The Supreme Court will take up President Donald Trump’s charge to exclude illegal immigrants from the 2020 census, which will be used to restructure congressional districts next year.
Politico reported the court will hear arguments on Nov. 30 regarding the exclusion of those who are in the country unlawfully with regard to determining each state’s share of the 435 House seats.
The Census ended its counting of the population just this past week and will deliver its results to Trump by the end of the year.
But the president has argued that by counting illegal immigrants as part of the population, states which refuse to enforce immigration laws are rewarded by disproportionate representation in Congress.
Trump ordered a change to existing procedure in July, but his directive was defeated last month by a lower court, which concluded the president’s order was not a lawful change.
