Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Monday census counting will end next week on October 5, in defiance of a federal judge’s ruling last week which said census operations should carry on, as previously planned, through the end of October. The Trump administration last month moved forward the deadline by one month, to September 30. On Monday, the California judge overseeing the case said she was “disturbed” by Ross’s announcement and ordered the government to respond by today with its justification for shortening the census count.
