Page Gardner, president of Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund, released the following statement after the Trump Administration announced they will include a question about citizenship to the U.S. Census:
“The Trump Administration is playing dangerous political games with people’s lives and the country by adding a question about citizenship to the U.S. Census. By purposefully undercounting Latino and immigrant families — and pretending they don’t exist — Donald Trump and his Administration are sabotaging the system and will take federal resources and fair representation away from people of color.
“This is just the latest in a decades-long attempt of the Republican Party to take away the right to vote from millions of people of color. Republicans can’t win fairly, so they do everything they can to rig the system.”
