ACLU has taken over 100 legal actions against the Trump administration so far

here's a guide to the most notable ones

Three days after Donald Trump was elected president, the American Civil Liberties Union wrote a memo urging him to reconsider several controversial campaign promises.

Trump's plans to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants, ban Muslims from entering the US, reduce women's access to abortion services, reauthorize torture tactics, and open up libel laws were "not simply un-American and wrong-headed," the ACLU said, but "unlawful and unconstitutional."

"If you do not reverse course and endeavor to make these campaign promises a reality, you will have to contend with the full firepower of the ACLU at your every step," the civil liberties law group cautioned the incoming president.

Trump ignored the warning. The ACLU, in response, has kept its word. On the one-year anniversary of Trump's election, the ACLU wrote a full-page letter in The New York Times, vowing to continue its fight against many of his policies.

2. November 9, 2016, we woke up knowing America was in for

increased attacks on citizens by the thousands from newly encouraged conservative governments at all levels. And that ACLU would be one of the major organizations fighting right back. So we rejoined the national ACLU that morning.
