Plus the Trump administration Up ended the census schedule earlier this year, Ultimately, by cutting short the time for counting and for running quality checks on the census results. And right now the major problem is the Census Bureau has found irregularities in the census records, and it needs more time to make sure no one is counted twice or in the wrong place. Especially in a year when so many people, including college students have moved around because of the pandemic. Mm hmm. So check for errors.

But career officials at the Census Bureau also have a duty to put out accurate and complete numbers because if they're not accurate and complete That could result in an unfair distribution of congressional seats and electoral college votes among the states for 10 years, and one main reason the bureau is in this very tight spot is because the Trump administration has been pressuring the beer to get numbers out before Trump's term ends. That could allow the president to try to exclude unauthorized immigrants from numbers that the 14th amendment says must include quote. The whole number of persons and each state. The federal government has never excluded unauthorized immigrants who live in United States from this process. But if Trump makes this unprecedented change I'm expecting a new flurry of lawsuits in 2021..

Census changes raise questions for states holding 2021 elections
"Judges in New York aggressively questioned the Trump Administration today about its plan to exclude undocumented immigrants from the final census tally used to determine congressional seats and much more.

A cities like Chicago and immigrant groups to NPR's Hansi Lo Wong covers the census and he listened to the virtual hearing. Nancy. Thank you so much for joining us this afternoon. Thank you for having me. Jamie, can you remind us first? What the president's July memorandum actually says it calls for an unprecedented change. Toothy apportionment count. This is the set of census numbers used to determine how many seats each state gets once every 10 years that redistribution of congressional seats. The Constitution. 14th amendment specifically calls for the whole number of persons in each state to be included in that count. Resident trumps memo that he put out in July calls for unauthorized immigrants to be excluded from that count, and it specifically directs the Commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, who oversees a Census Bureau to come up with information to provide to the president. That would allow the president to carry out that policy. Well, that gives us a bit of a sense of what went on in court today, but drill down on it a bit. What did each side argue? And how did the judges react? It was a fairly speedy hearing. But the main issue here the judges were trying to figure out how quickly and when. Exactly, they have to rule on this that the clock is really ticking. And these plaintiffs are arguing that they need a ruling as soon as possible because they say that this memo is already hurting ongoing census efforts and the trouble administrations attorneys with the Justice Department. They're arguing that The judges don't have to rush and that any decision should really wait until the president receives any information from the commerce secretary. But another part of the equation here is that the 2020 census forms have you taken a look at them? There's no question about a person's immigration status, so the Census Bureau has been collecting information for this year's count. Without knowing. What a person's immigration status is so judges were really pushing hard on the Justice Department attorney to explain Does this promise you should have a plan? Justice Barman said. No. Nothing definitive yet. There was really tough questioning, and it sounded like based on the questions that the judges were really skeptical of the Trump Administration's arguments. Well

twenty seven thousand people in the state public health workers are preparing to make a lot of phone calls that start like this I'm an official from the department of health I understand that you have

than ten million dollars to New York state's new contact tracing efforts if we don't start the context racing we're going to have to shelter in place for longer periods and I think that's something that most people are not wanting to do obviously and so the idea is to try to open as safely as possible and to do that officials with New York state's program say they need to call people who test positive for the corona virus if they can get tested as well as people with whom they are in close contact from two days before symptoms start to show and until the patient is isolated close contacts include anyone who for at least fifteen minutes was within six feet of a person who test positive if they've been in high risk locations like nursing homes or homeless shelters or other places where there's very high risk it allows public health to really zero in on those locations the key to contact racing is to collect information from people who may be infected as soon as possible it's especially important with a corona virus because some people who have it don't have symptoms your governor Andrew Cuomo says his state health department is trying to build up an army the he estimates so far is you need thirty contact races for every one hundred thousand people to start over the next few weeks hundreds of contact tracers with the state's program may be deployed to call around York

