The American President analyzes the state of America and the ACLU grumbles about the word that is in their own name!
In a letter responding to the State of the Union address, the ACLU grumbles that Donald Trump said “America” over eighty times. Are they insane? Also, the letter claims that Trump’s policies “have harmed so many vulnerable American communities” and then mentions the “harmful border wall.” Who is harmed by a wall between Mexico and the United States? Does the ACLU now define Mexico as a vulnerable American community?
CNS News reports, “ACLU Complains: ‘Trump Used the Word ‘America’ More Than 80 Times’”
In a written response to Trump’s speech, Faiz Shakir, the ACLU’s national political director, said:
Tonight, President Trump said the word ‘America’ more than 80 times in his speech. Yet, after a divisive first year, we hear and feel how exclusionary that ‘America’ is, with policies that have harmed so many vulnerable American communities. The ACLU stands ready to protect these communities, both in the courts and at the polls.
In particular, the immigration plan put forth by Trump would hold Dreamers hostage to his demands for a harmful border wall and an even larger mass deportation force.
