Secretary of the State Denise Merrill Statement on the Supreme Court's Census Decision

“Thankfully, it appears that the Supreme Court has rejected the Trump administration’s failed attempt to create a believable reason to include the so-called ‘citizenship question’ in the census. This question was specifically proposed to create a political advantage for 'Republicans and Non-Hispanic Whites,' and its inclusion in the census would have made a mockery of the census’ charge to count every person.
“The census is meant to count the number of people in the United States, not advantage political parties or racial groups, and today the Supreme Court rejected the Trump Commerce Department’s attempt to suppress that count.” – Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill
