Schumer Statement On Trump Effort To Ban Undocumented Immigrants From Being Counted In 2020 Census

Washington, D.C.— Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released following statement in response to President Trump’s effort to ban undocumented immigrants from being counted in the US Census 2020:
“This order isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on and will be struck down by the courts. Attempting to weaponize the Census for political gain is yet another racially driven attack by a president and administration that wrongly views immigrants as the enemy, when they are a vital part of our society. This heartless order will only stoke fear and deprive already underfunded communities across America of much-needed federal resources across all of government, including education, transportation, infrastructure, and more.”
