Will issue Executive Order requiring federal agencies to turn over citizenship information

Trump in press conference: “We are not backing down on our effort to determine the citizenship” of US residents…”We will defend the right of the American people to know the full facts…it is essential that we have a clear breakdown of citizens and non-citizens.”
