Census Bureau Slashes Field Work, Excludes Non-Citizens

The director of the U.S. Census Bureau, Steven Dillingham, ordered on Monday night that “illegal aliens” be removed from the final numbers used to apportion seats in the U.S. House of Representative. In doing so, Dillingham is following a directive from President Donald Trump dated July 21.

New York State is expected to lose one seat in the House, if Trump’s directive is followed. California will lose two to three seats. The census has been conducted every ten years since 1790.
