Here is my reasoning: ". . .the corp *must* cease movement and declare an attack" "Any forces or portion of forces upon whom an attack is declared
may *immediately* retire . . ." (emphasis mine)

I believe that immediately means that as soon as a corp is moved
into a province, the defender has to choose to go into the city or not
before the rest of the movement is completed (including foraging).
