Civil rights lawyer Thomas Stauber argues that Trump’s moves could cause “an existential threat” to the American civil rights movement.
Stauber says, in a report released Monday, that “it is hard to overstate the gravity of the threat posed by Trump’s actions.”
The report was released in conjunction with a new report titled, “Trump and the Rise of American Racism.”
The paper, written by a team of civil rights lawyers, identifies a number of Trump’s efforts to undermine the civil rights laws that are widely seen as a model for other countries.
According to the report, Trump has: The Fully Loaded Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is under fire for its comments in support of President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries, including Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia.
The ADL is the nation’s largest Jewish, Muslim, and Sikh civil rights group.
The ADLC’s statements have angered Jewish leaders, who have called on the organization to sever ties with the ADL and disavow the ADLC.
Trump has repeatedly called for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration to the United States and has made several other inflammatory statements, including one that drew a comparison between Muslims and terrorists.
In February, a federal judge in San Francisco temporarily blocked Trump’s travel ban.
