Schatz Statement On Trump Census Memo

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement on President Trump’s memo to ban undocumented immigrants from being counted in the Census.

“This is an illegal and unconstitutional attempt to scare people from participating in the Census and influence congressional representation. The Supreme Court has already ruled against the Trump Administration's efforts to politicize the 2020 Census, and yet, they refuse to stop. We must remain vigilant to protect our democracy.”
