(STL.News) – The NAACP released the following statement yesterday:
The following statement is from Derrick Johnson, President and CEO of NAACP on the Trump Administration’s decision not to include the controversial citizenship question to the 2020 Census:
“The Trump administration’s decision today to abandon its attempt to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census is a victory for democracy. It is the outcome we have been fighting for all along. The administration deliberately sought to increase the political power of whites at the expense of already underrepresented communities.
