ICYMI: Judge Refused To Block 2020 Census Citizenship Question On Privacy Grounds

 It’s that time, folks. The census is upon us. In 2020, the survey about our country and who lives in it that’s issued every decade will be conducted. The Trump White House wants the citizenship question to be included for the first time since 1950. You can guess how the Left reacted when they heard about this development. You bet they challenged it in court. In January, the federal judge ruled that the question was unlawful and needed to be removed. Now, a federal judge for the District Court of D.C. refused to block the citizenship question on privacy grounds. The New York decision is pending appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court (via The Hill):

The Court will deny the plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction,” wrote Judge Dabney L. Friedrich.

She argued that the Electronic Privacy Information Center, which requested the injunction, did not sufficiently prove that the government needed to do a “privacy impact assessment” before it could add a question to the census.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross first announced in March of last year that he would add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census.

EPIC said that it “intends to press forward with the census case” in a press release.

It is still unclear whether the citizenship question will appear on the 2020 census because other lawsuits to block it are still pending.

A federal judge in New York issued a ruling last month that the citizenship question was unlawful. The Supreme Court is deciding whether to take it up on appeal.
