Schumer Statement On Trump Administration’s Decision To Begin Printing Census Without Citizenship Question

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s decision to begin printing the census without the citizenship question after the Supreme Court ruled they could not add the question without further explanation:
“The exclusion of the citizenship question from the census is a victory for our democracy and for fair representation of all communities in this country. The Trump administration’s politically-motivated efforts to undermine the Constitution in this instance were so reprehensible that even the conservative Supreme Court couldn’t let them get away with it. Democrats in Congress will be watching the Trump administration like a hawk to ensure there is no wrong-doing throughout this process and that every single person is counted.”
