OCA Calls on Congress to Remove Citizenship Question from 2020 Census
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
16 January 2019
 
Washington, DC – OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates calls on Congress to act to remove the citizenship question from the 2020 Census.
 
On Tuesday morning, Judge Jesse Furman in the Southern District of New York Court ruled that it was a violation of the Administrative Procedures Act to add a citizenship question. While he noted that challengers have been unable to prove that the citizenship question intends to discriminate against noncitizens, he pointed out Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’ ask for this question an “egregious” violation.
 
“As Judge Furman states in his ruling, the ‘integrity of the census is a matter of national importance’ and the citizenship question would very likely harm this integrity because of the lack of testing and research behind it,” says Roland Hwang, OCA National Vice President of Public Affairs. “There are increasing sentiments to not participate or complete the survey for the Asian American and Pacific Islander community due to the fear and distrust of why a citizenship question is even required when it has not been used since the 1950s. OCA implores Congress to stop this misguided policy and remove the citizenship question from the 2020 Census.”
 
OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates is a national organization of community advocates dedicated to improving the social, political, and economic well-being of Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPIs).
