Judge Jessie Furman, in her turn from two countries, also pointed out the seriousness with which the court will continue to follow this controversial issue by saying: "The court will retain jurisdiction in this case to fulfill the terms of this decree, of the Census in 2020 are processed and sent to the President by December 31, 2020. "
President Donald Trump announced last week that he would seek citizenship information from agencies already collecting the data after the Supreme Court ruling in June, who kept an order from a lower court to block the question of citizenship from the census.
Trump has repeatedly stated that he will continue to struggle to raise the issue despite the court's decision before eventually issuing an order last week, directing the Department of Commerce to receive citizenship data means other than the census instead of trying to put the issue on the census forms or adding them separately. The order covers the Department of Homeland Security, which includes services for citizenship and asylum, and the Social Security Administration.
In the case of the Supreme Court, the Trump administration said the issue of the citizenship of a census questionnaire was needed to better comply with federal voting rights. Citizens 'rights groups say this is an attempt to intimidate non-Roma and Latin American households, and will lead to a decline in respondents' rates and under-representation of minorities.
Census changes can affect the balance of power in the States and the House of Representatives, which are based on the general population. Census data is used to allocate Congress seats and billions of dollars in dollars and dollars in the next decade.
Lawyers of the administration informed the courts last week that efforts to add a census issue would be rejected.
