This is one of those times when I get to say, “I told you so.” For the past 8-years I’ve been calling it right time and time again, and well in advance of the “told you so” events taking place.
Be it on TV, be it on the radio, be it in print or during a speech, I have said a million times that the first president who tries to enforce America’s immigration laws would have just one major obstacle to overcome: the ACLU.
President-elect Trump is not two weeks into his victory and already the ACLU is proving me correct. Because he is promising to enforce the LAWS of the United States of America, the ACLU is promising to take President Trump to court. Here is the statement put out by the ACLU earlier today. Rosie O’Donnell retweeted the announcement.

From the ACLU:
ITS TIME TO FIGHT
All eyes are on America. Donald Trump just won the presidency. And the ACLU will stay vigilant – every single day Trump is in office.
If President-elect Trump tries to turn his unlawful and unconstitutional campaign promises into policy, we’ll see him in court. He’ll have to face the full force of the ACLU – all of our lawyers and advocates in every state – and he’ll have to answer to you.
Get ready to fight with us. Add your name to stand with the ACLU – to take action, to protect all of our rights, and to win battles in the weeks ahead.
We are not an America that tries to forcibly remove 11 million undocumented immigrants, bans the entry of Muslims into our country and aggressively surveils them, or limits the rights of women to access abortion services.
We won’t go back – not on torture, not on freedom of expression, not on reproductive rights, and not on police accountability.
We’ve been defending your rights for nearly 100 years, no matter who is in the White House. Now more than ever, we need you with us.
