US official: 2020 census to end Oct. 5 despite court order

Source: Houston Chronicle

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross says the 2020 census will end Oct. 5, despite a federal judge's ruling last week that the head count of every U.S. resident should continue through the end of October, according to a tweet posted on the Census Bureau's website Monday.

The tweet said the ability for people to self-respond to the census questionnaire and the door-knocking phase when census takers go to homes that haven't yet responded is ending Oct. 5. The announcement came as a virtual hearing was being held in San Jose, California, as a follow-up to U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh's preliminary injunction. Koh asked federal government attorneys during Monday's hearing to provide documents on how the new decision to end the head count on Oct. 5 was made. The judge asked, ďA one sentence tweet? Are you saying that is enough reason to establish decision-making? A one sentence tweet?"

Koh said in her ruling last Thursday that the shortened schedule ordered by President Donald Trumpís administration likely would produce inaccurate results that would last a decade. She sided with civil rights groups and local governments that had sued the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Commerce, which oversees the statistical agency, arguing that minorities and others in hard-to-count communities would be missed if the counting ends this month.

During hearings, federal government attorneys argued that the head count needed to end Sept. 30 in order to meet a Dec. 31 deadline for handing in figures used for deciding how many congressional seats each state gets in a process known as apportionment.

2. Expand the Courts

With what is going on with this criminal regime, this does not surprise me. Which leads me to the next thought, expand all the courts and put judges that care about people. This go across all federal courts, not just SCOTUS.

15. I would think most of the census data has already been gathered.

They know all addresses that SHOULD respond. They know which addresses HAVE responded. It should be relatively easy to sort out the addresses that HAVEN'T responded, and get the info, once Biden is in. The respondents should be a lot more cooperative, at the point.

Hell, with one of those super powerful "executive presidential orders", Biden could fix it.

16. Well there you go.

The money the GOP saves here can be spent fixing something else that they broke.

12. Bill Bar ??

In any case, Barr needs to be impeached - now. Someone pointed out that this would also tie up the senate. Of course, they would most likely make it another quick sham trial.

So, Wilbur Ross is going to override a Judge's decision?
