The Trump administration has launched its most far-reaching attack on immigrants to date in the guise of a seemingly innocuous regulatory change: the revised “public charge” rule. When the new rule goes into effect on October 15, barring delays due to litigation, immigrants accessing programs that help them meet basic needs, such as food, housing, and health care, can be denied a green card, and individuals deemed likely to use these programs can be denied admission to the United States.

Fueled by xenophobia, racism, and hate, the current administration has sought from day 1 to dismantle America’s historical role as a beacon of hope and a land of refuge.
As members of the California Census 2020 Statewide Funders’ Initiative, we commend the U.S. Supreme Court for blocking the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 census.
Today, the Supreme Court of the United States blocked, for now, the citizenship question from being added to the 2020 Census. While this decision is an important victory for fairness, justice, and democracy, there is still significant work ahead to ensure a fair and accurate count of all Californians – and the future of our state.
As an organization committed to equity and justice, GCIR believes every person deserves to be counted. We applaud the Supreme Court’s decision today to temporarily block the addition of a citizenship question on the 2020 census. This ruling is a victory for democracy, yet the census still faces significant challenges.
GCIR has embarked on a comprehensive and collective endeavor to examine existing grantmaking; analyze global, national, and state trends; and engage a wide range of stakeholders, including GCIR members, immigrant rights and service organizations, as well as allies in academia and the public sector.
