The Supreme Court just heard arguments in one of the most important cases it will hear this year.
It could determine the fate of which party controls Congress.
And Neil Gorsuch is about to hand Trump a massive victory that Nancy Pelosi will hate.
The 2020 census will determine the Congressional district map for the next decade.
That map could either cement a Democrat majority, or leave control of Congress up to citizens in fair elections.
To get an accurate count of American citizens to ensure the most fair Congressional map possible, the Trump administration added a question asking if you are a citizen.
Liberals sued claiming this was biased against Hispanics.
Lower court judges went along for the ride and now the case is before the Supreme Court.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday over the Trump administration’s bid to append a citizenship question to the 2020 census questionnaire.
Democratic states and city governments are challenging the citizenship question, fearing that diminished noncitizen participation will deprive them of federal funding and seats in Congress. The Justice Department, on the other hand, says citizenship questions have regularly appeared on past census forms and enhance the enforcement of federal law.
“Citizenship and other demographic questions have long been a part of the decennial census despite their potential effect on response rates,” Solicitor General Noel Francisco told the justices in court filings.
“The commerce secretary expressly acknowledged the very concerns respondents raise here, but made the policy judgment that ‘the value of more complete and accurate’ citizenship data ‘outweighs such concerns,’” he added.
A question about citizenship is not unprecedented.
It appeared on the census for 70 years in the late 1800s to the mid 1900s.
But liberals don’t want to include the question because they want to count illegal aliens that live in Democrat states to count for redistricting.
That way, they can win the new districts without ever having to contest them.
But the rule of law and the original intent of the framers is on the Trump administration’s side.
