Commerce's Ross Insists Census Citizenship Question Supports Voting Rights Act

According to Reuters, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross insisted on Thursday that the plan by the Trump administration to revive a citizenship question on the 2020 census was aimed at bolstering the Voting Rights Act.

Critics of the move believe including the question will scare immigrants and Latinos into abstaining from the decennial survey.

Ross said that gathering accurate data on U.S. citizens outweighed any potential reduction in response rates.
