J. Christian Adams Praises Inclusion of Citizenship Question in 2020 Census

(ALEXANDRIA, VA.) – March 27, 2018: Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) President J. Christian Adams praised the Trump Administration’s move to include a citizenship question in the coming 2020 Census.

“Only citizens should be given political power. Our current system leads to noncitizens being allocated political power in legislatures at the expense of citizens. I applaud the Trump Administration’s decision to include the citizenship question in the 2020 Census. It’s critical that the next redistricting cycle account for the citizen residents of districts so urban centers do not unfairly profit from the political subsidy that higher noncitizen populations provide. This carries the nation one step closer to preventing against actual foreign influences in our elections.
