NAACP files nonsense lawsuit against Trump census plans

The HillThe NAACP is suing President Trump and his administration for failing to take steps to fully count minorities during the upcoming 2020 census, saying that undercounting will cause minority communities to be underfunded. The lawsuit calls on the court to require that the Bureau of the Census "propose and implement, subject to this Court's approval and monitoring, a plan to ensure that hard-to-count populations will be actually enumerated in the decennial census."

So, in short, the NAACP has filed a lawsuit based on ... nothing. Speculation. Completly baseless hyperbole about minority populations being somehow "harder to count" and this translating, somehow, into direct harm that the courts should address... preemptively? By supervising the work of the census before any problems are identified or harm is done?

Any honest judge will toss this out of his courtroom for lack of standing.
