From the Wall Street Journal:
Census Bureau calls for New Middle Eastern, Hispanic Categories

Such changes are significant because they shape how the U.S. tracks demographic change and can influence federal funding

The U.S. Census Bureau on Tuesday moved toward counting Middle Eastern people in the country for the first time, setting up a potential clash over how much the federal government knows about Americans from that part of the world.

Please put this on hold, Mr. Trump. Get your own people in there to think this through before implementing it. These kinds of changes have subtle but long term effects. This was a plan put together by the Obama Administration. It was not concocted with the best interests of the Republican Party or the American people in mind.
