Valley Organization’s Fight Against Citizenship Question Not Over

News

The controversial citizenship question on the 2020 census is in limbo, as the US Supreme Court issued a ruling that blocks the question, for now.

La Union Del Pueblo Entero, an organization involved in a lawsuit against the questions, says their fight is not over, and that the ruling could allow for the citizenship question to come back.

The organization hopes that their lawsuit will prove that the citizenship question was added with discriminatory intent.

An undercount tied to the citizenship question could also cost Texas at least one of the three congressional seats it was expected to gain because of the population growth the state has experienced in the last decade.

The deadline to print the forms is July 1, raising questions about whether the government will be able to add the question even if it is approved.

President Donald trump asked lawyers to delay the Census, no matter how long it takes, until the  Supreme Court is given additional information to make a final decision.
