LatinoJustice Statement on Donald Trump’s Latest Attempt to Block Immigrants from Being Counted for Federal Apportionment Following the U.S. Census

The deepening Covid-19 crisis has exposed the particular vulnerabilities of communities of color, who have limited or compromised access to social support and relief systems. Often hidden in our society, immigrant Latinxs are among the most impacted. This underscores the importance of the 2020 decennial Census and its long-term impact on the Latinx community.
