This is going to make sanctuary cities and states plenty mad. Non citizens will not be used for determining which states lose or pick up House seats after the 2020 census.
The illegals were counted in 2010 but will not in 2020. Federal grants are at stake also. They won’t lose the grants but thy will be lower to reflect the new the new way the counting will be done.
New York is already to lose one House seat. (AOC’s?) With the new count, they could lose 1 or 2 more. California and Minnesota could also lose seats. It could change the electoral college as conservative states such as Florida and Texas pick up more seats.
A federal judge ruled on Friday the US government can include citizenship question on the US Census.
It makes complete sense so Democrats are against it.

A federal judge ruled late Friday she is unconvinced of an immediate need to block a citizenship question from the 2020 census over privacy concerns.
US District Judge Dabney Friedrich declined to issue a preliminary injunction requested by a privacy and civil liberties nonprofit group, the Electronic Privacy Information Center.
The group argued that the US Census Bureau was required to complete a privacy impact assessment before Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced the addition of the question.
In response, the government acknowledged it is required to update its privacy impact assessments, but must do so before collecting census responses, rather than before deciding what questions would appear.
