President Trump Remarks on Census Citizenship Question
Produced: C-SPAN 2019
The last video to consider is President Trump announcing an executive order to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census and ordering all federal agencies to turn over documents and data regarding the number of non-citizens in the U.S. to the Commerce Department. This imagery of the President giving a speech in the White House Rose Garden became a dominant narrative that prevailed amongst the national media outlets coverage of the 2020 Census. This announcement may have discouraged the participation of communities most in need of the federal assistance which is allocated based on the results of our decennial census.
A Visual Census is part of Come to Your Census: Who Counts in America?, an art and civic experience intended to drive awareness and mobilize the diverse communities of the Bay Area around the urgent, long-term impact of the 2020 US Census.
