Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference Education Fund, released the following statement following oral argument before the U.S. Supreme Court on the dispute over Commerce Secretary Ross’ decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census:
“Today’s oral argument leaves no doubt that the Supreme Court must uphold the careful, well-reasoned, and fact-bound decisions of three federal judges to block the addition of an untested citizenship question on the 2020 Census. This is about our nation’s commitment to ensuring every community gets its fair share of resources and equitable representation in our democratic institutions. Opposition to the citizenship question has transcended partisanship and politics because this last-minute question will hurt everyone. We urge the Supreme Court to prevent this decennial disaster.”
