June 27, 2019

Senator Cantwell, the Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation, today released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled that the Department of Commerce failed to give a full and true explanation for their decision to add a question about citizenship.

“Wilbur Ross was wrong. Every person must be counted – that’s what the Constitution requires,” Ranking Member Cantwell said. “We need full participation and no communities should feel intimidated or disenfranchised. It is critical to our democracy.”
