Below is a statment from Colleen Connell, Executive Director, ACLU of Illinois on the Trump Administration's latest attack on the Muslim community:
“This morning, the President of the United States again demeaned our country, this time posting unverified and irrelevant videos promoted by dangerous far-right extremists that have been condemned as untruthful by the government of Great Britain.
The President is wrong to fuel hatred based on religion. It is un-American.
The ACLU of Illinois stands with the Muslim community and is ready to challenge any policies by the Trump Administration that singles out our friends and neighbors based on their faith.”
