A frivolous lawsuit against Trump's census question

A new lawsuit by liberal state attorneys general is trying to stop the Trump administration asking people whether they are citizens on the 2020 census.

This was as inevitable as night following day. But can this case be taken seriously, and should it be?

It may be that the citizenship question simply encourages people to lie. But it cannot be reasonably claimed to violate anyone's constitutional powers or rights. If you don't like it, pass a law. If you can't pass a law, too bad.
