Supreme Court rebuffs Louisiana’s 2010 Census Suit

Louisiana sued the Census Bureau for counting all residents in the 2010 Census. Louisiana (and others) wanted the Census Bureau to exclude non-citizens from the apportionment count. [See background materials.]

The Supreme Court was not swayed, although it is likely that this argument will be resurrected in 2020. Or to quote the Groening article “Mehlman says it is really not too early to amend the process for the 2020 census.”
