California Sues Feds Over Census Citizenship Question

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a lawsuit today against the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 US Census Bureau questionnaire.

The federal Commerce Department announced the change and states it is a better way to get a fully accurate count of citizens. The question of whether you are a US citizen last appeared on the census questionnaire in the 1950’s. Becerra feels the move will make non-citizens more likely to decline filling out the census form, which could result in fewer members of Congress representing California (due to a population drop), and less federal funding to the state.

California is also in a legal battle with the federal government over the creation of sanctuary city laws that help protect immigrants in the country illegally.
