Trump said to be giving up fight on citizenship question


Trump Renews Push for Citizenship Question, Despite Supreme Court Ruling

But even then, White House aides were scurrying late into the afternoon to figure out from which room or garden the president might make his announcement.

After hinting that he'd defy the Supreme Court and issue an executive order to have the citizenship question placed on the census, it appears that President Donald Trump is giving up the fight and will instead take executive action to instruct the Commerce Department to obtain an estimate of us citizenship through other means, according to ABC News.

Mimi Rocah, a former federal prosecutor, told Rubin that the Trump Administration has been totally disingenuous about its motivation for wanting to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census.

Congressional Democrats have voiced outspoken opposition to the idea of a citizenship question.

Trump is expected to speak on the citizenship question later Thursday, following a summit of Trump-supporting personalities and lawmakers at the White House.

Mr. Trump has previously told reporters he was considering an executive order, although he also said last week his administration was exploring multiple possible other routes.

The ACLU is challenging the question in both NY federal court and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Justice Department and Commerce Department officials have said that printing has started for paper forms that do not include the question.

Opponents of the question say it will depress participation by immigrants, lowering the population count in states that tend to vote Democratic and decreasing government funds to those areas because funding levels are based on population counts.

The Census Bureau's own experts have said requiring information about citizenship would discourage immigrants from participating and lead to a less accurate cont.

The court's decision does leave open the possibility for the administration to make another case for the question.

The Supreme Court blocked the question from appearing on the census in a 5-4 ruling last month. He said the government has the right to ask a citizenship question, but it needs to provide an appropriate explanation for adding such a question. We're spending 15 to 20 billion dollars on a census.

President Donald Trump will take executive action to place the citizenship question on the 2020 Census, reports indicated July 11.

A NY judge made the decision Tuesday, saying the request is "patently deficient".

The 40-year-old's best showing at the competition was in 2014 at Royal Liverpool when he finished in a tie for 54th place. The R&A rejected his request for a cart over the weekend, saying it felt walking was an integral part of the tournament.

Article I of the Constitution specifically gives Congress the power to control census operations.

Still, President Trump has been vocal in not wanting to back down.

The legal battle has also extended to how the Department of Justice has handled the case. "[Trump's] effort to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census is unlawful".

Attorneys defending the administration, however, will be coming from a new team of Justice Department lawyers.

Hazel noted that it is well within the authority of the U.S. Attorney General to decide which lawyers to put on a case, but emphasized that this does not mean everything argued up to this point will be forgotten.

Earlier this week, the department sought to replace the team of lawyers assigned to the effort, after at least some career attorneys on the case grew frustrated with the Trump administration's sudden shift in position on whether it could keep fighting.

It is still ultimately unclear what Trump will announce during the press conference on Thursday.
