It’s breaking right now that will announce today some sort of executive action that will add the citizenship question to the 2020 census:
POLITICO – President Donald Trump is expected to announce that he will take executive action to add a citizenship question to the census, intensifying the legal battle around the controversial effort.
Two people familiar with the matter said Trump will unveil his plans during a news conference Thursday afternoon in the Rose Garden.
Well this should be interesting.
Although at the moment, there’s sill a lot of ambiguity around what Trump will actually be announcing…
A source confirms that President Trump plans to announce some sort of executive action on the Census citizenship question this afternoon at a press conference. That source said it could be a number of actions like an executive order, a presidential memorandum or something else.

I would assume that whatever Trump announces, it will be in conjunction with what AG Barr had mentioned the other day regarding a new strategy to add the citizenship question to the census.
We’ll bring you the press conference this afternoon when it happens.
