Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Trump Administration's Decision to Print 2020 Census Without Citizenship Question

Posted to Applied Web NY on Tue, 07/02/2019 - 18:20

"The Supreme Court last week made it clear that this anti-immigrant question was unconstitutional and that the census is too important to play partisan politics. For once, President Trump has listened to reason and the facts, and dropped this cynical attempt to weaponize one of the underpinnings of our very democracy. 

"By ending his bid to add this blatantly discriminatory question to an objective process, we can continue to do our work to ensure every New Yorker is counted and receives fair representation in Washington.

"New York has always been and will continue to be a beacon of hope for all, and we will never allow this administration to get away with their hateful agenda."
