Internal Census Bureau Documents Obtained By House Oversight Committee : NPR

Documents obtained by the House Oversight and Reform Committee confirm the Census Bureau may not be able to release a key set of numbers from this year’s national head count until after the end of President Trump’s term.

The files, which the committee says it obtained from an unnamed source, suggest Trump’s unprecedented effort to exclude unauthorized immigrants from those numbers could be undermined by inconvenient timing regardless of how the Supreme Court rules in a case the justices heard this week over whether the administration can carry out a memo Trump issued earlier this year, as NPR and other news outlets have reported.

Three lower courts have already blocked Trump’s directive after finding it violated a federal law that calls for the counts used to reallocate votes in Congress and the Electoral College to be based on the “whole number of persons” in each state, as the Constitution also requires.
