US Census: The Lawsuits, The Race Question.
A federal court in New York blocked Trump from using the census population count to undercut immigrant representation in Congress. Another federal court in California has barred the Census Bureau from ending the count in September. Political leaders discuss these news and a distinguished scholar talks about the questions of race and Latino origin in the census form: why they are asked, how the data is used, how people choose to identify, how is the category of race defined, and the counting of mixed-race people.
Guests: California State Sen. María Elena Durazo, D-Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA; Sofia Quintanar, Deputy Press Secretary, Office of the New York State Attorney General, Brooklyn, NY; Dr. Nancy López, Professor of Sociology, Director and Co-Founder, Institute for the Study of “Race” and Social Justice, Co-Chair, Census Complete Count Committee, University of New Mexico Albuquerque, Albuquerque, NM.
