Later today, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in two cases implicating immigration and immigrants. SCOTUSBlog collects some links to previews of the arguments in the cases.
The justices will hear 80 minutes of argument in Department of Commerce v. New York, a challenge to the Trump administration’s decision to add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census.
The final argument of the day is in Rehaif v. United States, in which the court will consider whether, to convict defendant in U.S. illegally for violating a federal gun-possession law, prosecutors must show that defendant knew he was in the country illegally.
UPDATE (2:00 PST): Here is Amy Howe's recap of the arguments in the Census 2020 case.
