It’s good news the Supreme Court didn’t take the extraordinarily partisan step of reversing all three judges who found the Trump admin’s attempt to add a citizenship Q was BLATANTLY ILLEGAL.

Our democracy could be in full retreat this morning; instead it’s only stumbling…
…the Court kept the door open to adding the Q on the 2020 Census, just with a new non-pretextual rationale. But giving the admin more time to develop yet another pretext would be equally unjust. The admin already lied about its motivations. Nothing can change that.
And, minutes earlier, the Court greenlighted partisan gerrymandering. Such gerrymandering is wrong when Democrats do it, and wrong when Republicans do it. It will now occur on a scale like we’ve never seen and do lasting damage to vulnerable communities across the nation.
I hope Americans now redouble their efforts to reject partisan gerrymanders at the state level.

And, if the Supreme Court won’t recognize the constitutional principle of one person, one vote, Congress must take action.
