CA Judges Seek to Block Trump on Census 10-22-20 15:48 DC

Three California federal judges today (Thursday) joined in blocking President Trump's executive order excluding people in the U.S. illegally from being counted in this year’s census. The matter is already before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The federal judges issued a permanent injunction against the president's July order, saying it violates the U.S. Constitution, the federal Census Act and the separation of powers between the federal and state governments.

According to the Pew Research Center, California would lose a congressional seat if the president’s order stands. Pew estimates that 2.2 million of California’s nearly 40 million residents are in the country illegally, the most of any state.
