DNC on Trump Order Excluding Undocumented Immigrants from Congressional Apportionment

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Donald Trump issued a memorandum excluding undocumented immigrants from being counted when U.S. congressional districts are next redrawn: 

“There is no end to Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda. First, he tried to put a citizenship question on the census but got blocked by the Supreme Court. Now he’s back at it with an unconstitutional order that has no purpose other than to silence and disempower Latino voices and communities of color. Trump wants to strip these communities of their fair share of representation and resources for education, health care, and nutrition assistance. But Democrats will not let this stand. We will keep fighting Trump’s efforts to intimidate and undercount immigrant communities. And we will put an end to the hateful tactics of this administration once and for all on November 3rd when we elect Joe Biden as the next president of the United States.”
