Judge’s Order Permanently Blocks Census Question

Bloomberg Law reports:

A federal judge in New York on Tuesday signed an order permanently blocking the Trump administration from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census, days after President Trump gave up on his efforts to get such a question on next year’s census.

New York and immigrant advocacy groups successfully sued to block the question. But even after the Supreme Court ruled against President Donald Trump in June, he said he was still considering ways to place a citizenship query on the once-a-decade survey. He surrendered that fight on July 11.
