Don’t let the US Census discriminate. CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE JASON RITTEREISER.

 
David,
 
The Trump Administration has proposed adding a troubling question to the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census: “What is your citizenship status?”
 
This kind of question hasn’t been asked on a Census since the 1950s, and for good reason: It’s designed to scare our immigrant neighbors and keep them from being accurately counted.
 
 
This blatantly racist tactic could have consequences for decades to come -- including the number of representatives each state gets in Congress, the number of votes each state gets in the Electoral College, and the amount of federal funding for essential programs like Medicaid, Head Start, and the National School Lunch program. 
 
This seemingly-small move from President Trump hurts all Americans and will drive our immigrant communities into the shadows for ten years.
 
 
Thanks for your support, 
-- Team Jason
