The Governor said he called on New York State Attorney General Letitia James to consider state legal options to change the decision.
“New York census officers count New Yorkers from the pandemic impact on the postal system to the Trump administration’s xenophobia, taunts, and illegal efforts to hurt the blue states by discouraging non-citizens and people. We faced an unprecedented challenge last year in our efforts, with countless colors, “said Kuomo. “And despite the growing population of the state, the delegation of the New York State Legislature lost seats in the House of Representatives next year, losing 89 similarly unprecedented responses that lack continuity.”
Cuomo says he believes that undocumented people were nervous about coming forward and that it could easily make up for the difference.
“Do you think it was accurate within 89? No. When talking about 89, are we considering legal options because it may be a small mistake in counting correctly?” Cuomo said. ..
According to data released on Monday, New York will lose one seat in Congress if the number of censuses stands.
The state delegation will shrink from 27 to 26. It is one of the seven states that lost members of the House of Representatives as a result of the 2020 census.
