Local Hispanic advocates question citizenship declaration on census forms

As the U.S. Supreme Court debates whether a question of citizenship can be added to the 2020 census forms, local Hispanic advocates say such a question will not just impact Hispanic families.  It will also impact dairy farms and hospitality businesses in Kewaunee and Door Counties and throughout the state.  Imelda Delchambe, with the Hispanic Resource Center of Door and Kewaunee Counties, says such a question on census forms will likely not be answered by those in the U.S. illegally.  She also says it will only add to the stresses legal and illegal workers feel daily.



Delchambre says many businesses that hire illegals would face problems filling jobs now filled by such workers.
