NY Joins Lawsuit Over Question on Citizenship on 2020 Census

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is joining with 18 other states, six cities, and the U.S. Conference of Mayors to file suit against the Trump administration. 

The idea is to stop plans to include a question about citizenship on the 2020 census form. 

It would be the first time since 1950 that everyone would be required to disclose their citizenship...or non-citizenship.

The Trump administration argues that the citizenship information is needed to protect minority voting rights.
