    There will be no executive order to add the citizenship question on the census.

    The citizenship question won't be on the census.

    trump has given up trying to put it on the census and says he will have the commerce department will get a count of undocumented people another way.

    So the republican scheme of trying to cheat is stopped. This time.

    Trump expected to end his fight to add citizenship question to census, sources say

    Cheat? Why is knowing who has citizenship cheating? I would say keeping that info from Americans is cheating.

    I have no dog in this fight but the citizenship question does seem very sensible to me.

    Trying to cheat? On what? Every freaking country in the civilized world counts citizens and aliens in their census and America used to do it until Obama did away with the long form. It seems to me that Justice Roberts allowed the democrats to cheat.

    the Census question should give an option to specify or not specify
    citizenship, and STATE that this is optional.

    So if people don't want to answer it, they don't have to.

    Then have an agreement that those who DO answer
    that they are citizens can be documented in one count.

    And additional answers that didn't specify if they were citizens
    can be documented in another count.

    Any agency that wants to count both, can do so.
    Any agency that only wants to count claimed citizens can also just focus there.

    Just make it clear it's not required to answer that question
    so there is no pressure on people who may be afraid their answer
    will get them in trouble.

    That's true.

    It's hard to know what is true from that man.

    It's near 5pm in the east. If trump was going to do that EO and announce it, he would have done it by now. So I'm more inclined to believe the article.

    It's good news.
