Bor­ing but im­por­tant

The Week (US) - - 6 News -

The fight over adding a cit­i­zen­ship ques­tion to the 2020 Cen­sus just got a step closer to the Supreme Court. A fed­eral ap­peals court ruled this week that Com­merce Sec­re­tary Wil­bur Ross must tes­tify about the ques­tion, but Jus­tice Ruth Bader Gins­burg granted the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion a tem­po­rary stay pend­ing ar­gu­ments be­fore the court. More than two dozen states have sued Ross, claim­ing the de­ci­sion to ask about cit­i­zen­ship in the Cen­sus is de­signed to de­press im­mi­grant re­sponse. The ad­min­is­tra­tion has asked courts to per­ma­nently block Ross and an­other of­fi­cial from hav­ing to tes­tify. Gins­burg, who over­sees the 2nd Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals, can make that rul­ing her­self or bring it be­fore the full court.
