ACLU to Trump: ‘If you implement your policies, we’ll see you in court’

In an open letter on its website this Wednesday, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced that it has a message for president-elect Donald Trump. The letter urges Trump to “reconsider and change course on certain campaign promises” he’s made.”

“These include your plan to amass a deportation force to remove 11 million undocumented immigrants; ban the entry of Muslims into our country and aggressively surveil them; punish women for accessing abortion; reauthorize waterboarding and other forms of torture; and change our nation’s libel laws and restrict freedom of expression.”

The letter goes on to slam Trump’s proposals as being “wrong-headed” and “unlawful and unconstitutional,” as well as violating the “First, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth, and 14th Amendments.”

If you do not reverse course and instead endeavor to make these campaign promises a reality, you will have to contend with the full firepower of the ACLU at every step.

One thing is certain: We will be eternally vigilant every single day of your presidency. And when you leave the Oval Office, we will do the same with your successor as we have done throughout our nearly 100 years of existence. The Constitution and the rule of law are stronger than any one person, and we will see to that. We will never waver.

    Selbige Uhren sind wirklich billig, und nicht mehr als 2-3 Wochen dauern. Also ein wenig mehr ausgeben sowie kaufen Sie eine gute Qualit?t Replik-Uhr , die lange dauern würde sowie sehen price aus. St?bern ein paar Webseiten , bevor Sie eine Auswahl für bessere Kauf.

    Kevin Craig sounds like a boorish oaf. He voted for the garden bridge despite loads of local people asking him to support them opposing it. He just wants Kate’s job but he’s not popular. He’s a millionaire which isn’t relevant either but he doesn’t help because he cares about others.just himself
