"With immigrant communities already living in fear, demanding citizenship status would drive them into the shadows, leading to a major undercount that threatens billions in federal funding for NY and our fair representation in Congress and the Electoral College. That's what an accurate census provides for and why I will fight any effort to politicize it".
Critics of the citizenship question say it might dissuade immigrants, and perhaps many citizens, from being counted, with a disproportionate impact on Democratic-leaning states.
The suit argues that including the citizenship question was an arbitrary and capricious decision of the federal government. "His administration is throwing away decades of proven practice by demanding that people responding to the Census disclose their citizenship status".
The lawsuit, led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and joined by MA, was also joined by the attorneys general of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Washington D.C., as well as the cities of Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Providence, and Seattle, the city and county of San Francisco, and the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
It was also a fresh challenge to what New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, at a press conference announcing the lawsuit, called the administration's "anti-immigrant animus".
"This question about citizenship discourages accuracy and inclusion", she said, noting the constitutional obligation to conduct an "actual Enumeration" of the population every 10 years.
The lawsuit accuses Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross - whose department oversees the census - of knowingly adding a question to "deter participation" and "undermine the decennial population count".
Centennial census data is used to redraw House districts, which determine how many seats each state receives and how many electoral votes they can cast.
Tom Cochran, executive director of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, which represents mayors of cities with 30,000 or more residents, said the addition of the question could hurt cities regardless of party. However, the question was added in the context of a "climate of fear" instigated, Frosh said, by President Donald Trump. "I am filing this lawsuit to ensure that immigrants in IL are represented fairly and accurately".
The census already asks Americans about their citizenship as part of the American Community Survey, a smaller annual survey that goes out to about 3 million people. "Questions as to citizenship are particularly sensitive in minority communities and would inevitably trigger hostility, resentment and refusal to cooperate".
The NAACP says the plans for the census will lead to a massive undercounting of blacks. Consequently, inaccurate counts can potentially deprive states of much-needed funds created to protect low-income and vulnerable communities.
