New York And ACLU Sue To Stop Census Question

The New York Daily News reports:

New York Attorney General Letitia James joined with the ACLU on Friday night in filing a motion in the Southern District of New York to block the Trump administration from delaying the printing of the 2020 census questionnaire or changing it to include a citizenship question.

In its motion, James and the civil liberties group argue that the Supreme Court has already ordered that the questionnaire couldn’t be altered after June 30.

The White House had previously supported that hard deadline, but now wants more time to change the questionnaire, given last week’s Supreme Court decision indefinitely delaying a citizenship question. “What is clear is that Defendants are out of time for a ‘do over,’” James said in a press release.
