Today, Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40) issued the following statement responding to the Commerce Department’s announcement that a new citizenship question would be added to the 2020 Census:
“The Census’s new citizenship question is another shameful Trump assault on our democracy.  It will undoubtedly drive down Census participation, and cost our neighborhoods federal funds and seats in Congress.  Trump is worried about losing power, so he's trying to take power away from our communities.”
