SCOTUS Rules Trump Administration Can End 2020 Census Count Now
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court sided with President Trump’s administration in allowing the census count to stop early, instead of it being required to continue until the end of the month.
The Trump administration argued that, in order for the U.S. Census Bureau to have enough time to make the year-end deadline for deciding the amount of congressional seats for each state, the count needed to end immediately. Civil rights groups and local governments sued, arguing that minorities and others in hard-to-count communities might be missed if the process ended early.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the lone dissenter.

This is a big win for the Trump administration.
