In an effort to stick it to immigrants, Republicans tried to add a question about citizenship status to the 2020 census. They failed, but their fear mongering tactics were largely felt by immigrant communities.
Here at Progress Texas, we believe in an accurate and complete census count. 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.
Trump’s loss at the Supreme Court is a win for the 2020 census, but his pursuit of citizenship data may still have negative consequences for Texas.
Now more than ever, it's important that everyone complete the census in order to ensure representation for all Texans.
Sign our petition to say you believe all Texans should be counted in the 2020 census.
