DOJ officials left room in debate to reconsider privacy around census citizenship question

(CNN)A Justice Department attorney suggested a Trump administration official answer vaguely when asked if the Census Bureau would share the answers to the controversial citizenship question with law enforcement, according to documents filed in court.

The filing renews the chief concern that critics of the citizenship question have raised: that it could be used by immigration authorities to find and deport undocumented immigrants.
The documents show the attorney advised an assistant attorney general in June to “not directly address the question” in case the administration decides to look for a way around strict privacy protections.
