The 2020 Census has been something that has annoyed President Donald Trump and his administration and now they have gotten some good news.
The Supreme Court has ruled that the administration can halt the 2020 Census which cannot be welcome news for President Trump’s 2020 opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democrat nominee for president, who is all in on mass migration, CNN reported.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted a request from the Trump administration to halt the census count while an appeal plays out over a lower court’s order that it continue.
The administration had asked the high court for “immediate relief” because a lower court order would have required the census count to continue until October 31. The Trump administration argued that would have prevented Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross from delivering a count of the nation’s population to President Donald Trump by December 31.https://lockerdome.com/lad/12578239881353574?pubid=ld-6260-5356&pubo=https%3A%2F%2Fconservativebrief.com&rid=protrumpnews.com&width=810
The ruling is a win for the administration, which argued the shortened deadline is necessary to give the Commerce Department enough time to meet the December deadline. The administration noted that the count had been delayed by Covid-19 but that if the time spent counting were shortened, that deadline could still be met.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor was the lone dissenting vote as she said she was frightened that shortening the timeline would bring inaccurate results.
“Because the harms associated with an inaccurate census are avoidable and intolerable, I respectfully dissent from the grant of stay,” she said.
The Census Bureau said on its website that ” well over 99.9% of housing units have been accounted for in the 2020 Census.”
