- Saying that they're afraid of an undercount, at least a dozen states say they don't want to be part of any U.S. Census that asks people, "Are you a U.S. citizen?" The New York Times reports the states are threatening to sue the Trump administration over its plans to ask people about their citizenship in the 2020 census.
