WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday canceled arguments that had been scheduled for next month in an appeal by President Donald Trump’s administration relating to its contentious move to add a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. census.

The administration had challenged the scope of evidence that U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan could use in considering his decision in a lawsuit filed by 18 U.S. states, 15 cities and various civil rights groups challenging the legality of the citizenship question.

The article goes on to state the following:

The justices disclosed the cancellation of the Feb. 19 arguments in a notation on the court docket a day after the challengers, including New York state, filed court papers calling the administration’s appeal moot because Furman issued his final decision this week invalidating the census question.

“The briefing schedule is suspended pending further order of the court,” the justices said, according to The Washington Times.

    It should be decided by the SC and not a lower court. They are skirting their duty.

    Contest the legality of citizenship. You’re either a citizen or you’re not. These idiots don’t want anyone to know how many illegals are in this country. They should be e-verified to work in this country…e-verify and no government handouts. I predict the crime rate, murder, and burglaries will increase with this trash. They are easy prey for ISIS already biting at the bit to overtake our country.
    Do not let them in the country. We will be a third world country before the next decade or civil war will have begun by then.
