Sacramento, CA – Assemblymember Dr. Joaquin Arambula (D-Fresno) today issued a statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to block, for now, the Trump administration’s attempt to add the citizenship question to the 2020 census.

“I am grateful that the U.S. Supreme Court has blocked the Trump administration’s move to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The inclusion of that question is unnecessary and could cripple the massive effort to attain a correct count in California. This is especially true in the 31st District that I represent, which is home to populations that are difficult to count, including immigrants, young children, and communities of color.

Since I was elected to the state Assembly in 2016, I’ve devoted much of my efforts and advocacy to improving health care for families and children in the Central Valley and California.

As an emergency room doctor, I saw the vital need for all families to have access to quality care. The 31st Assembly District, which covers much of Fresno County and which I represent in the Legislature, includes some of the state’s most disadvantaged and impoverished communities. I saw too many patients ailing from diabetes, obesity, asthma, heart disease, opioid addiction and other illnesses. I saw how these conditions burdened families emotionally and financially. Watching these families struggle to gain access to medical care and pay for it drove me from the ER to the Assembly.
