Seventeen states, the District of Columbia and six cities sued the U.S. government Tuesday, saying the addition of a citizenship question to the census form is unconstitutional, the Associated Press reports. The Trump administration's plan to ask a citizenship question on the 2020 census marks the first time in 70 years the federal government has asked such a question. Tennessee is not currently on the list of states pursuing legal action. California filed a separate lawsuit last week.
