What Trump is Doing: Civil and Voting Rights
UPDATE FEB. 15 - TRUMP REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEDGE ANTI-SEMITISM
Trump was asked about anti-semitism and instead of directly answering the question, he babbled on about a range of other topics. This is yet another attack on religious freedom, as Trump didn’t mention Jews during Holocaust Remembrance press conference, claiming a lot of other people were killed too.
UPDATE FEB. 14 - ICE CONDUCTING ILLEGAL MASS DEPORTATIONS
Following Trump’s unconstitutional immigration order, Immigration and Customs enforcement has been arresting undocumented immigrants across the United States. They have not released specific details or charges for those arrested in their illegal sweeps causing a lot of fear and confusion in the immigrant community.
After running one of the most racist and misogynistic campaigns in American history, Donald Trump is doubling down now that he’s in the White House.
In one of Trump’s first moves, he appointed Stephen Bannon as his Chief White House Strategist. Bannon, the Chairman of Breitbart News, is best known for making racist, sexist, and anti-semitic comments.
While some didn’t take his proposed ban on Muslims seriously during the campaign, his administration is taking troubling steps. He hasn’t completely banned all Muslims yet, but he has suspended refugee and visa programs for many Muslim countries in the Middle East. His executive order has created chaos and sparked protests at airports across the country.
Trump continues to claim, without any evidence, that “massive voter fraud” is the real reason he lost the popular vote by millions. He’s threatened investigations and suggested that additional restrictions on voting rights might be necessary.
Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked Black Lives Matter demonstrators, and has signaled that he believes it’s police, not the community, that needs his support.
