community groups: A planned question about citizenship that has states suing the federal government isn't on the test, according to Metro News. Several elected officials and leaders of advocacy and community groups this week held an emergency press conference to raise concerns, which include a shortage of publicity around the test and its limited language outreach in an immigrant-heavy county, with large communities from countries including the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Portugal and Cape Verde. Providence County, the state's most populous, is the only place where the Census Bureau is running a full test, after plans to test two other sites this year were cancelled because of a lack of funding from Congress. If we don't get it right here, then the country's not going to get it right, Democratic Lt. Dan McKee warned. Gov. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
