Trump Decides Not to Add Citizenship Question to 2020 Census


(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he is not planning to add the citizenship question to the 2020 Census.

Instead, he is issuing an executive order directing federal agencies to provide the Commerce Department with any relevant information about the number of U.S. citizens and non-citizens in America.

“Today I’m here to say we are not backing down on our effort to determine the citizenship status of the United States population. I stand before you to outline new steps my administration is taking to ensure that citizenship is counted so that we know how many citizens we have in the United States,” the president said in a White House Rose Garden press conference.
