President Trump's national emergency likely won't stop you from buying a Huawei phone, much less an iPhone. Here's what it means for you.

President Trump's declaration of a national emergency and executive order banning tech products made by US adversaries isn't likely to affect consumers here anytime soon. Although the order is broad, it's widely expected to be used to target China and Chinese equipment maker Huawei. It likely will be applied to equipment purchased by telecommunications companies, not consumer products and almost certainly won't be applied to iPhones or other goods made in China for US firms. It's unclear exact...

Steve Daines (R-MT), the sponsor, said in a statement announcing the bill. “We are a sovereign nation. It’s absurd that we don’t know how many citizens and non-citizens are living in this country. That’s why I’m introducing this bill to require a citizenship question on the census.” The Trump administration has already sought to add the questi...

Friday round-up

At The Economist, Steven Mazie discusses Tuesday’s oral argument in Department of Commerce v. New York, a challenge to the Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross’ decision to add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census, concluding that “the five conservatives have a clear—if fraught—path to approving the question[:] The justices can simply defer to the official, brushing aside evidence about his motives.” At The Progressive, Bill Blum writes that “[t]he Supreme Court appears poised to hand Do...

Census Sensibility: The narrowest, and simplest, way for the Court to resolve the census/citizenship case

The Supreme Court heard argument yesterday in No. 18-966, Department of Commerce v. New York, a case challenging Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross's decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census form.  Ross explained that he added the question, notwithstanding the fact that it would depress the response rate on the census, in order to provide the Department of Justice with more complete data to aid its enforcement of Second 2 of the the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (even though, as everyon...

A “view” from the courtroom: Counting to five

Today is the oral argument in one of the term’s biggest cases, Department of Commerce v. New York, about the Trump administration’s efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. It is also a rare day for afternoon arguments, and rarer still because there will be two of those. Solicitor General Noel G.

Conservative Justices Seem Inclined To Keep Citizenship Question On Census

With so much at stake — the apportionment of political power nationwide, the adequate representation of immigrant communities, the scope of executive power —the Supreme Court arguments Tuesday over whether the Trump administration could add a citizenship question to the 2020 census wound up being highly technical. The much-anticipated hearing included ample discussion of phrases like “comparative errors,” “maximal need,” and “credible quantitative evidence.” What was not evident was any un...

Justice Neil Gorsuch can’t wait to let states exclude noncitizens from redistricting. Multiple times during Tuesday’s hearing on the Trump administration’s move to add a citizenship question to the census, Gorsuch returned to vague allusions to an unsuccessful 2016 Supreme Court case that dealt with that possibility. Gorsuch’s lines of inquiry didn’t get too much traction at Tuesday’s arguments, which mostly focused on the technical considerations of Secretary Wilbur Ross’ decision to include...

Supreme Court hears arguments over citizenship question on census

By MARK SHERMAN WASHINGTON — Conservative Supreme Court justices were mostly silent Tuesday as a Trump administration lawyer defended the government’s plan to ask about citizenship on the 2020 census , an indication the court’s majority may be inclined to side with the administration. Critics say adding the question would discourage many immigrants from being counted, leading to an inaccurate count, and liberal justices peppered the administration’s top Supreme Court lawyer with questions as the...
