Purely political. Considering it's Constitutional, and because of setbacks from COVID, the Census count should continue at least through the end of 2020.

The Census was intended to be insulated from politics, since it's so important for proper governance.

No surprise the GOP politicized it for partisan gain.

It's party over country with the GOP, every time.

Congress needs to overrule this latest attempt at undermining our democracy.

Whatch the endless line of republicans showing up to condemn Trump for politicizing the census so he can screw states with high illegal populations.

I wonder if that's why he continued full funding for the Florida and Texas National guards while cutting everyone else by 25%... both states will be hurt by Trumps shenanigans and if he loses either he is toast.