morning good morning okay so did that the Tesla factory re open yeah a lot of people showed up for work yesterday the parking lot was full and then CEO Elon musk confirmed on Twitter that production had resumed although the county had not approved yet he said quote I will be on the line with everyone else if anyone is arrested I ask that it only beat me and I should note here the county has not been going around arresting people for violating the shelter in place order attending out warnings and citations for the most part well what our government officials saying about what musk did well Alameda county officials say that they have notified Tesla it cannot operate like normal yet and they hope that that will do the trick with no further enforcement they also really emphasize that there's a process for re opening businesses make a safety plan that the county approves and it's not that they have denied Tesla's request to reopen their working on approving a plan that just needs to be submitted and then given the okay and then there's the governor got that California governor Gavin Newsom is said that manufacturing can resume in California but it's up to individual counties to make good decisions about how and when that happens exactly yesterday he was asked about this and he praised the line must but he was also evidently surprised to Tesla is back in operation my understanding is when I walked up to the podium today that wasn't the case he says he's respecting the rights of local health officials to make decisions for their communities and he expects Tesla to be approved to re open as little as a week I guess this dispute is maybe a little less than it seems it's just about the exact day in the exact motive the re opening but hasn't there been tension between Ilan mosque and health officials in California for some time yeah when the pandemic began Tesla initially stayed open in defiance of the same local health officials and in the weeks since he's started calling the shelter in place order an assault on freedom here he is on a call with investors last month the retention of the shop her place or write the alkaloids forcibly imprisoning people in their homes against over constitutional rights but my opinion and breaking people's freedoms and ways that are hard won and wrong Tesla has sued the county over this delay is the is the the company thinks of it and reopening and musk has also threatened to move the company out of California over this which would be a a fairly extreme decision he seems to be making fairness argument run on fairness arguments saying that only Tesla is still shut down even as its rivals get going yeah I mean at this point Tesla is the only major carmaker in California other carmakers are in other jurisdictions covered by the rules plants in the south are open already and like you mentioned Ford General Motors and fiat Chrysler are looking to restart this coming Monday and this is this was paused for a while in part because the state of Michigan needed to give that approval also note you know a lot of businesses have been devastated by this pandemic and a lot of business owners are very frustrated by shut downs but if you listen to the executives of other car companies they're talking a lot about safety measures to reopen and Ilan musk is really remarkable in this emphasis on anger at the government and public health officials thanks for the update thank you I'm gonna ask this.

