The Court of Appeals found in its decision that throughout American history "included the numbers used to determine the division of Congress – in the language of the current statutes, the" total population "and the" total number of persons "in each state – any person who who was resident in the United States at the time of the census, whether a citizen or non-citizen, or whether she resides here with or without legal status. "
The Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments on November 30th.
