The Supreme Court agreed to decide whether the Trump administration could add citizenship to the census by 2020. The decision gives the administration a request for the immediate review of the decision of the lower court, which has stopped the plans for this issue. The hearing is expected to take place in April.

The question asks: "Is this person a citizen of the United States?"

Trump Administration enters into a lawsuit with dozens of states, cities and other groups that do not want the question to appear on forms of constitutional status of the head of every person living in the United States

The Census Bureau did not address all of households on the status of US citizenship for almost 70 years, although households have a question of citizenship regarding a smaller survey of the Census Bureau, which is now known as a poll of the American community

Referring to the study of the Bureau the population register, the groups that filed a complaint, claim that the question about the status of citizenship suppresses the participation of the census among households with non-citizens. This could lead to a lack of immigrants and color communities, which will have serious consequences on how political power and federal funding will be distributed over the next decade. There is increasing pressure to resolve all these disputes by June, so that the printing of paper questionnaires for the census may continue as planned.

Counting population from the census determines the number of seats in the Congress and the votes of the electoral college that each state receives. They also target the distribution of approximately $ 880 billion a year in federal dollars and local communities for Medicare, schools and other public services.

The decision of the Supreme Court came a month after the American district judge Jesse Furman of New York ordered the administration to stop its plans to include the issue in question. Furman's decision on two main lawsuits in Manhattan was the first decision of the great court of seven lawsuits, with the decision of the Trump administration to add the issue of citizenship to the census.
