ACLU Comment on Trump's Mass Deportation Instructions
NEW YORK — The Trump administration today released instructions implementing its mass deportation executive orders.
Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, had this reaction:
“These memos confirm that the Trump administration is willing to trample on due process, human decency, the well-being of our communities, and even protections for vulnerable children, in pursuit of a hyper-aggressive mass deportation policy. However, President Trump does not have the last word here — the courts and the public will not allow this un-American dream to become reality.”
