close tovideo Supreme court hears arguments on whether or not Trump is the management to ask about the citizenship on the 2020 census

Fox News senior judicial analyst judge Andrew Napolitano said that as it stands, the only information that needs to be disclosed, for the census, the number of people living in a residence.

Fox News senior judicial analyst judge Andrew Napolitano said on Tuesday that looks like it, the only information that needs to be disclosed, for the census, the number of people living in a residence.

Napolitano appeared on “Fox & Friends” on the same day the Supreme court arguments on the question of whether the census 2020 was to be heard, a question about citizenship, whereby a quick review of a lower court do the decision that blocked the trump administration.

“The government seeks to acquire information about said where people live, and to live where the people are not allowed here, because this has a profound effect on Federal aid to cities, and has a profound effect on the members of the Congress,” Napolitano.

TO DECIDE SUPREME COURT, IF THE CITIZENSHIP QUESTION CAN BE INCLUDED IN THE 2020 CENSUS

After hearing arguments, the high court of a decision by the end of June is expected to announce.

Judges were scheduled to hear the case on Feb. 19, but in January, a judge suspended oral arguments on the plan, add a citizenship question to the census in the next year. The judge put the matter on hold, after a federal district court judge, could not approach the government with its plans.

The Trump-administration, if, then it was directly to the Supreme court to overrule the Federal court judge said in a court is of the opinion that such a question would dramatically reduce the response rate—and Congress-representation—non-citizens.

Napolitano said he doesn’t know to go which way to the Supreme court, however, offered some insight as to what information must be provided, as it is currently.

“Now, what many people do not know is that the population consists of everyone who lives here, legally or illegally. And, the number, the base number also affects the amount of money that the Federal government gives certain places, depending on a variety of formulas. So the argument for this is that the more the government knows, the more fair it can be in the distribution of assets and the determination of how many members of Congress,” said Napolitano.

“The other argument is that people are afraid to answer truthfully, because if you are here illegal you think it is your detention or deportation.”

He added, “If the census people come knocking on your door and say” What is your nationality?’ You have to answer to? You are going not to like what I’m about to tell you, the answer is no.”

He went on to explain, the only question to be answered is, “How many people live there? You have to answer.”

Napolitano added, “you can think of asking any question you want, and most of the people, because the government questions I need to answer. But the only question you are required to answer, is the number of people living there.”
