FWD.us Statement on SCOTUS Decision to Prohibit Adding a Citizenship Question to the United States Census

WASHINGTON, DC – FWD.us President Todd Schulte issued the following statement today on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling, at the Department of Justice’s request, to prohibit the addition of a citizenship question for the first time since 1950 to the upcoming 2020 Census:

WASHINGTON, DC – “We are grateful that the Supreme Court has rejected the Administration’s attempts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 United States Census and remanded this to the lower court. The Court has made very clear that the reasons given by the U.S. government for adding a citizenship question were clearly, entirely, and simply false – which they were. Adding a citizenship question could have led to a dangerous under-counting of the U.S.’ real population, particularly in immigrant communities and communities of color. Given the Administration’s own timeline for printing, it is clear that this question cannot be on the 2020 Census.”
