President Trump today vowed to try delaying the 2020 census after the Supreme Court blocked his administration's plan to include a question that inquires about citizenship status, Fox News reports. The court had said that the administration's explanation for adding the question was insufficient and sent it back to the lower courts for further consideration. The 5-4 ruling, authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, said that the court was presented "with an explanation for agency action that is incongruent with what the record reveals about the agency’s priorities and decision making process."
