President Trump will sign an executive order forcing a controversial issue of citizenship into the 2020 census, despite a Supreme Court ruling going against the government.
Trump has insisted that the court share his disdain for the motives of his government and the trial, but never said he could not include the question in the questionnaire that was valid once every ten years for distributing convention districts and federal aid.
The president said in a morning report that he would hold a press conference on the subject on Thursday afternoon.
White House officials could not say what is in the order that Trump expects to sign, since he welcomes more than a hundred conservatives to the White House for a social media summit.
Larry Kudlow, the chief economic adviser to the president, declined to comment when DailyMail.com saw him in the driveway after a TV appearance. He said he doesn't know & # 39; much & # 39; about the executive action.
After confusion as to whether or not the government would follow a route that would bypass the SCOTUS ruling, the president will sign an executive order
The White House schedule does not mention a press conference, but Trump says he has one
Conservatives support Trump in his attempt to ask every household in America if his inhabitants are citizens of the country.
The House Freedom Caucus, a group of the most conservative legislators in Congress, said it supported its bid to find a legal route for the proposition.
& # 39; This is a critical problem and a common sense proposal, supported by a large majority of Americans. We would like to know how many American citizens live in America, & the group said.
Landlord Nancy Pelosi said Monday that Trump wants to add a citizenship question to next year's Census, because he wants to whitewash America again & # 39 ;.
The Californian democrat says the administration at the federal court fought to insert the question because it would have a hair-raising effect on who answers.
Census office experts and question critics say it discourages people living illegally in the United States, including large numbers of migrants from Central America, from responding.
The Supreme Court has temporarily blocked the inclusion of the question and Department of Justice legal attorneys involved in the lawsuits contesting the question in the country filed a motion to withdraw on Monday.
A former DOJ lawyer said the recordings were likely because the lawyers were likely to have difficulty with the argument of citizenship within the limits of ethics and within the limits of the law.
& # 39; The Supreme Court did not judge in their favor because they said the administration did not provide sufficient evidence as to why the issue of citizenship should be there & # 39 ;, said Pelosi.
Pelosi said Monday that if people do not complete their census forms, the administration will win.
The Census is used to distribute conference seats and government funds.
Undermining migrants would shift federal representation and dollars from areas where they live.
& # 39; This is about & # 39; make America white again & # 39;, & # 39; said Pelosi. & # 39; They [the Trump administration] want to make sure that certain people are counted. It is really disgraceful and it is not what our founders had in mind.
& # 39; And what they want to do is give a hair-raising effect, so certain populations will not answer the form. They will not respond. And we say they don't get that victory. & # 39;
She added: & # 39; You must answer. Because they win differently. & # 39;

The Trump administration said the question was added to help enforce the law on voting rights, which protects minority voters' access to the polls. But in the decision of the Supreme Court last week, Supreme Court John Roberts joined the four more liberal members of the court by saying that the current justification of the administration for the question & # 39; seems to have been made up & # 39 ;.
After the ruling, a spokesperson for the department confirmed on July 2 that there is no question of citizenship about the 2020 census & # 39; would be.
In what seemed to be a sign that the Trump administration ended the legal battle, Trade Minister Wilbur Ross said in a statement that day that the & # 39; Census Bureau started the process of printing the ten-year questionnaires without the question & # 39 ;.
But the next day, Trump seemed to overrule that ruling, causing him confusion that Hazel and US district judge Jesse Furman, who oversaw a census lawsuit in New York, demanded clarification.
& # 39; The news reports about the Ministry of Commerce that have abandoned its search to ask the Citizenship question about the Census is incorrect or, to put it another way, FAKE! We are absolutely forward, and we must do so, due to the importance of answering this question, & # 39; tweeted Trump on July 3.

But the next day, Trump seemed like that statement controversial, tweeting & # 39; we are definitely ahead & # 39;
After confusion as to whether or not the government would follow a route that would bypass the SCOTUS ruling, many members of the DOJ Legal Subsidiary Teams assigned to federal court cases related to citizen question filed court documents that occurred on Monday trying to retreat.
A Justice Department official said on Monday that a top-level lawyer from the department, John Burnham, will no longer lead the dispute.
NPRthe national correspondent handling the 2020 census reported the changes late on Monday in a Twitter thread Show DOJ attorneys withdrawing from the census cases in California, New York and Maryland.
& # 39; Reassigning the trial team at this stage of the lawsuit is – to make sure it doesn't come out too well – insane & # 39 ;, said Sam Oliker-Friedland, former lawyer of the DOJ Civil Rights Division.
& # 39; I suspect that it is a move from a Justice Department that serves a client who asks them to do something that they think is very difficult to do within the limits of ethics and within the limits of the law. & # 39;
Oliker-Friedland joined the Civil Rights Division of DOJ under former President Barack Obama and left after Trump took office.
& # 39; If you complete a lawsuit in the middle of a lawsuit, and certainly for an entire office that has to take off in the middle of a lawsuit, that would not only be due to personal disagreement with a particular policy choice, & # 39; asked a former DOJ lawyer not to be identified because fear that speaks can jeopardize the lawyer's current job.
& # 39; It should be slightly more extreme than that, more to the core of what your ethical and professional obligations are as a lawyer. & # 39;
