FILE-- Protesters outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington before its ruling on the Trump administration's efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, June 27, 2019. The Trump administration said on July 2 that it would be printing forms for the 2020 census without the question asking about citizenship, abandoning its quest to add the query after being blocked a week earlier by the U.S. Supreme Court.

WASHINGTON - Days after the U.S. Supreme Court halted the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census, the U.S. Census Bureau on Tuesday started the process of printing the questionnaire without the controversial query.

Trump administration attorneys notified parties in lawsuits challenging the question that the printing of the hundreds of millions of documents for the 2020 counts would be starting, said Kristen Clarke, executive director of the National Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
