The Supreme Court is taking up the administration’s case against counting illegal immigrants in the 2020 census.  It is one more effort by Trump and the Republicans to influence apportionment of House seats, and it is not clear which way the court will lean.  The language of the Constitution does not say to count them. “…the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.”  But the Census has counted everyone all the way along.  The administration’s contention is suspect PR and naked politics.  One would hope for better but Trump has kicked at nearly every limit to his authority and power and gotten away with it.  Republican lawmakers were supine and impeachment went nowhere.  One can hope we have seen the last of Trump after the inauguration, but he still has 70+ million followers in the country.  That’s a large minority, ready to support him again in four years.
