Here we go.

According to CNN, the “Supreme Court agrees to take up 2020 census case.”

“The Supreme Court said that it would take up a case this term to decide whether the Trump administration can add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.”

In other news, in the @ theNewsBlender story Thursday, “a motion was filed on Monday by attorneys for the National Butterfly Center located in Mission, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley with the US District Court for DC asking a judge to issue a restraining order against the Trump administration.”

Courthouse News reported on Friday that Texas Butterfly Sanctuary Loses Challenge to Border Wall.

Coinciding with drastic measures by the White House to build a wall on the southern border, a federal judge threw out a court challenge by a butterfly-conservation center whose 100-acre facility on the Rio Grande in South Texas stands in the way.

“Unfortunately for the plaintiff, the Fourth Amendment offers little refuge for unenclosed land near one of the countries’ external borders,” U.S. District Judge Richard Leon wrote Thursday, dismissing the suit by the North American Butterfly Association.
