Raw Story reports:
On Monday, the U.S. Census Bureau announced that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross “has announced a target date of October 5, 2020 to conclude 2020 Census self-response and field data collection operations.” This comes despite an order by a federal judge on Friday directing the census to continue through October 31. The initial decision of the bureau to end counting early sparked controversy, and fears that the count might not be finished properly.
