Common Cause/NY Applauds SCOTUS decision on census


NEW YORK -- Responding to breaking news that the Supreme Court has ruled unanimously against the Trump administration's attempt to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, Common Cause/NY Executive Director Susan Lerner, released the following statement:

"The Supreme Court's ruling recognizes that Secretary Ross' intentions were indeed 'mismatched' to his explanation in seeking to add a citizenship question to the U.S. Census. It's a clear perversion of the Constitution for political gain to undermine the redistricting process, by suppressing the count in immigrant rich states like New York, which could lose out on millions of dollars in federal aid for roads, hospitals, and other shared resources. The census is an essential part of our democracy, and Common Cause/NY is committed to ensuring a fair and accurate count so that every New Yorker has a voice."
