🔺THE SENSE BEHIND THE CENSUS . A federal judge ruled against the Trump administration adding a question pertaining to citizenship status to the 2020 US Census. The judge expressed, “...even though it wasn’t against the Constitution — it was unlawful for a multitude of independent reasons and must be set aside”. The administration was accused of an “egregious” violation of the Administrative Procedure Act, part of which requires all questions for the upcoming Census to be added no later than 3 years prior...which the administration did not do. Appeals are expected to make their way to the Supreme Court which demands a very quick ruling as the surveys are to be printed this summer. . Upon this ruling, reactions of those that oppose a citizenship question claim that such a question would reduce response rates from immigrants. More so, the ALCU applauded this ruling and stated “This ruling is a forceful rebuke of the Trump administration’s attempt to weaponize the census for an attack on immigrant communities”. . Republican support for this question was large considering the results of the US Census are vital to determining federal funding, electoral votes, and congressional seats. It is estimated that there are between 12.5 to 25 million people in the US illegally, thus prompting the question in mainstream news outlets and social media: 1) Should those unlawfully living in the US participate in the US Census? 2) Should the US Census collect citizenship status considering its implications for the country? .

@mcconnellpress @realdonaldtrump this is not okay. Because of the shut down that you refuse to end, elderly people in my district are sleeping out on the street tonight and have been for the past few days. This is because they live in government funded housing, and since the government is shut down, they aren’t receiving the money necessary to cover rent. Shame on all the politicians that care more about their political agenda than the well being of their citizens. I’m Representative Erik Gomez from Florida’s Kendall district, and I stand with my people. I will fight until the republicans help us stop the shutdown! Also you the people have the power to start the government again. Contact your local representative and demand that they help with reopening the government.
Deteriorating stone on the main entrance of Oak Hill Cemetery was recently replaced by Andy Seferlis. Originally from Seneca Quarry in Montgomery County, Maryland, this is the same sandstone that was used on numerous buildings around Washington DC including the @smithsonian castle and the McClellan Gate at @arlingtonnatl.

Preparation // . . You’d be amazed at how important systems can be when working on large projects. . . By attaching all of my threads to the outermost warps (threads running vertically), I’m able to complete a woven panel an hour faster than if I were picking up a thread and measuring it each time I wove a new layer/weft. . . Continuous motion is key, so the more I prepare up front, the better 🤓 . . Also, for the other weavers out there, this works best for me with the soumak technique ✨
