3 monthes ago   |   By Fortune

Key U.S. Supreme Court justices seemed inclined to let the Trump administration add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census in a clash that will shape the allocation of congressional seats and federal dollars.

WASHINGTON - The Latest on Supreme Court arguments over the Trump administration's plan to ask about citizenship on the 2020 census :
