A federal judge ruled late Friday she is unconvinced of an immediate need to block a citizenship question from the 2020 census over privacy concerns.US District Judge Dabney Friedrich declined to issue a preliminary injunction requested by a privacy and civil liberties nonprofit group, the Electronic Privacy Information Center.The group argued that the US Census Bureau was required to complete a privacy impact assessment before Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced the addition of the question.In response, the government acknowledged it is required to update its privacy impact assessments, but must do so before collecting census responses, rather than before deciding what questions would appear.
Of course, the Dems want to count every last person to maximize social program payouts and to maximize electoral clout, and doesn't want any pesky citizenship qualification.
And if successfully fought all the way to a major decision going the way of the voters, it would create a huge shift in politics in America. The emigrant-rich Bay Area would lose at least 8 congressional seats while Deplorable America would get those seats redistributed to them. And many big wigs in the DNC know this.
