DENVER — Gov. Jared Polis today released a statement on the federal judge’s ruling against the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Colorado joined the lawsuit in April 2018.
“The census should not be used as a tool in partisan politics, nor should it be weaponized to attack immigrants and communities of color,” said Governor Jared Polis. “Every Coloradan should be counted in the census to ensure that Colorado receives our fair share of representation and funding. I applaud today's decision and look forward to working on as accurate a count of our residents as possible.”
