ACLU Raises More Than $24 million

Riverside, CA

During any given year, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has raised as much as four million dollars. This weekend, however, in the wake of President Donald Trump’s executive order that placed a temporary ban on immigration, ACLU online contributions exploded. The organization received more than $24 million in online contributions in a single weekend—six times what it normally collects in a year and membership enrollment has spiked as well. ACLU officials were surprised and grateful for the unexpected increase in financial support. The ACLU took Trump to federal court late Saturday over his restrictions on immigrants and refugees coming to America. 

The judge granted a stay that barred U.S. officials from deporting those detained in airports with legal documents. This action allowed them to enter the U.S. despite Trump’s executive order; however, the stay did not invalidate the entire order or guarantee there will not be other airport detentions related to it.
