Today a federal judge ordered the Trump Administration to hand information about its plan to ask people filling out the 2020 census form whether they are U.S. citizens over to a group of states and cities suing the administration over the question.U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman also said he would likely deny the administration’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit. The plaintiffs in the lawsuits say that the census question could lead to undercounting in states with large immigrant populations, jeopardizing their political representation and access to federal funds.

Why do illegals need political representation?  They aren’t US citizens.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood, says this is a major win.

The U.S. Department of Commerce, which oversees the Census Bureau, isn’t very pleased with the ruling. I see nothing wrong in asking if one is a legal citizen or not.

There were 17 states that filed the lawsuit back in April,  including New York, Pennsylvania and Illinois, and six cities, including New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago. Of course, all of these cities and states were run by Democrats. The same people who put illegals and criminals above all law abiding, legal citizens.

DOJ lawyer Brett Shumate, said that the case should be dismissed because only Congress, not courts, had the authority to review census questions.

The U.S. Constitution mandates a decennial census, which is used to determine the drawing of political boundaries, the allocation of seats in Congress and at the state and local level, and the annual distribution of about $700 billion of federal funds.
