NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement after New York and the 26-member coalition it is leading were granted the right to intervene as defendants in the Alabama census case:

“We are intervening in this case because the federal government is failing its obligation to represent the American people, and this lawsuit deserves a robust defense. We will continue to fight to ensure that every person residing in this country is counted — just as the framers intended. Despite the Trump Administration’s attempts to tip the balance of power in the nation and Alabama’s endeavor to continue down that path, we will never stop fighting for a full and accurate count.”
