NYC Census 2020 Statement on U.S Census Bureau's Restoration of Oct. 31 Deadline

In response to the U.S. Census Bureau updating its website to indicate that the census will once again be extended until October 31, Julie Menin, Director, NYC Census 2020 and Executive Assistant Corporation Counsel, NYC Law Department issued the following statement:

"The Trump Administration picked a fight with democracy and democracy won. We now expect the Census Bureau to fully comply with Judge Koh's order and not only inform every census employee that the census will continue until October 31, as it should have all along, but also ensure that this is the end to all legal shenanigans and the count actually continues until the end of the month. This is a victory for all of us and for the rule of law to ensure that everyone is counted. In NYC, we will continue our fight to ensure New Yorkers get every ounce of the money, power, and respect to which we are entitled.”
