The Supreme Court just dealt a huge blow to the Trump administration

 

The Supreme Court just dealt a huge blow to the Trump administration’s attempts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. This morning they refused to give the administration the go-ahead to include the question — for now.

BREAKING: Supreme Court rules on Census citizenship question

BREAKING: Supreme Court rules on Census citizenship question

The Supreme Court just ruled on President Trump’s baseless attempt to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The Court blocked the question, but in an unexpected move, the ruling was narrow enough that the Trump administration could try to reintroduce the question before the 2020 Census.  

 

 

The citizenship question targets immigrants, but it impacts everyone. If noncitizen homes are undercounted, states like California will lose out on critical federal funding and political representation. Imagine:

 

First responders and firefighters slashed from your city’s budget. School art programs canceled. Congressional districts taken away. These are just some of many potential scenarios we could face if the President tries to re-up the citizenship question and an undercount takes place. That’s why I’m asking, Michael: 

 

 

We’ve fought this from the beginning, Michael. While the Supreme Court moved in the right direction today, the Court made it clear the battle is far from over. It’s now on us to stand up, organize, and make sure everyone counts. 

 

Onward, 

 

Xavier

Harris, Colleagues Introduce Legislation to Strengthen Rights of Public Sector Workers to Join Unions, Bargain Collectively

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) on Wednesday joined Senator Mazie K. Hirono (D-HI) and 33 of their colleagues in introducing the Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act of 2019, legislation that will guarantee the right of public employees to organize, act concertedly, and bargain collectively in states that currently do not afford these basic protections. There are nearly 17.3 million public workers across the country. Unlike private sector workers, there is no federal law protecting the freedom of public sector workers to join a union and collectively bargain for fair wages, benefits, and improved working conditions.
