States sue Trump over Census change

By: Sydney Sayre

Approximately 12 states are suing the Trump administration after President Donald Trump decided to add a question to the United States Census. The states believe that the question is unconstitutional.

The question that is being added is for the respondents to answer if they are a citizen or not. Those who are here under visas or are foreign born take place in the Census as well. Some argue that the question would offer an accurate number of people in the United States. Others say that the question would result in many illegal immigrants not answering, thus giving the Census an inaccurate number.

Social studies teacher Jo Phillips said, “I understand why they have added it to the Census, and if you are here legally, it shouldn’t be an issue. However, I worry it will cause us to have an inaccurate count of who is here, which will affect representation in our government.”

The purpose of the Census is to get an accurate number of the amount of people within the United States. The Census is mandatory by law; however, the U.S. Census Bureau hasn’t prosecuted since 1970. A man in Hawaii was prosecuted then, but his fine and charges were overturned when he provided logical reasons for not filling out the questionnaire. It is not required that you answer all the questions now, though it is encouraged to fill all of them out. It has been proven that Census is more accurate when people are required to do the Census instead of doing it voluntarily.

The suing states include Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Washington according to the New York Times. Officials in these states say they will join the effort to have the question removed.

The next Census occurs every ten years and will take place again in 2020.
