SCOTUS said the Trump administration’s explanation for wanting to add the question was “more of a distraction” than an explanation. The administration had cited the need to improve enforcement of the Voting Rights Act.

We get reactions from local census outreach groups about what this decision will mean for their efforts going forward.
