Maloney Issues Statement on Supreme Court Ruling in Census Case

December 19, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC – On December 18, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, the Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, issued the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled to dismiss a challenge to the Trump Administration’s plan to exclude undocumented immigrants from the U.S. Census:  

“Today, the Supreme Court reaffirmed that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross must take an ‘actual enumeration’ of every person in the United States. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court did not address whether President Trump may or may not exclude undocumented immigrants from the Census count, but instead found that the Trump Administration’s actions are so speculative and unclear that the Court simply cannot rule at this time. This lack of information about the Census is a problem of Secretary Ross’s own making—and it applies not only to the Trump Administration’s plans for undocumented immigrants, but also to the accuracy, completeness, and timing of the entire Census itself. Secretary Ross continues to withhold documents from the Oversight Committee about critical problems and delays that affect all 50 states and jeopardize the accurate and complete enumeration that is required by the Constitution. The Committee expects a full response to its subpoena by this coming Monday.”

On December 10, Chairwoman Maloney issued a subpoena to Ross for the full unredacted set of internal Census documents requested by the Committee last month relating to data errors and delays with the 2020 Census.
