Supreme Court poised to give Trump victory on census citizenship question

On Tuesday the U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative majority appeared poised to hand President Donald Trump a victory on his administration’s plan to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

Reuters reports that this is a move opponents call a Republican effort to deter immigrants from taking part.

Conservative justices signaled during arguments in the closely watched case a willingness to overturn a lower court ruling that blocked the question and appeared untroubled by the administration’s stated justification for using the citizenship question in the decennial population count.
