A frivolous lawsuit against Trump's census question

Editors, Washington Examiner

The census asks all kinds of other questions (about race, for example) that have nothing to do with enumeration of the population. The long form of the census asks even more intrusive questions. This has been accepted practice since the nation's founding. So as long as an "actual enumeration" is also taken and used to apportion House seats, the citizenship question doesn't appear to pose any constitutional problems.
