The U.S. Census Bureau announced on Monday they will be including a question to the 2020 census that asks if the taker is a U.S. citizen. The decision caused at least 12 states to sue in order to stop it from being implemented. Individuals opposing the addition argue that it will deter immigrants from participating, which will skew the results. The Constitution requires all residents to be counted regardless of citizenship status. New York state attorney general Eric T. Schneiderman is leading a multi state lawsuit to stop the move. Officials in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Washington plan to follow suit. California filed a separate lawsuit Monday night. ___ Census results are used to determine political boundaries, as well as school boards and House seats. The census also decides where federal grants and subsidies are allocated. Attorney Schneiderman says that the change “will create an environment of fear and distrust in immigrant communities that would make impossible both an accurate census and the fair distribution of federal tax dollars.” ___ Photo: Jason E.

Community, Love, and Memes: Bakers Lose Appeal; Ordered To Pay 6- Figures For Refusing To Make Wedding Cake For Same-Sex Couple @balleralert SWeet Bakers Lose Appeal; Ordered To Pay 6-Figures For Refusing To Make Wedding Cake For Same-Sex Couple –blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, a judge ruled against two Christian bakers who refused service for a same-sex couple. Now, according to NBC News, the owners of the now-closed Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery will have to fork over a $135,000 fine for their discrimination. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident occurred back in 2013 when Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of the Oregon bakery, refused to make a wedding cake for Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer. At the time, the Kleins said their religious beliefs wouldn’t allow them to provide a service for the same-sex couple. However, according to NBC News, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries said that their refusal violated a 2007 state law that protects the rights of the LGBTQ community. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Years later, the couple filed a suit against the bakers for their refusal of service, demanding money for their emotional distress. At the time, a judge ruled in favor of the couple, ordering the bakers to cough up the damages. However, the Kleins appealed in March of this year. But, on Thursday, nearly five years after the start of the case, the Oregon Court of Appeals denied the bakers’ claim and upheld the 6-figure fine against them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It does not matter how you were born or who you love,” the couple said in a statement after the ruling. “All of us are equal under the law and should be treated equally. Oregon will not allow ‘a Straight Couples Only’ sign to be hung in bakeries or other stores."
