Reopened Legal Challenge to Census Citizenship Question Throws Case Into Chaos The battle over whether to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census was thrown into turmoil on Tuesday, just as the Supreme Court was expected to issue a ruling on the dispute this week. By allowing a district judge to reopen a case related to the origin of the question, a federal appeals court raised the prospect that the federal government might be unable to meet a deadline for completing census questionnaires that include it, regardless of the Supreme Court’s ruling. New hearings in the reopened case would stretch well beyond July 1, which is the deadline for printing the questionnaire and other forms.

Trump citizenship plan will face logistical, legal hurdles.
WASHINGTON (AP) — After failing to get his citizenship question on the census, President Donald Trump now says his fallback plan will provide an even more accurate count — determining the citizenship of 90 percent of the population "or more." But his plan will likely be limited by logistical hurdles and legal restrictions. Trump wants to distill a massive trove of data across seven government agencies — and possibly across 50 states.
