Now it’s CONFIRMED: Trump SIGNIFICANTLY DID UNDERCOUNT MINORITIES in the 2020 census.

In the past few years I have posted several news reports of Trump’s DELIBERATE, RACIST, PARTISAN abuse of the 2020 census in order to undercount minorities and unfairly help the Republican Party.  I have copied a few of them below — after THESE NEW CONFIRMED REPORTS that TRUMP DID INDEED SIGNIFICANTLY UNDERCOUNT MINORITIES.

 

NEW INFORMATION in March 2020:

 

A reliable source reported this on March 10, 2022:  The 2020 Census missed 18.8 million Americans – the biggest net undercount in three decades. The Census Bureau said that while the overall population total of 323 million was accurate, it undercounted the number of Hispanic, Black, and Native American residents and overcounted white and Asian residents. Census results are used to guide voting districts, congressional representation, and the allocation of an estimated $1.5 trillion in federal funds each year for health care, education, transportation, and other public services. (New York Times / Politico / NPR / Washington Post)

Also, this was reported in March 2022:  New report finds BIPOC massively undercounted in 2020 census; get ready for the gerrymandering:  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/3/10/2085134/-New-report-finds-BIPOC-massively-undercounted-in-2020-census-get-ready-for-the-gerrymandering?detail=emaildkre

 

Another source reported this in March 2022:  Census Bureau undercounted Black, Hispanic and Native American people

 

This was posted on March 12, 2022:  The 2020 Census Undercounted Native Americans, Black and Latinx People:  https://truthout.org/articles/the-2020-census-undercounted-native-americans-black-and-latinx-people/?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=a4c019a0-2db2-4ae0-89a6-81ce1134f799

 

This came out in February 2022:

Trump Administration’s Hidden Effort to Influence 2020 Census
Documents obtained by the Brennan Center through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit expose more about the Trump administration’s unprecedented attempts to improperly influence the 2020 Census. At stake was the accuracy and legitimacy of the population count, which is used to divvy up seats in the House of Representatives, draw electoral districts, and distribute $1.5 trillion in annual federal funding. Among other things, the administration tried to illegally remove undocumented people from some of the data. The newly uncovered records show the importance of adding guardrails against future political interference.

 

Also, I have many more articles about this from before February 2022.  If you want me to send them to you, please e-mail me at glenanderson@integra.net
