The census is supposed to count everyone living in the country in order to allocate seats in Congress and determine federal dollars dispersed to each state.
Federal money given to states as a result of the census is used to fund health care, housing, education, transportation and more. Even a one percent undercount could cost Texas at least $300 million PER YEAR over the next decade. A failure to count all Texans would also result in gerrymandering and lack of representation in our government.
In an effort to stick it to immigrants, Republicans have added a question about citizenship status. Experts say this question would greatly reduce census participation by intimidating immigrants.
