The Supreme Court just ruled on President Trump’s baseless attempt to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The Court blocked the question, but in an unexpected move, the ruling was narrow enough that the Trump administration could try to reintroduce the question before the 2020 Census.  



The citizenship question targets immigrants, but it impacts everyone. If noncitizen homes are undercounted, states like California will lose out on critical federal funding and political representation. Imagine:


First responders and firefighters slashed from your city’s budget. School art programs canceled. Congressional districts taken away. These are just some of many potential scenarios we could face if the President tries to re-up the citizenship question and an undercount takes place. That’s why I’m asking, Michael: 



We’ve fought this from the beginning, Michael. While the Supreme Court moved in the right direction today, the Court made it clear the battle is far from over. It’s now on us to stand up, organize, and make sure everyone counts.
