The article asserts that Angelo Falcon, president of the U.S. National Institute for Latino Policy (NILP), supports the plan of U.S. President Barack Obama's administration to transfer oversight of the U.S. Census Bureau from the Department to the White House. Falcon asserts that Commerce Secretary Judd Greg might politicize the census process through insufficient budget funding of hard-to-poll community count. The author alleges that Falcon is manipulating the results of the census through the criticism of Greg.
