    A part of government anti-immigrant policy that President Trump and his aides pursued throughout their four years in office reached its end on Friday in a federal courthouse in California. The aim was to exclude up to 11 million undocumented immigrants from being counted in the 2020 census. Trump’s legal team told a federal judge that the plan cannot be finished before the new Biden Administration opens next Wednesday. Here is what President Trump and his Republican allies are now losing: the chance to gain seats for “red” (Republican-oriented) states in the U.S. House of Representatives and, with that, increased...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday vacated two lower court decisions that blocked the government from excluding illegal aliens during the process of allotting congressional seats While the Supreme Court's Dec. 18 decision will allow the Trump administration to pursue the policy of excluding illegal aliens from the apportionment base, the ruling stated: "Consistent with our determination that standing has not been shown and that the case is not ripe, we express no view on the merits of the constitutional and related statutory claims presented. We hold only that they are not suitable for adjudication at this time."

    Eureka! We found that gold you hear about in California. And it just left.California lost so many people in the last decade that when the census numbers are all tabulated, it could lose a congressional seat. Even the state’s Rose Bowl game just left for Texas.The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the California Department of Finance says the state grew by only 21,200 residents in the past year, the lowest since 1900.“This is a real sea change in California, which used to be this state of pretty robust population growth,” said Hans Johnson, a demographer at the Public Policy Institute of...

    The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 on Friday to dismiss a challenge to the Trump administration’s exclusion of undocumented immigrants from the U.S. census, the once-per-decade population count used to allocate House seats among the states. The decision broke along ideological lines, with the court’s six conservative justices finding that the lawsuit brought by nearly two dozen states was premature. The court’s three more liberal members dissented. NPR reported: The U.S. Supreme Court dodged a ruling on whether President Trump can exclude undocumented immigrants from a key census count. The opinion said the case was “riddled with contingencies and speculation that...

    WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — The Supreme Court on Monday heard oral arguments in President Donald Trump’s unprecedented effort to exclude immigrants living in the country illegally from the population totals used to divvy up congressional seats. In a memo in July, Trump outlined that millions of noncitizens should be excluded from the once-a-decade head count of the U.S. population that determines how many seats each state gets in the House of Representatives. The census also determines the allocation of some federal funding. The Supreme Court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority including three justices appointed by Trump, met by teleconference...

    As director of the U.S. Census Bureau from 1998 to 2001, Kenneth Prewitt oversaw the first decennial count of the new century. When the enormous job of data collection was finally done, he arrived at a stark conclusion: The government should stop asking every American to report their race. “The race question is incoherent because race is incoherent,” said Prof. Prewitt, now a professor of public affairs at Columbia University. “We pay a price for not having a more subtle, nuanced set of numbers than what we currently have.” Prof. Prewitt and many other demographers and sociologists say that the...

    There is nothing but bad news for the Democrat Party agenda and the House Democrat caucus from the 2020 elections — both in terms of the numbers of seats won in the House for the upcoming term, and in the control of state legislatures which will be engaged in the process of redrawing House district boundaries following the release of the 2020 Census.Fivethirtyeight has done an analysis of how the outcome of the election in state legislatures will now spill over to the control of this remapping process, and the math says that the GOP will be in complete control...

    A federal court in California on Thursday ruled against President Trump's order to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count for apportioning congressional seats, dealing the administration its second court loss over the July executive memorandum. A panel of three judges for the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California ruled that the memo was unconstitutional and violated laws governing the census. "The policy which the Presidential Memorandum attempts to enact has already been rejected by the Constitution, the applicable statutes, and 230 years of history," the panel wrote in a 90-page decision. The order forbids the Commerce...
  • What the Supreme Court’s rulings mean for the 2020 Census and Trump’s attempt to exclude the undocumented from the count

    The Supreme Court has cleared a path for the Trump administration to exclude undocumented immigrants from representation, potentially altering the balance of power in Congress for the next 10 years. The court Tuesday cut short the census count by two weeks, which census experts and civil rights advocates say risks producing a less accurate count. Then on Friday, the court said it would review President Trump’s efforts to omit unauthorized immigrants when apportioning congressional seats. That decision overturned a lower court’s order that had blocked the Commerce Department and Census Bureau from including information about the undocumented when they deliver...

    Trump administration policies on the census, asylum seekers and the border wall, held illegal by lower courts, are on the Supreme Court's agenda Friday. The most pressing case before the justices when they meet privately, and by telephone because of the coronavirus pandemic, involves the census. They are considering the Trump administration's appeal to be allowed to exclude people living in the U.S. illegally from the population count that will be used to allocate seats in the House of Representatives — and by extension the Electoral College — among the states for the next 10 years. The administration wants the...
