On January 15, 2019, in a case brought by other groups, U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman of the Southern District of New York ruled against the Trump administration’s plan to add a citizenship status question to the 2020 census, rejecting the administration’s transparent attempts to deceptively frame the question as a defense of voting rights. LDF’s separate lawsuit against the DOJ is still ongoing for their failure to disclose documents in response to requests that would provide more transparency around the attempt to add the citizenship question.
