The American Civil Liberties Union sure didn’t give a shit when Hillary Clinton was promising to abolish the 2nd Amendment and confiscate guns, but boy are they on Donald Trump’s ass because he intends to enforce the law. The faux civil rights issued a threat to the president-elect because, among other things, he plans to deport illegal aliens, which the ACLU claims is unconstitutional.
The ACLU wasted no time in telling the newly elected Trump that they would “see him in court” if he does any of the things he campaigned on:
President-elect Trump, as you assume the nation’s highest office, we urge you to reconsider and change course on certain campaign promises you have 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.
Illegal aliens have no right to be in this country nor do they have any right to not be deported. No one, and that includes Muslims, has a right to enter our country; that is a privilege. Trump never said he would punish women for getting abortions; he said hypothetically if abortion was outlawed that women getting abortions would be breaking the law, which is true. Waterboarding is not torture; it’s an enhanced interrogation technique. If our nations libel laws were changed they would have to meet the scrutiny of Constitutionality without any temper tantrums from the ACLU.
So despite the fact that everything the ACLU is threatening to sue Trump over is a non-issue and/or completely Constitutional, they claim massive civil rights violations:
These proposals are not simply un-American and wrong-headed, they are unlawful and unconstitutional. They violate the First, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth, and 14th Amendments.
Even though I’m familiar with all of these amendments, I went back and read them again just in case I missed something. Not one of theses amendments guarantees the rights of foreigners to illegally enter this country or shield them from deportation. None of these amendments guarantee the rights of foreigners to enter this country in any way. Muslims from terrorist nations simply do not have a right to come to the US.
Even crazier is the idea that securing our borders against terrorists and third-world scumbags is un-American. Allowing foreigners to overrun our country and displace our culture is un-American, but protecting our sovereignty is American as hell.
The ACLU is as unconcerned with facts as they are with the law, so they assure Trump that they will sue him any chance they get:
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. Our staff of litigators and activists in every state, thousands of volunteers and millions of card-carrying members and supporters are ready to fight against any encroachment on our cherished freedoms and rights.
In other words, the ACLU is going to clog up our court system for Trump’s entire presidency with frivolous nonsense lawsuits because they really wanted Hillary to win the election.
The ACLU is planning suing Trump for enforcing our nation’s existing immigration laws, which are in no way unconstitutional. Meanwhile, several states including California have passed unconstitutional gun control laws and the ACLU has announced no similar plans to sue. That’s everything you need to know about how full of shit these civil rights champions are.
