2020 Census: US states sue over citizenship question

New York, California and other states have vowed to stop US government from asking every American household to record which members of their family are US citizens.

Several states in the United States are suing the Trump administration over what will be included in the next census.

They are arguing against a question which asks people if they are US citizens.

Many say it is not a way to understand the make-up of the country, but rather, an attempted power grab.
