Supreme Court Dismisses Case Challenging Trump’s Census Plan

The Supreme Court has dismissed a case regarding President Donald Trump’s plan to exclude people living in the country illegally from the Census and declined to give a ruling.

The Supreme Court has dismissed a case regarding President Donald Trump’s plan to exclude people living in the country illegally from the Census and declined to give a ruling.  

The case ended with a 6-3 vote and deemed as “riddled with contingencies and speculation that impede judicial review.”

Associate justices Stephen G. Breyer,  Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan were the ones who dissented. 

“At the end of the day, the standing and ripeness inquiries both lead to the conclusion that judicial resolution of this case is premature,” said the justices in the opinion.

The Supreme Court added that it was too soon to rule on the legality of Trump’s plan because it’s not yet clear how many people he would seek to exclude and whether the division of House seats would be affected.