"Correspondent Hansi lo **** who's based in New York and in pure science reporter Rebecca Hersher who's been reporting on the Alfredo Kansi Rebecca welcome to you both good to hear from you both thanks good evening Michelle our first question is from chef Jeremiah stone he co owns two restaurants in New York chef welcome my name's Cody anything I'm from South Pacific not that wasn't the chef chef right after my are you wearing hi are you good good well thanks for joining us well first of all can you just tell us a little bit about what you're up against during this pandemic yes so me and my partner have we on for businesses if the restaurants and then a wine shop with a partner Darryl on the Lower East Side neighborhood of New York City we we decided to close I think maybe two days before it was mandated from the exit restaurants to close and since then you know we have to lay off pretty much ninety five percent of our staff that's hard to do sorry about that and hello and I can actually hear it in your voice I know that's not easy to do because you know you work closely together and you care about the people do you have a question for us that we can answer yeah yes the the big question that that's on my mind and actually you know a lot of chefs and restaurant owners of the talking to is what the best you know thing to do in this in this time as I know like you know for us our restaurant is it's a bit of a of a luxury because it's it's a tasting menu and it's the higher price point but you know we've held off for about a little over a week on getting delivery and take out going and what kind of it would be really weighing the options between you know one of supplying our regular is the neighborhood people who who you know been coming the restaurants and and and have that services hospitality and generosity and also to keep our staff space and just kind of understanding you know are we doing the right we're we we put a bunch of steps in place and and precautions to make sure that you know the staff and south Korean team that you know they're all arriving in in private cars and and not taking public transit but you know just weighing between the two of you know trying to provide for potentially people's memories and well being versus other safety well thanks for the question chef and I'm going to ask our reporters to weigh in here and this has to be a question that's on the minds of it has to be what hundreds of thousands of people I mean restaurants are among the major small businesses in this country so Hansi Becky when you say yeah this is a very tough question facing a lot of new Yorkers right now especially because there is this executive order that your governor Cuomo signed and it's been in effect since Sunday night only restaurants the only restaurant that can stay open in the state are one seven declared essential and those are ones I do take out and delivery is which you know like for for businesses like Mr shows this is a very big change you know it's not clear how long this order will last how long other restaurants so we'll have to stay closer in this waiting period over the next three weeks in your cases of of covert nineteen could really peak the food situation it's really hard for business owners to plan in the long term and really think what's best for sustainability that could you have thought about the fact that some stones I have a question about whether take out moving to a takeout model is really a good idea yeah I think the issue is brought up are ones that I've heard a lot of restaurant owners concerned about I think he's right to really think about how his employees are getting to the restaurant whether he is asking them to put themselves at risk and if he is whether he has a good reason to do that and I think unfortunately there is there are no easy answers here I have talked to restaurant owners who have decided to close down entirely permanently because they can't switch over to a take out menu or they don't feel like they're in a position to see freedom calling on please right now there are others who have been able to do it and so I think I would I know it's a hard time but I would I applaud Mr stone for really thinking about these issues before he makes a decision I'm not sure that society but this we're in uncharted territory for all of us so you know thank you for calling and you know best of luck to you and we'll keep a part for you thanks so much traffic so let's answer some of your questions next we have Cody my name's Cody anything I'm from south bend Indiana and my question is why are we only seeing your numbers at work why are we not seeing the same jump in cases in other large cities the short answer is we don't know for sure but something to keep in mind is that testing right now for covert nineteenth is not uniformly available around the country and so it could be that because more testing is happening in New York we know about more cases in New York and no no then keep in mind about the numbers out of New York state about sixty percent of those numbers are coming specifically from New York City which is the most densely populated major U. S. city your twenty seven thousand people live per square mile in New York City and it's of course a major travel hub and new York's governor Andrew Cuomo is called New York you know Canary in a coal mine that this what's happening right now in New York is likely to repeat itself in other places and other seating you know California in other states and other cities coming up let's go to a question from a different part of the country this is Adam from New Orleans let's listen I was wondering where H. you mean that per capita numbers rather than raw numbers should be the most effective way to determine the impact of the fires on the community but is there a reason acts working in media look at raw numbers instead of per capita in the larger city like New York are sitting with a more normal infection rate going to spread the virus more than a smaller tourism center city with a higher infection rate like morons let's see who wants to answer that Becky Hans I'm not sure which he wants to aid them in their Michelle okay sounds yet I think it's really hard to compare infection rates right now in different parts of the country because again testing is not widespread enough but you're wrong numbers really do give us a sense of the scale and as we see numbers continue to climb here in New York no one then keep in mind that each new case may mean that hospitals need to prepare an extra bed or in extreme cases a ventilator and those are really really hot commodities right now there are not enough ventilators there are not enough beds and we're trying to track whether the you know the number of cases really match up with the resources that New.

Census Bureau: No Middle Eastern Or North African Check Box
"Here in this country the twenty twenty census is rolling out nationwide this week now for decades the U. S. government has categorized people with roots in the Middle East or in North Africa as white despite an ongoing push from some advocates that is not changing for this year's census we're bringing you an updated report about the controversial decision first may two years ago here's NPR's Hansi lo one this scene kabbadi left Yemen as a young girl with her family seventeen years ago and after they settled in New York City she noticed that when you fill out an official form here in the U. S. they're always seem to be a question about race and ethnicity everywhere you can see when you go to a doctor will schools you always get this option and but he said she wasn't sure which check boxes for her honestly it was hard for me to pick I was like oh my god what should I push I put Asian or the other about he says because Yemen is on the continent of Asia she settled on Asian and when she can on form she writes in Arab but she says on the twenty twenty senses she would have like to mark a box for middle eastern or north African it should be there because they had many nationalities so why is not there is unbelievable in twenty eighteen the U. S. census bureau decided against adding a middle eastern or north African category now because officials said they need to do more research that disappointed Mohammed Barakat he works at the Arab American family support center based in Brooklyn every member is grappling with the race question as a first grader my parents came from Palestine I didn't really know English and so whenever there is paperwork I had to do it and on one of those forms I remember seeing white and then in parentheses anyone from the Middle East or North Africa which are the regions along with Europe that the U. S. government defines as white the better catch was perplexed he went to school in acid teacher if you could answer Asian is like well if you want to put a single had reading you should polite and so I went around asking other teachers and they all set your white your what I like but look at me that I can't says he doesn't look white and he's culturally not white but sometimes he marks white if he sees the Middle East and North Africa listed next to it or he looks for a box for others so we can write in Arab this makeshift way of answering surveys means that information about people with roots in the Middle East or North Africa is often hidden within data about other groups the fight right now is to say the category should be there because it will arrive at a better account Maya berry is the executive director of the Arab American institute which is trying to get a category added to the twenty thirty census form it's an issue that touches on a sensitive topic especially after president trump's travel bans against countries such as Iran Libya Syria and Yemen federal law prohibits the census bureau from releasing census responses identifying individuals for seventy two years but many in the middle eastern or north African communities in the U.

