California is suing the Trump administration over the Commerce Department's decision to add a question regarding citizenship to the 2020 Census, reports The Washington Post. The suit claims that the question was unconstitutional because the Constitution requires an "actual Enumeration" of every person living in the United States — and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said the question will prevent that from occurring by suppressing non-citizen responses.

Why it matters: If non-citizens choose not to respond to the census as a result of the question, that could affect the apportionment of seats in the House of Representatives — and because immigrant-heavy states tend to lean blue, it would likely mean the loss of Democratic seats.

The draconian security law that Beijing forced upon Hong Kong last week contains an article making it illegal for anyone in the world to promote democratic reform for Hong Kong.

Why it matters: China has long sought to crush organized dissent abroad through quiet threats and coercion. Now it has codified that practice into law — potentially forcing people and companies around the world to choose between speaking freely and ever stepping foot in Hong Kong again.
