San Francisco Chronicle: Judge allows California to sue Trump administration over census question
This is big news for California’s effort to stop Trump from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Now we must turn up the pressure on the Trump administration to drop this reckless pursuit that would derail the integrity of the census.
We know that a citizenship question on the census would discourage immigrant communities from responding, resulting in an undercount of our population. That’s why the question has not appeared on the decennial Census for more than fifty years.
The census must be accurate, and we must count everyone. That’s why I’m standing with California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to tell the Trump administration “No!” on the citizenship question in the 2020 census.
If we have an undercount of our population, vital federal services like homeland security funding, natural disaster preparation, transportation resources, and even resources for our schools could all be drastically cut.
But adding a citizenship question to the census isn’t merely a bad idea –– it’s unconstitutional.
The United States Constitution requires a total population count. The Trump administration is trying to hijack the census for political gain, and we can’t allow them to succeed.
Andrew Janz’s Campaign Tops Online Fundraising in California Last Month
Fresno, CA (Aug. 21, 2018) – In the month of July, Andrew Janz raised more money than any other Congressional candidate or sitting member of House and Senate from his home state. Janz raised almost 1 million dollars. His strong July total puts him at 7th in the nation for online Democratic fundraising and 2nd in the nation for Congressional campaigns.
“It’s pretty obvious who’s funding my campaign and who’s funding Devin’s. This campaign proves you don’t have to take any corporate PAC money to run a strong race. You can tell by the numbers who’s ready to work for the people,” Andrew said.
Andrew’s filing shows an impressive 34,000+ contributions in the month of July. Janz continues to raise more money in the district than Nunes while also sticking to his pledge of not taking corporate PAC money.
