

Kavanaugh, 54, also quietly did what he could to fix his public image, having been confirmed by a 50-48 Senate vote on October 6, one of the tightest margins ever for a justice, after denying accusations of sexual assault. In a section agreed with by the court's liberals, he said the Commerce Department must provide a clearer explanation. To delay the 2020 census without running afoul of federal law would require Congress to change the law, according to Margo Anderson, a USA census historian and professor at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. This month those challenging the redistricting map filed papers in the lower courts, alleging that Hofeller's own words on his hard drive demonstrate that North Carolina Republicans used deceptive and improper tactics in their redistricting efforts.

Roberts, the product of a comfortable middle-class upbringing in IN where he attended Catholic schools, has a genial demeanor on the bench and avoids the hard-edge writing in opinions that some justices on the right and left occasionally employ.

The chief justice was the swing vote.

In response, President Trump tweeted that it was "totally ridiculous" that the government could not ask such a question.

Which is why Thursday's ruling is so dispiriting.

The justices found that the statute is "markedly different" to what the US Patent and Trademark Office proposed. He says the Supreme Court has previously been reluctant to intervene in the drawing of local political districts, but that it would step in when districts included unequal numbers of residents, or when they were drawn to exclude racial minorities or to cluster those minorities in certain districts.

"This decision tears at the fabric of our democracy and puts the interests of the established few above the many". "But I think that's where we're going to have to as a nation come to terms with what a disaster partisan gerrymandering is across the country".

He was joined in his ruling by the court's four Democratic appointees.

Nicholson said that means if a state legislative map runs afoul of the rules laid out in Clean Missouri, someone could sue in a state court.

During his Senate confirmation hearing in 2005, Roberts famously told senators he saw the role of a judge as similar to a baseball umpire, a purely neutral arbiter. "Those numbers are way out of proportion to what people should expect", Oliver said.

Trump himself presents an additional problem for Roberts. Since congressional districts and federal funding are based not on the number of citizens but on the total population, the consequences of the undercount would be to reduce the political representation of immigrant-heavy districts, majority densely populated urban centers, and shift federal resources away from them.

The census ruling in particular showcased the willingness of Roberts to craft compromises.

"Adding a citizenship question to the U.S. Census was a blatant attempt to scare people away from making their voices count, and the Supreme Court saw right through it. Republicans will do literally everything possible to stop the American people from exercising their rights, because they are terrified of the result-Republican loss of power". The decision could embolden political line-drawing for partisan gain when state lawmakers undertake the next round of redistricting following the 2020 census. The NRDC criticized the ruling in a statement.
