Citizenship Status of prospective tenants

I am a Property Manager in San Jose California.  San Jose is a very diverse city and has many undocumented citizens - primarily from Mexico.  Is it legal to ask a prospective tenant his or her citizenship status?  I use an older Lease Application and it does not ask about citizenship.  I have also worked in the mortgage lending industry, and we are required to get all this information as part of the underwriting process.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.
