The ACLU’s Constitutional Analysis of the Public Statements and Policy Proposals of Donald Trump

Donald Trump's statements and policy proposals would blatantly violate the inalienable rights guaranteed by the Constitution. We have undertaken an analysis of his most controversial policy proposals. These include his pledges to deport over 11 million undocumented immigrants, to ban Muslims from entering the United States, to surveil American Muslims and their houses of worship, to torture again, and to revise libel laws.
