The Census: Excluding the Undocumented?

The US Supreme Court considers today an appeal from the Trump administration that seeks to revive its efforts to exclude undocumented immigrants from the calculations used to apportion congressional seats. Meantime, officials of the Census Bureau say they cannot deliver the data required to reallocate seats in the US House of Representatives until after Trump leaves office, giving a blow to Trump’s plans to exclude undocumented immigrants from political reapportionment and federal dollars.

Guests: José Pérez, Deputy General Counsel, LatinoJustice PRLDEF, New York, NY; Ángel Díaz, Counsel, Liberty & National Security Program, Brennan Center for Justice, New York, NY; Lizette Escobedo, National Director of Civic Engagement, NALEO Education Fund, Los Angeles, CA.
