States and 7 Cities Sue Census Bureau Over New 2020 Citizenship Question

An undercount would significantly affect the funding. "This is a blatant effort to undermine the Census, and to prevent the Census Bureau from carrying out its clear Constitutional mandate".

The lawsuit deems the move to add a citizenship question as an "unconstitutional and arbitrary decision".

The Census Bureau already conducts a survey asking the question, but the administration said including it on the once-per-decade count of everyone in the country would help enforce voting rights laws aimed at protecting minorities. The resulting undercount would deprive immigrant communities of fair representation when legislative seats are apportioned and district lines are drawn.

The Trump administration's decision to ask people about their citizenship has set off worries among Democrats that immigrants will dodge the survey altogether, diluting political representation for states that tend to vote Democratic and robbing many communities of federal dollars. This proposal would then limit funds created to support some of the most vulnerable populations in each state, including low-income communities, the elderly, and children-regardless of citizenship. The local census is also known as a resident listing.
