  • 1.1K Views

Federal Judge Jesse Furman, in New York, has signed an order that will permanently block President Trump's administration from asking about citizenship on the 2020 census. This comes right after Trump has already given up on trying to get the question on the census.

This order, according to a report by The Hill, was written up by people in both parties who opposed of the citizenship question. Once the order was signed by Judge Furman, it then stops the officials in Trump's administration “from including a citizenship question on the 2020 decennial census questionnaire; from delaying the process of printing the 2020 decennial census questionnaire after June 30, 2019 for the purpose of including a citizenship question; and from asking persons about citizenship status on the 2020 census questionnaire or otherwise asking a citizenship question as part of the 2020 decennial census.”

It goes a little bit further than that. The order also gives Judge Furman the ability to enforce the order until the results of the census are processed and then sent to President Trump by the end of December, 2020.

The Hill also stated that "the parties in the case, including the state of New York and the American Civil Liberties Union, told Furman in a letter filed earlier Tuesday that they had written the proposed order and that the Justice Department "does not oppose" the judge signing it."

Last week, Trump had issued his own executive order that would make federal agencies give the records that relate to citizenship to the Commerce Department. This comes after they determined that where wasn't a practical way to include the citizenship question on the "2020 decennial census."

Judge Furman's decision to keep the question off the 2020 census was part of an order ruled in the Supreme Court, one which they upheld.

Judge Furman was appointed by former President Barack Obama, on June 7, 2011.
