CU and CUF File Census Amicus Brief

Department of Commerce v. New York

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joined forces with other conservative groups, urging the Supreme Court to lift a lower court injunction that prohibits the Commerce Department from including a U.S. citizenship question in the 2020 census. Our brief contends that distinguishing between U.S. citizens and those persons in the country who are not citizens is an important consideration in fulfilling the main purpose of the decennial census, which is to determine the proper apportionment of U.S. House of Representatives seats among the states. It closes with an impactful discussion of how opposition to the citizenship question is being driven by global elitists, deeply resentful of the election of Donald Trump in 2016, with a goal of skewing U.S. House of Representatives apportionment in favor of deeply blue states, as well as the accompanying allocation of electoral college votes in presidential elections, order to secure and retain political power in future elections. The brief concludes:

Globalization may be sought by many of our nation’s elites, but it is not the formula adopted by the framers. Our Constitution’s Preamble reminds us that it was “We the people” who united together to establish the Constitution in order to “secure the Blessings of Liberty” – not the act of citizens of the world to create a global community. James Madison cautioned us in Federalist 52 that it was absolutely “essential to liberty” to keep the “intimate” connection between the House of Representatives and American people, which requires distinguishing between those who are citizens members of the polity and those who are not.
