WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump signed a memorandum on Tuesday seeking to exclude undocumented people from being counted in congressional reapportionment in direct violation of Section 2 of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

“The president’s memorandum is stupid, racist and unconstitutional.”
