DNC on SCOTUS Census Decision

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision granting the Trump administration’s emergency request to end U.S. Census counting early:

“This ruling is a threat to our democracy and a disgraceful attempt to silence marginalized communities. The Trump administration’s goals are simple: to strip states of their fair share of resources and representation and to disempower immigrants and voters of color. It’s long past time for Donald Trump and Republican leaders to stop using the census as a tool for political gain. On November 3, we must end the Trump era of corruption and craven opportunism. We must elect Democrats up and down the ballot across the country. Nothing less than the fate of our democracy is at stake.”
