CBS News – The Justice Department signaled a federal judge in Maryland Friday they’re still fighting to place the citizenship question on the census, something President Donald Trump insists he wants.
They did not provide a different rationale for adding the question, which the Supreme Court insisted is necessary. U.S. District Judge George Hazel gave until 2 p.m. to explain what the administration intends to do after Trump . . . tweeted Wednesday morning his fight to keep the question.
The Justice and Commerce Departments said Tuesday the census questionnaire is being printed without it. The Supreme Court ruled last week the question couldn’t move forward as-is, because the administration’s reasoning for it was insufficient.
