The US census returned to the Supreme Court on Monday, as so-called “conservatives” sought to radically change 200 years of politics and exclude undocumented migrants from the official census used to distribute representation in Congress.
The results would be dramatic: States with many “illegal aliens” including California, Florida, Texas and New York would lose their representation. States with fewer undocumented immigrants, who happen to be older and whiter, would benefit. Indeed, we learned in a shocking 2019 memo from late Republican agent Thomas Hofeller that the whole idea of this change was to benefit “non-Hispanic whites.”
Based on Monday’s oral arguments in the case, Trump vs. New York, it seems almost certain that the Court’s 6-3 Tory majority will give Donald Trump a temporary victory – signaling Twitter’s exclamation marks – but, in the end, another defeat. Or, as Trump would say, Awesome! then Sad!
