Trump moves to ban immigrants from being counted in 2020 census

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order, which will ban undocumented immigrants from being included in the 2020 census.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2019 that the Trump administration could not add citizen questions to the census.

This order could be significant because results are used to determine congressional delegations, and calculate local take of various federal funds.

It’s a rule that could have an impact on some city’s with high-density of immigrant populations, which would lose out on would-be funding.
