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.

President Trump Prepares Afghanistan Peace Deal To End America’s Longest War
It’s about time.
President Donald Trump is preparing a monumental peace deal with the Afghan Taliban to withdraw thousands of U.S service members from Afghanistan and start winding down America’s lengthiest war.
The President is dispatching Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to attend the signing of the peace deal in Qatar. The White House published a statement on the upcoming peace deal Friday, emphasizing the need to finally end the seemingly endless Afghan War.
The statement emphasizes President Trump’s campaign promise during 2016 to pursue a final end to the ceaseless, never-ending conflict.
Senior military and state department officials had met with representatives of the Taliban on Thursday night. The Taliban has been negotiating with the United States and the Afghan government on and off for months now.
Leaked documents have revealed a legacy of corruption and waste surrounding the U.S presence in Afghanistan.
The US-Taliban peace deal with reduce the amount of American service members present within the country from around 13,000 to 8,600. The burden of securing Taliban-dominated Afghan provinces will now be further shifted upon the Afghan government, a largely corrupt entity that has largely failed to provide a lasting and meaningful governmental alternative to the Islamist organization.
The Taliban has agreed never again to host extremist organizations such as al-Qaeda or ISIS in Afghanistan that plot attacks on the United States from the nation. The signing of the deal in Qatar has been preceded by a seven-day limited ceasefire, which the militant group had to obey in order for American authorities to sign the deal.
Some hawkish Senators and congressmen have openly called for limitless and infinite American military presence in the troubled Central Asian country.
