President Trump is not backing down in his fight to determine the citizenship status of everyone in the U.S. While speaking from the Rose Garden, he announced other methods the federal government can use to obtain the information as he will no longer pursue efforts to get a citizenship question on the 2020 census. The president outlined how he will get an accurate count of non-citizens and citizens in the U.S., and said the measure will be “far more accurate than a census question.” He also slammed far-left Democrats for trying to conceal the number of illegal aliens in our communities.
