Census count is ending early. What that means for California and other states with many immigrants

Thursday, October 15, 2020

The Census ends in the early hours of Friday morning — midnight Hawaii time. The Supreme Court earlier this week allowed the Trump administration to cut the Census count short by about two weeks. The justices gave no explanation for the decision. Justice Sonya Sotomayor dissented.

It’s a big win for the Trump administration. It argued the deadline needed to be moved up to give Census officials enough time to process the data before the end of the year.
