Court lets trial on cen­sus ques­tion move for­ward

Merced Sun-Star (Saturday) - - Local -

The Supreme Court re­fused Fri­day to de­lay an up­com­ing trial in which a num­ber of states and civil rights or­ga­ni­za­tions al­lege that there was an im­proper po­lit­i­cal mo­tive in Com­merce Sec­re­tary Wil­bur Ross’ de­ci­sion to add a cit­i­zen­ship ques­tion to the 2020 Cen­sus.

The trial is sched­uled for next week in New York. Jus­tices Clarence Thomas, Sa­muel Al­ito Jr. and Neil Gor­such would have granted the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion’s re­quest to de­lay the trial.

The ad­min­is­tra­tion has been to the court sev­eral times to try to keep the chal­lengers from ques­tion­ing of­fi­cials about adding the ques­tion.
