NEW YORK – A U.S. District Court Judge in New York has set a hearing for July 23 to hear arguments on stopping the Trump Administration from amending the 2020 Census.

The judge will hear from the ACLU, NYCLU and the New York State Attorney General’s Office.

The ACLU said in a statement, “The Trump Administration has now changed their tune because the Supreme Court ruled against them. They can’t have it both ways.”

This is separate from the Maryland case in which lawyers for the Department of Justice told a Federal Judge Friday that the Trump Administration will continue to explore options of adding a citizenship question to the 2020 Census.

There was but no mention of a potential executive order being considered by the White House.
