    The key is twofold: first, the census is established by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution–it's an activity assigned to the legislative branch, not the executive; and two, while Congress has chosen to delegate that responsibility to a Director of the Census whom they placed within the Commerce Department, that official acts at the behest of Congress, not of the executive branch. As such, the Secretary of Commerce doesn't even report the findings of the census to the President, but rather is responsible to “publish” them.

    What Barack Obama is trying to do here is in clear violation of federal law–and you'd have a pretty strong case that it's an unconstitutional power grab, to boot.
