The 2020 Census Citizen Status Question...
Is it to early to post to the Off Topics/ Politics section?

Does everyone understand the importance of the legal battle going on the 2020 Census citizenship question?

The US Constitution establishes the need for a census. Every 10 years we count the population of America. Based on that count, seats in the House of Representative are portioned out. There are 435 seat in the House of Representative and the more people a state has, the more seats in congress it gets. For the next 10 years the number of seats in the House will be established by the upcoming Census.

Furthermore, Electoral votes for National elections are proportioned out based on the combined seats a state holds in Congress. That is, Electoral Votes are the sum of a state's Representatives and Senators.

Notice that there is no requirement to count only Americans.

Years ago we made and effort to count "Legal" residents in a Census. We made an effort to count American Citizens when conducting a Census. Some time ago we stopped asking if the people being counted were actually Americans. In effect we began to let Illegal Immigrants influence the politics of our legislate branch for the following decade.

There has been a huge amount of press concerning "Russian Influencing" in 2016 election. It appears they might have taken out advertising on FaceBook in an effort to influence the election. What seems shockingly missing in our daily discussions is the importance of the accuracy of the upcoming Census. My impression is that the census count is hardly monitored and has built in institutionalized inaccuracies that effect the very core of the American Legislative Branch - as well as Presidential Election. Russian advertising doesn't come anywhere close to the decades long impact errors in a Census caries.

Here are screenshots from the front page of yesterday's paper. If it wasn't so important it'd be as entertaining as the front page of the National Enquirer. Is there an American alive that doesn't see the "spin" in the main stream media? Notice the pictures of the POTUS they choose to include.

Fox News: "We are not backing down. Trump announces executive order aiming to obtain accurate count of citizens in the US."

USA Today: "Trump drops fight for census citizenship question."

Mark Ryder I am sure that the vast majority of the voting public see through the BS.
I hope you're right, but... I think the voting public either has their head buried in the sand, or only sees what they want to see.

My guess is that far and away most voters are naive to what is being discussed or, only see the issue from the perspective that best suits views they already hold. That is, if they hate Trump, they believe the Census Citizenship question is solely to intimidate and suppress a Hispanic minority. If you are in the "Make America Great Again" camp, you see the question as a necessity to ensure the sovereignty of our country.

The above seems like a reasonable review of where the topic stand - at this moment. I'm sure there will be more lawsuits.
