Statement from Mayor de Blasio, NYC Census Director Julie Menin on Census 2020 Extension


NEW YORK:____“This is welcome news as New Yorkers are working tirelessly to avoid an undercount for so many already underrepresented communities. Our city celebrates this extension as our fair share of $1.5 trillion in annual federal funding and congressional representation is at risk. We will continue our hard work to get every New Yorker counted.”

Statement from Julie Menin, Director of NYC Census 2020 and Executive Assistant Corporation Counsel, NYC Law Department:

“Once again, the Trump Administration tried to throw up a politically insidious and illegal roadblock to stop people from filling out the census and once again, they’ve failed spectacularly. This ruling, which will extend the census into October, and sends a clear message that the current December 31 deadline for data reporting cannot work, is a major victory in our fight to ensure New Yorkers get every ounce of the money, power, and respect to which we’re entitled.”
