Citizenship Question Added in “Bad Faith”

In my last post, I included a link to a joint federal lawsuit filed by several states, cities, and counties regarding the constitutionality of the proposed addition of a citizenship item to the 2020 Census.

A federal judge presiding over the case has now stated that shifting justifications for the question from Wilbur Ross, coupled with a general lack of zeal in the current administration thus far in upholding the Voting Rights Act, suggest that the administration is acting “in bad faith” by ordering the addition of the question. The decision allows prosecutors to search correspondence and solicit sworn testimony from senior officials.

Here’s the NY Times story.
