Minnesota joins California suit against citizenship question

Minnesota joins California suit against citizenship question

As the Census Bureau points out, "It is against the law for any Census Bureau employee to disclose or publish any census or survey information that identifies an individual or business.?.?. the FBI and other government entities do not have the legal right to access this information".

The multistate effort to get Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to reverse inclusion of the citizenship question is the right fight. Political representation is also tied back to this data-congressional seats are assigned based on census results, and state and local governments are use it to produce political district boundaries.

The Census Bureau is required to count people where they live on April 1, 2020, not where they are registered to vote. "California simply has too much to lose for us to allow the Trump administration to botch this important decennial obligation".

California Attorney General Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed the federal lawsuit Tuesday. The short form went to most households in America.

Conducted once a decade, the USA census began collecting data about same-sex couples in 1990, when the "unmarried partner" category was added to the relationship question to measure the growing trend of couples living together before tying the knot. Today, one in six North Carolina children-365,000-are US -born citizens who live in a household with at least one immigrant parent.

Introducing an additional, untested question so late in the census life cycle is concerning to demographers and social scientists, who like me, rely on the census as a key source of information about how and why our population is changing.

In fact, such an implementation has been adequate since 1965, when the Voting Rights Act was passed, without putting a citizenship question on the census because other government data sources, such as the American Community Survey, have been sufficient.

"The 2020 decennial census is the department's top priority". The citizenship question amounts to one more reason to doubt it will be sufficiently accurate. That year, the U.S. Census Bureau projects that older adults will edge out children in population size: People age 65 and over are expected to number 78 million, while children under age 18 will number 76.4 million.

A question regarding citizenship has already embroiled the 2020 census in controversy.

The Trump administration wants to ask all voting-age USA residents about the status of their citizenship in the 2020 census.

This week, the U.S. Census Bureau, which is part of the Department of Commerce issued a list of categories it plans to track in the 2020 U.S. Census. Moreover, President Trump's reelection campaign sent an email to potential contributors asking them to weigh in on the President's desire to add the citizenship question before Secretary Ross made his final decision. Not "all citizens." If immigrants, terrified of deportation and the breakup of their families, hide from the census, that would adversely impact every state and thousands of counties, cities and small towns. "It shoots for about one-and-a-half to two percent of the population, and they ask all these detailed questions, several related to citizenship".

"In a very transparent way, [I] talked to them about our role as federal employees and servants of the people of the United States to ensure that we continue to do a good census regardless of the conditions that we do it under out in the community", he said.
