Census Bureau Overwhelmed By Public Comments Opposing Citizenship Question

“The Census Bureau received 147,831 documents with comments” on this summer’s Federal Register Notice, according to an analysis posted today on Regulations.gov.

As highlighted by National Public Radio (NPR) reporter Hansi Lo Wang, nearly 138,000 of those comments were about the proposed question on citizenship, and about 99 percent of such comments were opposed.

Many of the Census Project’s stakeholders were a part of that opposition.

The count of documents doesn’t even include all the individuals and groups that signed onto petitions that were submitted.
