A federal court ruled against President Trump’s attempt to not count undocumented immigrants for the purpose of reapportioning congressional seats after the 2020 Census, saying Thursday it violated the law.

Trump’s July memorandum was met with legal action from several groups, led by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The deadline to fill out the U.S. Census is Sep. 30, but much of New York’s population remains uncounted – particularly its low-income neighborhoods. According to the CUNY Mapping Service’s Census Tracking Project, the statewide response rate is 61 percent, compared to the national average of 64.9 percent – as of Aug. 31. If this trend continues, the federal government will drastically cut New York’s funding for education and crucial social services over the next ten years.
