The Census is constitutionally required to count every person living in the United States. 

But Trump's Commerce Department is trying to add an unnecessary, untested, and unreliable question about citizenship status to the survey -- which, coupled with his anti-immigrant fearmongering, will decrease the response rate of communities of color and keep those communities from being fairly represented. 

Here's how we stop this racist scheme in its tracks: the Census IDEA Act. This bill would require three years of review for any new Census questions. 

This would stop Trump's Census-rigging in its tracks -- and ensure that only well-tested questions appear on the survey in the future. Tell Congress to support the Census IDEA Act now!
