Not all justices revealed how they voted on the case, but Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito Jr. and Neil Gorsuch each said they would have delayed the trial.

Solicitor General Noel Francisco said proceeding to trial will "unavoidably distract the government, including the Commerce Department, from the energetic performance of its constitutional duties."The challengers are seeking to question Ross and Gore about how the decision to add a citizenship question was made and who was involved in the decision making process.They argue the question will scare people in immigrant communities away from responding, skewing an accurate population count. We welcome the Supreme Court's decision and look forward to making our case in court as we fight for a full and fair census", Spitalnick said".

"The addition of the citizenship question is a naked act of intentional discrimination directed at immigrant communities of color that is meant to punish their presence, avoid their recognition, stunt their growing political power, and deprive them and the communities in which they live of economic benefits", the challengers wrote in court papers.

This represents the latest of a string of losses for the Trump Administration on this issue.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has denied the Department of Commerce's request for a stay in the 2020 census question case.

Blizzard Pulled Diablo 4 Announcement From BlizzCon
The reveal of a mobile game rather than a full-on Diablo 4 led to a " huge backlash " at what is traditionally a two-day celebration of all things Blizzard.

"You really have to wonder what they're trying to hide".

Chief Justice John Roberts on October 19 had temporarily put the case on hold while the court as a whole decided how to proceed. The first, spearheaded by Democratic officials, was brought by 18 states as well as a number of cities and counties. At the time, Ross said the Justice Department requested the change in part because the information would be useful for its enforcement of the Voting Rights Act.

The question hasn't been asked of all recipients to the Census since 1950.

Manhattan U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman ruled in July that the plaintiffs "plausibly allege" that Ross's decision was motivated by discrimination.

The U.S. Constitution mandates a census every 10 years.
