Power Of New York, Texas Hinges On Immigrant Count

In Roll Call, Michael Macagnone takes a look at what New York and Texas are doing to prepare for the 2020 census: “New York and Texas could have the biggest swings in congressional representation after the 2020 census. New York is projected to lose two seats, and Texas could gain as many as three, according to forecasting by the nonpartisan consulting firm Election Data Services.

With the stakes so high, New York has organized a statewide effort backed by public funds to counter potential falloff. At the same time, Texas is taking a much less aggressive approach, with state officials largely leaving response drives to independent groups and communities.”
