(SACRAMENTO) – 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.
(SACRAMENTO) – Assembly Bill 4 -- introduced by Assemblymember Dr. Joaquin Arambula in a renewed effort to ensure that undocumented adults in California have access to health care -- passed on the Assembly floor late Tuesday afternoon.
The bill – co-sponsored by Health Access California and the California Immigrant Policy Center – now will move to the State Senate for consideration.
