DNC on Court Ruling Against Citizenship Census Question

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after a U.S. District Court judge ordered the Trump Administration to remove a question about citizenship from the 2020 census:


“Donald Trump needs to stop using the census as a political tool to disempower Latinos and communities of color. This ruling is a victory for our democracy and our values of equality and opportunity for all. Nobody is fooled by this administration’s attempt to intimidate and undercount immigrant communities, or take away states’ fair share of resources and representation. And Democrats will continue to fight Trump and the Republican Party’s transparent attack on our Constitution.”
