Appleseed Centers celebrate new judicial rulings affirming the importance of an inclusive and complete census count


An inclusive and complete census is essential for the communities Appleseed serves, and today we are celebrating two recent judicial decisions.


September 14, 2020 - Last week, a federal court ruled that President Trump’s order to exclude undocumented immigrants from population counts used in reapportionment is unconstitutional. That decision follows a separate federal judge’s temporary restraining order that the Census Bureau must stop trying to wind down its collection process until a court hearing is held on September 17th. Appleseed Centers in South Carolina, Kansas, and Nebraska are working hard to overcome the barriers caused by the unconstitutional orders from the administration to make sure everyone is counted. These judicial decisions are key affirmations that immigrants are important members of our communities. Sarah Pacilio Appleseed Network Manager
