What is wrong with asking people living in the United States if they are a US citizen?
If you are an illegal alien loving Democrat, there is a lot wrong with asking a question about citizenship.
When the Trump administration wanted to add a question about US citizenship on the 2020 Census, Democrats when wild and filed lawsuits to protect their illegal alien voting constituents.
At the request of the Trump administration, the issue of whether or not the 2020 Census is now going before the US Supreme Court.

There is a lot riding on the question such as political district boundaries, revenues and funding.
NPR – A Decade Of Implications At Stake, Supreme Court Hears Census Citizenship Question – The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments Tuesday in a legal battle with lasting implications that could dramatically affect political representation and federal funding over the next decade. The justices are weighing whether to allow the Trump administration to add a question about U.S. citizenship status to forms for the upcoming 2020 census.
In multiple lawsuits brought by dozens of states, cities and other groups, three federal judges at U.S. district courts have issued rulings blocking the administration’s plans for the question. It asks, “Is this person a citizen of the United States?”

The 2020 Census will determine how many seats in the House each state gets for the next 10 years.

Hence the reason Democrats, who also are the ones with sanctuary cities, don’t want the citizenship question on the 2020 Census.
