ACLU Response to Trump Election Commission Executive Order

President Trump signed an executive order on May 11 that establishes a so-called “Presidential Commission on Election Integrity.” The ACLU filed a Freedom of Information Act request that same day seeking information that the Trump administration is using as the basis for its voter fraud claims. The commission vice chair is Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, whom the ACLU has successfully challenged in court numerous times over his voter suppression policies.
