    Mass. Secretary of State Lauds Dropping of Census Question

    Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin is welcoming the decision by the U.S. Census Bureau to start printing the 2020 Census without the addition of a citizenship question.

    Tuesday's announcement came days after the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the question.

    Galvin has argued that the question could discourage residents of Massachusetts who aren't citizens from responding to the questionnaire -- which could depress the state's population count.

    The Democrat said he's still worried that all the attention given to the citizenship question could still keep non-citizens from being counted.

    NBC released footage in its archives from 1992 of Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein at a party at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The video shows them laughing and pointing as they appear to talk about women at the event, NBC News reported. Trump has said he knew Epstein, but “was not a fan” and they have not spoken in 15 years.

    Galvin said Tuesday that his office is planning an outreach effort to immigrants who may be fearful about responding to the census.

    He said an accurate count will help ensure Massachusetts gets its share of federal money.
