emergency spending bill last month with no strings attached, what the us government gave. >>trump administration was a blank check to engage in more of the same the trump administration has made it clear it will continue to crack down. >>immigration and customs enforcement agents are preparing to launch raids and round up undocumented immigrants. they're absolutely going to happen there's. >>approximately a million people in this country with removal orders, democratic lawmakers fear families and children will be caught up in the rates. >>which are expected in large cities, including san francisco, los angeles new york and miami. in washington. alexandra the mound. we have continuing coverage on the ice raids on our. >>website there you can find when and where the rains are expected. what to do if they happen and how lawmakers are responding it's all happening at kron 4 dot com. >>another big story we are following tonight, president trump abandoning the effort to add a citizenship question to the 2020 senses, instead, he
5:33 pm
will pursue other ways to get that data. >>i joining us right now is julie and mark she is the staff attorney for. groups it's called advancing justice asian law caucus, a welcome. thank you so much. what does this move mean exactly. yeah, thanks for having this is a really important day for the census. so the census happens once every 10 years and it's essential to how we distribute federal funds how we just revered seats in congress among the states to the electoral college and then to representation at the local level as well and so a lot is on the line here and when the trump administration announced that they were adding a citizenship question the last minute. it was untested it created a tremendous amount of fear. and all experts predicted it would lead to a severe undercount among communities of color and immigrant communities and that hit states like california,
5:34 pm
particularly hard. so the fact that the question will be on the census means will have a more accurate count and all communities will be counted. but in light of this battle which has been so intense and going on for so long now isn't really likely that we're still want to get an undercount cause it's had a chilling effect. >>so many people in the immigrant communities will still be afraid to come forward with the fall fill out the form in general even without the question. >>yes, absolutely that's completely true people across california and the bay area have been mobilizing to talk to their communities about why census participation is essential and in all of these conversations the citizenship question is one of the first things that come comes up and that fear is president and it will remain, but the fact that the question won't be there will make it a little bit easier to explain to people why it's worth participating and why participation as if ok so, but now the question will be added to the sense they're still going to collect that data how. >>how is that going to happen yeah absolutely so that in
5:35 pm
announcement today president trump emphasized that the be collecting this data. but what he didn't explain is that they already have the data and they already have plans to collect it at the census bureau so really nothing new is they vlways collect data from different agencies to try ask a few questions as possible on the form which is exactly what's happening now they won't be asking about the citizenship question and i'll just take data they already have such as data in the social security administration and put it in one place and one thing that's important to know is that they're very strong rules about the census bureau keeping all personal responses, confidential. so even if data comes in from the social security administration and gets linked to someone census response. they can't share that back out with the social security administration or with any other federal government agencies so you said you're trying to get
5:36 pm
groups to talk to the communities and encourage them ok the questions i will be there we need to develop this fall what kinds of things are you hearing from the people in these communities that are fearful about this yeah what people are understandably very scared the trump administration has taken countless inning immigrant actions. >>the the census laws are statutory and a bit harder for the asministration to unilaterally change. >>than other areas of immigration, but that's a very nuanced message about the legal system and safety everyone predicts without the questioner with the question this will be the most difficult census we've ever had in terms of getting out the count and folks are focused on having as many conversations as possible to really build trust with the communities they already serving are connected to and explain to them. what the laws are to protect them and why if they're not responding. their communities are being erased. well, thank you so much for explaining it to us and our
