ACLU Seeks To Block President Trump From A Census Executive Order

On the heels of the Supreme Court ruling on a citizenship question on the 2020 Census, the President is debating on issuing an executive order to put it on the 2020 Census, and the ACLU is looking to block him.

In documents filed Friday, the ACLU has asked a federal judge to permanently ban President Donald Trump from putting the question on the census. In a separate lawsuit, several groups have asked a federal judge to force the Administration to release documents related to their motivations behind the question, suggesting that there may be discriminatory factors behind their decision.

In the ruling Department of Commerce v. New York, the Supreme court ruled that the citizenship question was legal, however they wanted more sufficient reasoning for the addition of the question to the census. Earlier Friday, the President said he was considering executive action to add the question to the census.
