NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today announced that — late last night — the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California issued a preliminary injunction stating that the Trump Administration cannot stop collecting census information early. Data collection efforts for the 2020 Decennial Census must continue through October 31, as originally planned. Earlier this month, Attorney General James led a large coalition of attorneys general, cities, and counties from around the nation, as well as the U.S. Conference of Mayors, in supporting legal action to prevent implementation of the Trump Administration's “Rush Plan,” which aimed to reduce the time in which self-response questionnaires would be accepted and door-to-door follow-ups would take place in this year’s census.
