Will there be a question about citizenship on the 2020 Census survey?

Maybe. Right now, civil rights organizations and 17 states and the District of Columbia are suing to block the Trump Administration from adding a citizenship question. The Census hasn't included a question about citizenship on the form that goes to all households since 1950. It's not necessary, and in fact, there's evidence that the people behind this initiative have a racist agenda and their goal is to create fear and keep immigrant communities from being fully counted.
