Statement From Governor Andrew M. Cuomo On President Trump's Comments About The Census Citizenship Question

Posted to Applied Web NY on Fri, 07/05/2019 - 19:33

"Despite the Supreme Court's decision to block the inclusion of a citizen question on the U.S. census, President Trump will not drop his bid to include this discriminatory question that would jeopardize the accuracy and legitimacy of census data.

"To issue an executive order, which would likely be similarly struck down, or print an addendum would be a gross misuse of executive power, and President Trump must stop using the census as a political pawn in his anti-immigrant agenda.

"Shame on you, Mr. President, for continuing to put the interests of those in power in Washington over the well-being of your citizens. In New York, we will do everything in our power to ensure every New Yorker is counted."
