"I do think [a citizenship question will be on the 2020 census]," Cuccinelli said. "I think the president has expressed determination. He's noted that the Supreme Court didn't say this can't be asked, they said they didn't appreciate the process by which it came forward the first time."

"The president is determined to fix that and have it roll forward in the 2020 census," Cuccinelli said.

The Supreme Court blocked the Trump administration’s push to include a citizenship question on June 27 in a 5-4 decision. The justices did not kill the possibility of adding the question, but questioned the sincerity of the Trump administration’s motives. The court asked the administration to resubmit the request with better reasoning.

The Commerce Department had argued that allowing the question would aid the Justice Department in enforcing the Voting Rights Act.

Trump announced last week that he is considering an executive order to put the question on the census instead of working through the Supreme Court.

It would seem to me that this kind of attention should have been asked when somebody in the Obama regime decided to get rid of it.” — Rush Limbaugh, a conservative commentator, on Friday “Why can’t we just ask the question the way it was asked for 50 years before the Obama administration yanked it out of there?” — Kellyanne Conway, the White House counselor, on Tuesday False.
