NEW YORK —(ENEWSPF)–December 8, 2015. The American Civil Liberties Union admonished Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his call to bar Muslims from entering the United States.
ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero said:
“Donald Trump’s proposal to bar Muslims from entering our country based solely on their faith is blatantly unlawful and fundamentally un-American. We are a nation of immigrants, many of whom came to this country to escape prejudice and discrimination. We urge all of our political leaders to categorically reject this dangerous escalation of hateful rhetoric because it undermines our core American values.”
