  • An accurate census is critical because it is used to determine the distribution of federal dollars and political representation for the next ten years.
  • Medicaid is the largest Census guided program, and the largest share, over $4 billion, of federal funding in New Mexico. New Mexico could lose $32 million every year for the next ten years in Medicaid funding, with just a 1 percent undercount.
  • States and communities that are not fully counted in the Census will not receive equal representation in Congress, the State Legislature, County Commissions or at City Hall.
  • The U.S. Census Bureau will NEVER share information with immigration enforcement agencies like Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), law enforcement agencies like the county sheriff, local police, or the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), or allow this information to be used to determine eligibility for governmental benefits.
