Baltimore needs for the Supreme Court to uphold lower court rulings that would prevent a citizenship question on the 2020 Census as the city looks to immigrants to boost its years-long declining population.
A third federal judge has blocked the Trump administration from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census, ruling Friday that it poses a "substantial risk" of undercounting Hispanics and non-citizens.
Rep. Elijah Cummings says he has “very serious questions” about whether U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was truthful in explaining how the Trump administration developed a census question about citizenship status. Ross says he "testified truthfully to the best of my ability."
House Bill 463, sponsored by Anne Arundel County Republican Michael Malone seeks keep redistricting maps simple and counteract gerrymandering by requiring congressional districts to be compact and respect geographic boundaries and local city and county boundaries.
