“Judge Wants To Know By Monday If Gov’t Will Fold On Census Citizenship Fight”


If the Trump administration does not want another round of discovery into whether its census citizenship question was discriminatory, it has until Monday to tell the judge who is currently considering the claim that it is backing down from trying to add the question.

That is according to Denise Hulett, a lawyer for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, who was on teleconference hearing that U.S. District Judge George Hazel held Thursday afternoon with the parties in the census citizenship case in Maryland. A second source with knowledge of the call also gave TPM that read out.
