While the Courtâ€™s decision is pending, former AG Eric Holder seems to recognize the gravity of the situation (for Democrats anyway):
These are the stakes. The citizenship question should not be on the 2020 Census â€“ make the process accurate and fair. This IS a very big deal. https://t.co/QJxXz8lMQU

Is it as big of a deal as a U.S. Attorney General getting found in contempt of Congress? Probably much bigger as far as Holderâ€™s concerned.
How can Census "process" be accurate and fair withOUT the citizenship question?
