The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has prepared a memorandum offering possible responses on immigration policy if President Trump returns to the White House.

The memo begins:

"[W]e focus on three areas of significant threats to immigrants and the U.S. communities and families they are a part of, should Trump be elected to a second term. The first is mass deportation: A central promise of Trump’s 2024 campaign is to `carry out the largest domestic deportation operation in American history' once in office. Second, we explore some of Trump’s and his surrogates’ plans to target the core rights of children and families: attacking birthright citizenship, barring undocumented children from schools, and again forcibly separating children from their parents at the border. Finally, we will turn to the Trump team’s strategy to dismantle our nation’s asylum protection system and attack human rights at the border." (bold added).
