DNC on 2020 Census Victory

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after the Trump administration abandoned its efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census:

“This is a huge victory for democracy. The Trump administration wanted to undercount immigrant communities with a census designed to intimidate them and drive them into the shadows. But they couldn’t fool our courts, and they can’t fool the American people. We’ve had enough of Trump and the Republican Party’s attempts to circumvent the Constitution, disempower people of color, and strip resources from our most diverse communities. This fight isn’t over, but Democrats will always stand for an accurate census that ensures every state receives their fair share of resources and representation.”
