Attorney General William Barr said on Monday that the Trump administration can add the citizenship question to the census for 2020 and will be proceeding as such, despite the Supreme Court ruling last month.
“I agree with him that the Supreme Court decision was wrong,” Barr said in an interview with the Associated Press.
He added that there is “an opportunity potentially to cure the lack of clarity that was the problem and we might as well take a shot at doing that.”
Last month’s SCOTUS ruling was primarily centered around the administration’s justification of adding the citizenship to the census, which was to properly enforce the Voting Rights Act. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the liberal court members in saying their rationale “seems to have been contrived.”
Barr will be tasked in coming up with a new reasoning to add citizenship to the census, and the Justice Department has shaken up their legal team to ready themselves for the next battle.
“Since these cases began, the lawyers representing the United States in these cases have given countless hours to defending the Commerce Department and have consistently demonstrated the highest professionalism, integrity and skill inside and outside the courtroom,” department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said in a statement.
Although it was widely reported that President Trump would give up on the census question after the SCOTUS ruling, he quickly went onto Twitter to denounce those reports as fake news.
The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect or, to state it differently, FAKE! We are absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.

So important for our Country that the very simple and basic “Are you a Citizen of the United States?” question be allowed to be asked in the 2020 Census. Department of Commerce and the Department of Justice are working very hard on this, even on the 4th of July!

Trump has proven those mainstream reports as fake, and will be moving forward with his efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Recent opinion polls have shown that the public is firmly on his side when it comes to this decision.

Barr refused to give any specific details about his strategy in how the censorship question will be added to the 2020 census in the interview, but is expected to move forward on a new strategy in the upcoming weeks.
Petition for Seattle Mayor’s Recall Election Approved by King County Judge
The mayor stood by as anarchists seceded from the United States.
A petition campaign to bring about a recall election targeting Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan was approved by a King County Judge on Sunday, potentially setting up Durkan’s removal from office. The liberal mayor has lost the confidence of many of the city’s residents, including liberals, after largely refusing to enforce the rule of law and the territorial integrity of the United States.
Durkan consistently refused to break up the dangerous Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist territory after its adherents declared their independence from the United States, responding to the presence of the rebel group with little more than smug potshots at President Donald Trump. Durkan only finally broke up the CHAZ after multiple murders within the commune’s borders, senseless killings by the territory’s armed ‘security’ that could’ve been avoided through putting down the secessionist project.
However, it appears that the recall petition actually opposes Durkan for opposing the activities of the CHAZ, claiming that Durkan was restricting protected political activity within the confines of the commune. The petition accuses Durkan of “endanger(ing) the peace and safety of the community” by allowing the police to “leak false information about fabricated crimes and threats to the media.” The recall also cites a curfew implemented upon the City of Seattle after the anarchists set up their autonomous commune.
Petitioners will need to collect 50,000 signatures in order to bring about the recall election, which is relatively unprecedented in the history of Seattle. It’s quite likely that a sizable population of Seattle residents opposed to the lawless and violent activities of the anarchists will support the recall, an irony considering that its organizers oppose the mayor for refusing to grant the street criminals special privileges.
