The modern day debate over how best to fairly secure America's borders is growing absurd in the Trump era.
Much of the reasoning for this is a democratically held belief that agreeing with Donald Trump, on anything, will cost you votes among the radical leftists of the voter base. It's a carte blanche opposition to everything the President wishes to accomplish, and it has several prominent democrats backtracking on their own beliefs regarding immigration, border security, and the enforcement efforts of ICE and CBP.
Now the ACLU is getting involved with a lawsuit that would effectively nullify enforcement of the already existing laws regarding immigration.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on Thursday in an attempt to stop the Trump administration from enforcing federal immigration law with a planned roundup on Sunday of illegal migrants who have not appeared at deportation hearings.
Their statement was predictably vague.
“For the many families who came here as refugees fleeing violence, deportation is a death threat,” Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, saidin a news release, according to the New York Post.
“We will fight to ensure no one faces this kind of peril without having their case considered in court,” Lieberman said.
The lawsuit also made the assumption that those targeted in the coming raids were likely seeking asylum in the United States - an act that, if done through the proper legal channels, would not result in deportation.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
