Trump orders federal agencies to hand over citizenship data


Are you a citizen of the
United States of America? Oh gee, I’m sorry. I just
can’t answer that question and that’s after spending
billions and billions of dollars. 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 will be issuing an executive
order to put this very plan into effect immediately. I am hereby ordering every
department agency and the federal government to
provide the department of commerce with all requested records
regarding the number of citizens and non-citizens in our country. They must furnish all legally
accessible record in their possession immediately. We will utilise these vast
federal databases to gain a full, complete and
accurate count of the non-citizen population,
including databases maintained by the department
of homeland security and the social security
administration. We have great knowledge
in many of our agencies. We will leave no stone unturned. – I applaud the president
for recognising in his executive order that including a question on
the census is not the only way to obtain this vital information. The course that the president
has chosen today will bring unprecedented resources
to bear on determining how many citizens and non-citizens
are in our country, and will yield the best data
the government has had on citizenship in many decades
