1) My background is math, and I used to build predictive statistical models. I want to throw up a ⚠️red flag⚠️about what the administration just proposed for a work-around of the #citizenshipquestion for #Census2020

First, this is what D.trUMP said today at the White House...
2) In a nutshell, they want to gather vast amounts of federal data so that they can determine (or in some cases, guess) whether someone is a US citizen or not

This federal data, once merged w/ the census data, would be a very powerful tool that could be weaponized, like in 2016
3) They're asking for data from "every department and agency in the federal government"

This includes:
INS
SSA
IRS
HHS
VA
DOJ
HUD
Dept of Education

The big questions are;
What data is "legally accessible"?
Will the federal agencies cooperate?

A thread with some thoughts on DOJ's letter in the #Census2020 case, which can be found (alongside some great analysis from @rickhasen) here.

electionlawblog.org/?p=106089
First, it's unsurprising for DOJ to assert that any "new" decision to add the Q must be assessed w/o reference to the history of the policy

As I noted at @ShallTakeCare, it's a standard, oft-repeated move in the Trump DOJ's 'animus-laundering' playbook

takecareblog.com/blog/thoughts-…
Indeed, amid debate over the #TransBan and #TravelBan, I wrote an op-ed for @PostOpinions in *March 2018* identifying this animus-laundering strategy and warning that we could expect to see a lot more of it

I hope everyone is paying more attention to the health of our democracy in this administration. Today's 2 decisions from the #SupremeCourt have one thing in common: the fight to erase minority communities' political power will continue.
In Dept of Commerce v NY, #SCOTUS kept the #citizenship question on #Census2020 barred, for now.

In Rucho v. Common Cause, SCOTUS threw up its hands and said it couldn't decide partisan gerrymandering cases - allowing the devious process to continue.
The Sec of Commerce (who heads @uscensusbureau) thought it was worth the risk to not count immigrants fearful of responding to a #censuscitizenship question.

The Court, of course, didn't think much of any of his stated justifications, finding them "contrived" and pretextual.

Barbara Underwood FTW!

It was such a privilege to get to play a small role in this case when I was at the NYAG’s office - and I’m in awe of the brilliant legal team that beat back this incredibly wrongheaded policy. #Census2020
Holy crap, the federal government is printing the #Census without the citizenship question. This is no longer a tentative win, it’s a full win. !!!
15 months ago, the NY AG’s office + partners filed suit against the Trump administration over its plan to demand citizenship status on the #Census2020. This @GettyImages pic was taken just before our presser announcing the suit.

And now it's over. Democracy won. How about that.

#BREAKING:
Supreme Court agrees with lower court decision in part about census citizenship question...The government explanation to put the question on the form was “INVALID”
The citizenship question can not stand as it was out now, giving the census bureau another chance to “rephrase” the Citizenship question, back to the 4th circuit court #CENSUS2020.

My non legal professor opinion, this will not make it to the 2020 census.
Basically: the citizenship question is blocked for now.

Head’s up. @SwingLeft is paying attention to #Census2020 and #Gerrymandering in terms of protecting our democracy. I like their strategy for the win. Here is their recent email, which they asked us to share liberally on social media. #Election2020 1/
The Trump administration has tried to sneak a question of citizenship status into the #2020census. Recently leaked documents from a GOP redistricting strategist revealed it was created specifically to exclude minority groups like Latinx from census participation—resulting in 2/
... inaccurate population counts that affect apportionment (how House seats are distributed) and federal funding for critical social services. If this happens, Republicans will have another baked-in electoral advantage—and communities of color will be underrepresented ...

According to Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross' own experts, the inclusion of the citizenship question will result in a loss of 6.5 million Americans from the census #Census2020
Why is the #Census2020 citizenship question so dangerous? According to a memorandum to Eric Holder from the Justice Department, under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, census information can be used for investigating non-U.S. persons. #Census2020
It goes beyond ICE. #KKKobach has been up front about why he wants the citizenship question on #Census202. In fact, they used it in court... They said, we need this question to enforce the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act.

Kris Kobach’s #Crosscheck voter purge program is inherently racist. Under the guise of catching so-called double voters, it crudely matches the first and last names of voters across states. kboo.fm/media/72437-gr… #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud
U.S. Census data shows that minorities are overrepresented in 85 of 100 of the most common last names. rollingstone.com/politics/polit…
And now #KrisKobach is trying to add a citizenship question to the US #Census2020 that could result in even more legal minority voters being illegally purged from the rolls and/or deterred from voting. gregpalast.com/kris-kobachs-b… #InterstateCrosscheck #Census #VoterSuppression

Barbara Underwood will get to argue #Census2020 before #SCOTUS after all. Can’t wait.
This case is so important, and would get so much more attention in normal times. Demanding citizenship status on the #Census would lead to major undercounts in immigrant-rich states like NY, jeopardizing billions in federal $ & fair representation in Congress & Electoral College.
Also, a reminder for the xenophobes: the U.S. Constitution (yes, that one) requires an “actual Enumeration” of all people living in the United States, whether they are citizens or not.

Nobody is talking about Census 2020 ! Why do you think Democrats are flooding the country with il / legals?!

From 2000 to 2010 there was a 43% increase in the Hispanic population. 137% from Central America alone.

Population determines Congressional seats. Wake TF up people!
Radical leftwing propaganda outlet Univision joins the lawsuit to stop us from asking the citizenship question in the upcoming census.

California and New York are fighting this the hardest. Why? Census decides Congressional seats and federal money.

The results of the Census are used to determine congressional representation for each state, as well as funding for a slew of federal programs.

DOJ has tried and failed 11 times to stay @NewYorkStateAG & co’s #Census2020 case (or parts of the case). This is now attempt #12.
@NewYorkStateAG Unreal: DOJ just filed a motion to stay our #Census2020 case w/ the 2nd Circuit -- before the district court could even rule on the motion they filed yesterday. As @NewYorkStateAG Underwood has said, DOJ continues to show a remarkable lack of respect for the judicial process.
Read our latest filing in @NewYorkStateAG & co’s #Census2020 suit - calling out DOJ for its astonishing TWELVE attempts to delay proceedings over the last 11 weeks. The record clearly shows that Ross’ decision to demand citizenship status is illegal. ag.ny.gov/sites/default/…

NEWS: #SCOTUS greenlights nearly all discovery in @NewYorkStateAG & co's #2020Census case, except for Sec. Ross deposition which remains on hold pending further briefing (despite an inaccurate AP story that he “can’t be questioned,” period).
DOJ just filed another motion with the district court to stay @NewYorkStateAG’s #2020Census case ahead of our Nov 5 trial. That’s right - after asking #SCOTUS to stay discovery and losing, they’re trying again with the district court. Seriously.
In our latest filing with the district court, @NewYorkStateAG notes that FOURTEEN judges have thus far rejected DOJ’s efforts to halt her #Census2020 suit.

“While there is no official figure, experts estimate that about half of all undocumented workers pay federal income taxes, if not more.”

In reality, the polar opposite is true. Federal government data shows that while roughly half of illegal immigrants file federal tax

As soon as I heard #Trump was adding the question about whether you have a non-citizen in your household to the #census I smelled #KKKobach... #census2020 via @Thom_Hartmann
They’re basically turning the #census into a giant caging operation to get rid of real citizen voters by asking if you have a non-citizen in your household. #Census #census2020
They want to scare people off from voting and they want to scare people off from filling out the census... #census2020 #Census
