Why Asking About Citizenship in Next Census is a Bad Idea
April 18, 2019
Viatorians agree with the ACLU, whose members are against the Trump administration’s idea to ask about citizenship in the 2020 census. Here are some of the reasons why it matters:
- The number of representatives we get in Congress
- The number of votes we get in the electoral college (pretty relevant for 2020)
- How much federal funding we get for stuff like schools, healthcare, and roads
- The data state officials use to prepare for natural disasters.