Climate Change Threatens Alaska Census Count
"Now News. to Alaska where some communities are on the front lines of the impact of climate change warming temperatures and thawing. Permafrost are forcing some Alaskan native villagers to look for firmer ground on which to live. And that's also making it harder to get an accurate population. Count for the twenty twenty cents in parts of the state. NPR's Hansi Lawan has been traveling to some of these remote areas for this report once a decade the US government's largest peacetime mobilization officially begins with a trek to the most northern state in the Union Census Bureau officials crossed the Tundra of Southwest Alaska by Bush plane last month to reach the fishing shing village of took Sook Bae Ba.

Is You land on a strip of Ice Jessica Amazon she coordinates the bureau outreach to tribal governments in Alaska the airport terminal is essentially. It's not even building. It just hasn't mention their blocks the wind. And then you go go up to the actual village typically by snow machine after each villages counted census workers often hop back attack on a snow machine. Or if you're in the lower forty eight a snowmobile or sometimes into a dog sleigh to journey across miles of frozen ground and ice roads to reach the next village village temperatures in Alaska though have been heating up twice as fast as the global average making counting in some parts of the state more complicated we seen gene landmasses just disappear overnight and we're talking a big chunk Alan up twenty feet or so Romi caddy anti is a relocation coordinator for village northeast of took bay called new talk. Many residents. There have been forced out by erosion and rising waters that seep through floorboards and lead to black mold and homes. There are leaning telephone poles all over the village structures are beginning to fall from their foundation. Dacian the two thousand ten census counted just over three hundred fifty people. Living in new talk and the community has used that number to get its share of an estimated more than one and and a half trillion dollars a year in federal funding guided by Census Data Ba last fall a third of new talks residents relocated into new homes in mocked Avik. It's replacement village. That's on higher ground and this year. The Census Bureau is planning to count the community as to villages would separate population counts. So I asked Romi Taty Day. Hey what does that mean for. How much funding the community receives over the next decade? That's a very good question and a very scary question. There's gotta be a way Eh. For communities that spurious these kinds of threats to have additional funding in the transitionary period recent global warming and how slowed affect in coastal areas rivers and. It's not just one village in all the villages back in took set bank tribal administrative Robert. Pit Gus says. Climate change brings a particular challenge to Alaska native villages that rely on funding tied to their census numbers. What are you worried about about over the next ten years? I'm just worried that there may be lack of funding to fix all kinds of erosion occurring in many villages indescribable for Diana Turkic. It was partly forseeable. Turkic is the operations manager for the took base of regional clinic. And she's worried about the ice road. Other villages rely on to get to took suck base health clinic and research winters. It's sometimes been too warm to drive over a nearby river it hasn't frozen Over and it's made it more typical to get seen over here so they rely on. Claims Moore Turkic says the rising temperatures reminder of what you elders have long predicted and she wonders census workers who often have to use ice roads to get around may encounter a vastly different Alaska by the next count in twenty thirty. The way things are going. Maybe they won't maybe they will not have winter. That's like so many years from now and I just don't know Romi Cayenne Tei says in new talk. Many residents are not waiting to see what else climate change brings. There are so many people that are scared about the weather so a lot of people have been seeking shelter with their relatives all over the region. So you're GonNa see that census number drop a little bit ten years from now though. County wants to see new talks community reunited on solid ground in their new village of mocked Avik population. Three hundred fifty by the twenty thirty cents is he hopes or maybe even higher

"Surly as October NPR's Hansi. Lo Wong reports US district.

A census he has said the Justice department initiated the requests for the question to better enforce the Voting Rights Act, but internal emails released as part of the lawsuits show that Ross wanted to add the question soon after he took over the Commerce Department and Ross did show by overruling warnings about the question from the census bureau still judge Furman did note that the commerce secretary does have broad authority over the census.
