Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts on Thursday sided with the court’s four liberals in blocking, at least for now, the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census.

“Altogether, the evidence tells a story that does not match the explanation the Secretary gave for his decision,” Roberts wrote, citing what he called the administration’s “contrived” reasoning for attempting to add the question to the survey.

For conservative thinkers, operatives and TV stars around the net, the vote was tantamount to treason.
