The US Census. Yesterday, a federal judge barred the Trump admin from ending the 2020 Census a month early. Reminder: The admin had moved up the deadline from October 31 to September 30, saying it was needed in order to process all data before the end of the year. But civil rights groups sued, arguing it would lead to a serious undercount that would disproportionately impact immigrants and people of color. And a federal judge agreed. The census determines how many seats each state gets in the House. And how federal funding should be divided for things like schools and hospitals. Now, a federal court is saying the census has through the end of October to finish its once-a-decade count of every US resident. The admin is expected to appeal the ruling. – from the DailySkimm’
