NYC Census Director Julie Menin on Tonight's U.S. Northern District of California's 2020 Census Ruling

“Once again, the Trump Administration tried to throw up a politically insidious and illegal roadblock to stop people from filling out the census and once again, they’ve failed spectacularly,” said Julie Menin, Director of NYC Census 2020 and Executive Assistant Corporation Counsel, NYC Law Department. “Today’s ruling, which will extend the census into October and sends a clear message that the current December 31 deadline for data reporting cannot work, is a major victory in our fight to ensure New Yorkers get every ounce of the money, power, and respect to which we’re entitled.”
