Friday, July 12, 2019

DENVER - Gov. Jared Polis released the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement that he would issue an executive order related to citizenship information. 

“Today the President recognized that there were no legal grounds to add the citizenship question to the census. In Colorado, we are working to make sure we have the most accurate count possible. An accurate census is a critical tool for ensuring Colorado receives fair representation in Congress and resources that support our schools, infrastructure, and other critical services. Questions designed to deter participation should not be allowed.”
