What will happen if you refuse to answer the census citizenship question?

Washington TimesPeople who refuse to answer the citizenship question on the 2020 census are breaking the law — but there is little chance they will be fined, much less sent to jail, for their obstinacy.

It has been nearly a half-century since anyone was prosecuted for refusing to answer, and legal analysts say the law is now more of a prompt than a threat backed by punishments.

I'm perfectly OK with sending ICE agents to follow up on unanswered census inquiries, at least for this question.
