Minnesota will join with other states in a lawsuit to block the Trump administration's decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census questionnaire.
Vermont's Secretary of State says he doesn't support adding a citizenship question on the 2020 census. "And again, this is something that has been part of the census for decades and something that the Department of Commerce felt strongly needed to be included again".
THE FACTS: Sanders is incorrect.
ThinkProgress reached out to the Department of Commerce (DOC) about the Brookings report. "It's basic common sense for the federal government to get an accurate tally of the citizenship status of people who live in the United States", said Donovan. My analysis of recent American Community Survey data shows that if just 15% of the noncitizen population did not respond to the census, California and New York-two big immigrant states-would each lose an additional congressional seat (to the benefit of Colorado and Montana), with more apportionment shifts occurring at higher rates of nonresponse.
In 1960, there was no such question about citizenship, only about place of birth. Those factors explain why IL is one of at least 11 states that are gearing up to sue to keep the Trump administration from including the citizenship question in the census.

The Census Bureau has released the list of the questions it plans to ask on the upcoming 2020 Census.
Between 1820 and 1950, a total of 14 censuses were held.
Sanders said that in 2010 the citizenship question was removed. The Trump administration has made a decision to include in the census a question about citizenship status. "Therefore, the citizenship question has been well tested". On Monday, she called the decision "deeply troubling and reckless".
THE FACTS: It's true the question has been asked before in surveys sent to a portion of USA households. In response, 12 states have sued the administration. "It has also been asking about citizenship for many years now". Plus, Marion said, there's also a lot of federal money on the line. But we can not leave it at that: those who will be most affected by the decision-including residents of states like North Carolina - must demand a comprehensive, accurate, and fully funded Census from President Trump and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.

On December 12, 2017, DOJ requested that the Census Bureau reinstate a citizenship question on the decennial census to provide census block level citizenship voting age population (CVAP) data that is not now available from government surveys.
Census data is used to determine federal funding levels, meaning inaccurate counts could impact states' appropriations. It helps guide health policy, allocate resources, representation and governance.Citizenship has nothing to do with voting rights as the Justice Department claims.
The obvious intent of including a citizenship question in the census is to discourage immigrants - especially those who are undocumented - from participating in the count.
Civil rights groups and state attorney generals have charged that the change is politically motivated and will result in a detrimental undercount. Given the geography of American politics, that would probably lead to more power for Republicans and less for Democrats.

The Postal Service's biggest money problem is that it has billions in retirement obligations to its workers that it can't afford. Another source called the president's view of Amazon's relationship with the US Postal Service "inaccurate".
