You cannot weaponize the census!! This is a suppression tactic and it’s already well understood that a question like this damages the reliability of data by skewing the result. Latinos and immigrants fear citizenship information won’t be protected despite law. There is a profound distrust about whether any citizenship information in the census would be kept private. Nationally, only 35% of immigrants and 31% of Latinos trusted the Trump administration to protect this information and not share it with other federal agencies — an issue that has already arisen in debates about the citizenship question. Trust in the Trump administration already at a all time low. A citizenship question lowers willingness to respond to the census. This will lead to substantial undercounts. Adding a citizenship question would hurt the quality of information that Americans provide. After all, internal census analyses have already estimated that the citizenship question could decrease response rates among the population by 6-10 percent. The U.S. Constitution requires a census every 10 years of all persons living in the country for the purpose of apportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives (Article I, sec. 2, clause 3) among the states. The Constitution explicitly requires an “actual Enumeration” of “all persons,” imposing on the federal government the duty to count the “whole number of persons in each State.” Both Republican and Democratic administrations, through the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), have confirmed unequivocally that the Constitution requires a count of all persons living in the United States on Census Day, regardless of citizenship status. Deliberately sabotaging the census is a violation of the constitution and the oath of office sworn by Congress members. You MUST vote no.
