9. What is a states representation in the house of representatives based on?

It is based upon the percentage of population it has relative to the entire United States. This is roughly about 1 representative for each 360,000 people. So a state with 400,000 people would get one representative, a state with 3 1/2 million would get about 10, and so on. Each ten years that the census shows how many people are in each state, a state can gain or lose representatives.

The more illegals counted in a census, the more Democratic Representatives in the Congress...

14. Legal guest workers or other resident aliens who don't desire US citizenship for whatever reason.

I used to work at a hotel, one of the Asst. Managers was a "permanent" resident alien for lack of a better term. Owned a home, worked, paid taxes etc but didn't want to renounce his British citizenship. If his name came up, he'd be counted as part of the population for the state.

7. As she should have

There is nothing in the constitution that prevents having that question on the census.

There is also precedent for having that question on the census. Anyone who has ever traced their family tree on websites such as Ancestry have seen this same question on census forms.

11. WTH is going on?

Here's an article from the Washington Times saying a federal judge blocked the question. About a month earlier.

BTW, the NYT, WAPO, and Examiner all have similar stories.

13. It's not uncommon for a question to come before separate courts.

SCOTUS relies on lower court decisions to inform its ruling. If lower courts are in consensus it simplifies their work. Some times they won't even hear a case, allowing the lower rulings to stand

Split decisions pretty much guarantee the SCOTUS has to step in to break the tie.
