Texas Democrats on Trump Backing Down on Census Citizenship Question and New Executive Order

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“After losing at the Supreme Court and backing down on his census citizenship question, Trump’s newest executive order to get his hands on information about immigrants is just as racist and dangerous.

“Trump and Republicans obsession with writing immigrants and people of color out of their own government is wrong. The fundamental premise of our Constitution is equal representation and protection under the law. That means fair election maps and every single person in our communities being counted in our democracy.

“Real lives are at stake. This fight isn’t over.”
