President Trump signed an executive memo yesterday stating his intention to exclude undocumented residents from the 2020 Census count when allocating congressional seats ahead of next year's redistricting process. This unconstitutional move comes after the Supreme Court prevented the administration from adding a citizenship question directly to the census questionnaire.
This a direct attack on the American democratic process -- every community has a constitutional right to be equally represented through apportionment and redistricting. Do you agree? Sign our petition to demand the census count be protected from manipulation.
A census count manipulated in this way would have devastating impacts on redistricting. We may not be able to rectify this manipulation for a decade -- and even worse, the impacts of the bills passed under this manipulation would be felt for decades.
We must stop Trump and protect the integrity of the 2020 Census, apportionment, and redistricting. Sign this petition to stand on the right side of history.
