The state of California filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration last night over the decision to add a question about citizenship to the 2020 Census, The Washington Post reports. Today, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced that he would lead a multi-state lawsuit to fight the measure. California’s lawsuit alleges that the change violates the constitutional requirement of “actual enumeration” of every person in every state, every 10 years.
