Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Monday defended the Trump administration’s decision to add a controversial citizenship question to the 2020 census, saying he didn’t think the addition would mean the "sky will fall.

“We’re also putting the citizenship question last so that someone who, for whatever reason, feels uncomfortable with that question, at least they can deal easily with the questions with which they are not uncomfortable,” Ross added. They have argued that including the question would depress participation in immigrant communities, with significant electoral and other ramifications.
