Barr says he sees a legal path for census citizenship question

"The Departments of Justice and Commerce have been asked to reevaluate all available options following the Supreme Court's decision and whether the Supreme Court's decision would allow for a new decision to include the citizenship question on the 2020 Decennial Census", Justice Department lawyers wrote in a filing Friday.

The Department of Justice is seeking a new rational to implement a citizenship question into the 2020 census after being blocked by the Supreme Court, with a district court giving the administration until Friday to provide new reasoning or commit to leaving the census without the question.

Political districts have been drawn based on total population, rather than citizen population, the Wall Street Journal points out.

They can do that by spending money, time and political capital on efforts to get every homo sapien with a Utah address to answer the census.

However, by remanding the case back to the liberal NY district court, going before an Obama-appointed judge with noted left-wing family connections, the court assured that any legal challenges might result in delays in printing the questionnaire. Last year, a senior career Justice Department official resigned in the wake of the administration's move to stop defending a key provision of the Affordable Care Act.

In that Supreme Court ruling, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the four liberal justices in announcing the authorities has the right kind to quiz a citizenship quiz but must smartly interpret doing so, which would changes the Census Bureau's longstanding practice.

Democrats anxiety that if President Trump is winning, districts with high numbers of immigrants - equivalent to main cities - will lose congressional representation, since census files is at grief of settle the distribution of federal funding and the number of congressional seats.

The center of the challengers' new grievance was that, repeatedly over the past year as the controversy unfolded before several courts, administration lawyers pushed the cases along at "breakneck speed" with the argument that the Census Bureau had to know by June 30 - five days ago - what it was going to be putting on the census forms. "Yet the Secretary did not rely on that rationale in his decisional memorandum", Francisco said, adding that it was "implausible that the Secretary would affirmatively choose not to adopt the reasons provided by the Attorney General of Louisiana in a public letter and discussions memorialized in the administrative record", while "secretly" adopting Hofeller's reasons.

The official stressed that as of now the census will be printed without the citizenship question. The court ruled that in theory the government can ask about citizenship on the census and left open the possibility that the administration could offer a plausible rationale to add the question.

It's unclear what new rationale for asking the question the administration might include in a presidential memorandum.

The Trump administration announced on Tuesday that it was dropping the citizenship question from the 2020 Census.

"We can commence the printing (of the census forms) now and in all likelihood attain an addendum after we gain a certain decision, so we're engaged on a mode of issues, in conjunction with an government recount", he added. There's other questions in the census form and they combine all that and that's how we find out about our country", she said on "Cavuto: "Coast-to-Coast".

An executive order exists to inform federal agencies on how to enact the laws passed by Congress, or on how to act in a manner that matches the Constitution.

But real consultants screech govt orders would possibly presumably well no longer override Supreme Court docket selections.

Executive attorneys mentioned supreme that the justice and commerce departments had been "suggested to glimpse whether there is a route forward".
