The Supreme Court will soon decide whether President Donald Trump’s administration can ask 2020 Census respondents if they’re a U.S. citizen.

Census experts have long urged against a citizenship question on the decennial survey, warning it will lead to an undercount. Studies have shown minority populations, especially Hispanic communities, are less likely to respond out of fear of retribution. States like Florida could lose congressional seats and millions in federal financial assistance.

Democrats say it’s a political move by Republicans. They point to documents recently unearthed in the hard drive of a deceased Republican strategist that showed a citizenship question as the first step in a plot to give the GOP an advantage in future elections.

Republicans, though, have pushed hard for its inclusion. Sen. Rick Scott recently said not only does he support a citizenship question, but he thinks noncitizens shouldn’t count when divvying up Congressional seats to each state.

What do the rest of Florida’s members of Congress think? The Tampa Bay Times asked all 29 and its two senators. Here’s what they said (and who didn’t respond).

Sen. Marco Rubio, Republican:

“I personally don’t see the problem with it. I think there’s a lot of noise being made about it,” Rubio said last March.

Sen. Rick Scott, Republican:

On Fox News: “Do we need to ask people if you’re a citizen. Absolutely. That’s how we ought to be deciding how many additional congressmen and women Florida gets, it ought to be based on citizenship. I understand their issue, we lose out some federal funding, but the truth what we really need to think about is we should allocate the dollars based on citizenship. We should allocate congressmen and women based on citizenship.”

Rep. Al Lawson, D-Tallahassee:

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

No. The Constitution says every person living in the U.S. should be counted every 10 years. Further, this is an extreme intimidation tactic by the Trump Administration to under count and disenfranchise immigrant and minority communities.

Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?

Number of residents; It is important to collect accurate census data. Federal funding is determined by the number of people in the districts. While undocumented immigrants can’t receive federal dollars, they affect infrastructure.

Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Winter Park:

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

“I share the concern that adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census would deter some people from responding out of fear that this information could be used to target them for deportation. An inaccurate count of Floridians would result in the loss of federal dollars that fund desperately needed priorities like infrastructure and education. The purpose of the census is to accurately count the number of people in this country. Before moving forward, the Administration should make clear that no one will be punished for their response. I will not support this change unless and until this issue is addressed.”

Rep. Bill Posey, R-Rockledge:

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

“A question on citizenship is already asked under the American Community Survey which is sent to 3 million people annually. The question has also been asked off-and-on in various ways through the main decennial Census survey dating back to the early 1800’s.”

“I oppose inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census."

Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?

"Congressional districts should include all residents to ensure sufficient funding and representation is allocated, since everyone, regardless of citizenship, uses at least some of our infrastructure and federal resources.”

Rep. Val Demings, D-Orlando:

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

“A fair and accurate count of every person in America is required by the Constitution. Including the question is an effort by the GOP to rig the census, which could cost Florida billions of dollars and political power in Washington. Two federal judges have ruled that the question is illegal, internal memos have shown that the administration lied about the question, and recently-discovered documents from a GOP strategist prove that the true reason for the question was that it would be, in his own words, ‘advantageous to Republicans and Non-Hispanic Whites.’ Shameful.”

Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?

“The Constitution clearly states that Congressional apportionment is based on a count of ‘the whole number of persons’ not the number of citizens. Using citizens for apportionment is unconstitutional.”

Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg:

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

"I hope the Supreme Court will do the right thing and reject this overtly partisan effort, designed to suppress the voices of minority communities in the political process. Census numbers dictate how much federal funding we receive, how much political clout Florida has in Congress, it’s a really big deal. The Founders organized our powers of taxation and representation around an accurate count, adding a citizenship question would weaken participation rates, and thus the final tally so much is riding on.”

Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa:

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

“Florida is such a large and diverse state that it is in our best interests to have the most robust and accurate census count. The Census must fully, fairly and accurately count every person in our country, not suppress the count as part of a political game. Last year, I urged Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross to reject adding a citizenship question to the 2020 Census because Florida families and businesses would suffer the consequences. It’s a question that hasn’t been asked since 1950 and experts say it could lead to inaccurate census results and a flawed count of who actually resides in communities across America. In addition, a recent Urban Institute report states that this question, which was added at the last minute, along with underfunding and undertested process changes, could greatly threaten an accurate count for Florida, which would then skew the tax dollars that flow back to communities for education, transportation, housing and more. I am partnering with many groups in our community dedicated to ensuring a ‘Complete Count’ of our neighbors in the 2020 Census because the quality of life for so many in my hometown depends on it.”

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

“Yes, I support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 census. The question was included on the census until 1950 and has been included in other similar surveys, such as the American Communities Survey, since then. The purpose of the census is to count Americans and the inclusion of the question will ensure we have an accurate picture of our population.”

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

“To keep our democracy strong, we must count every voice in every place of the country. A citizenship question is un-constitutional and would reduce the accuracy of the Census. Adding this question is a political move that disenfranchises vulnerable communities.”

Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?

“Basing districts on citizens, not residents, would leave people uncounted. Marginalized communities would be left behind and suffer from a lack of resources, federal funding, and representation in government.”

Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

"No. The census is a critical exercise for the distribution of federal funds to states and local communities. We need an accurate count of where all people live, regardless of their background or their status, to make sure resources and services are provided where they’re needed. "

“Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?”

Number of residents.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

“The inclusion of a citizenship question was devised by Republicans to intentionally suppress Hispanic participation in the Census, and deny their representation in our democracy. Many federal programs use the census to determine distribution of funding. We risk undercounting and thus, underserving people from all walks of life who need services by asking a citizenship question on the census. I do not support it.”

Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?

“The number of residents should determine the apportionment of Congressional districts, since it more accurately reflects the true number of people in our country. There is no citizenship test for obtaining assistance or representation from a U.S. Representative and there should not be a real or implied test in the census. The language of the U.S. Constitution regarding conducting a census makes this goal clear.”

Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami Gardens

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

"I am very much opposed to the inclusion of a citizenship question on the next census and believe it would result in a significant undercount in the communities most in need of resources. Many people do not realize that the census is used to determine how hundreds of billions of federal dollars are distributed each year for programs like Medicaid, SNAP, Pell grants, funding for school districts, and other critical services. An undercount also could cause some states to lose congressional seats. The Trump administration has argued that the citizenship question will help to better enforce the Voting Rights Act, which I always believed was a monstrous lie. Then we find out that Tom Hofeller, the GOP gerrymander king, was the mastermind behind this cynical ploy to give Republicans an electoral advantage.

Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?

I think that apportionment should be based on the number of residents, which is a more accurate representation of the population. If based solely on citizenship, immigrants aren’t the only ones who will lose.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami

Awaiting response.

Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Miami

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

The citizenship question should not be included in the 2020 Census. The Administration’s decision to include the citizenship question is part of a racist agenda to erase people of color and undercount our immigrant community. The census decides how much money our community receives for things like Medicare, infrastructure, schools, and resources people use every day. The citizenship question would likely cause South Florida to be undercounted, resulting in an economic loss we cannot afford.

Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?

Every person who calls this country home must be fairly counted and given a voice in our democracy. As a member of Congress, I represent every person who calls South Florida home, and I have a duty to all of them. Whether they can vote or not they deserve representation in our government.

Rep. Donna Shalala, D-Coral Gables

Do you support the inclusion of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census?

"No, I do not support the citizenship question on the 2020 Census. I am concerned that a citizenship question may lead to considerable undercounting of people in poor and minority communities, as well as be politicized for partisan gain - much to the detriment of the people living in my district, Florida, and the United States.

Do you think apportionment for Congressional districts should be determined by number of citizens in a district or number of residents?

“I believe apportionment should be based on the number of residents. Not all districts are created equal and limiting apportionment to citizenship would set a bad precedent that may not be reflective of a community’s demographics.”
