State attorneys general: No citizenship question on Census

A coalition of state attorneys general is urging the U.S. Department of Commerce to not add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census, saying it could lower participation among immigrants and cause a population undercount. The group sent a letter on Monday to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, saying that adding the question "would fatally undermine the accuracy" of the 2020 count. There was no immediate comment from the Commerce Department.
