Undocumented Census. On the same day that the president Donald trump announced that it will again impose the public charge rule against undocumented persons, it also asks the Supreme Court to accelerate its decision on excluding the undocumented from the Census that takes place during this 2020.

The Government of President Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court of Justice on Tuesday to expedite a decision on the Executive’s attempt to exclude undocumented immigrants from the Census.

The results of the 2020 Census are on which political representations and federal government funds are distributed.

The Government appealed against a decision of three judges in New York, according to which Congress has not granted the Executive Power the powers to adopt this measure.

The government’s lawyer, Jeffrey Wall, asked the Supreme Court justices to quickly consider the case, which could go on to the argument hearing in late November or early December.

The census is conducted in the United States every ten years by constitutional mandate, and the purpose of counting all the people present in the country is the allocation of representation of the states in Congress and the Electoral College, and billions of dollars for infrastructure programs, hospitals, schools and social assistance.

President Trump wants that, even if the decennial registration counts them, undocumented immigrants are not taken into account in the next round of political and financial allocations.

“The president’s decision will ensure that American citizens will not see their representation in Congress diminished based on the count of undocumented aliens,” White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.

In all the censuses carried out since 1790, all the people present in the country, regardless of their immigration status, have been taken into account for the distribution of seats in the House of Representatives of the Federal Congress, which now has 435 members.

In 2019, Trump tried to get the Census questionnaire to include a question about the citizenship of residents in the country, in another battle that ended with a Supreme Court decision unfavorable to the president.

The Census itself, in turn, has been seriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the office in charge of carrying it out had proposed extending the registration deadline until October 30, which was initially set for July.

The Trump administration has ordered the census to be concluded on September 30, and the pressure for a swift decision on the undocumented is adding to the uncertainty surrounding the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Gingsburg and the president’s determination. for the Senate to confirm who will take his place before the November 3 elections.
