They have no case. The civil rights of AMERICANS are not bieng violated, therfore the ACLU's involvement is rhetorical at best.

They're the ACLU....that's what they do. Are you surprised? You shouldn't be. The ACLU is pretty much going to do anything it can to 'go against the system', and cause the maximum 'annoyance' it possibly can to the largest number of people.

An easy way to guess what the ACLU will do in ANY given situation is to ask yourself, "what would an angry, rebellious 12-year old do in this case ?" That's almost always what the ACLU will do....

Angry, rebellious 12-year olds LOVE to make a 'scene', LOVE being the center of attention, LOVE to 'push the envelope', and LOVE to annoy the 'grownups' in any way they can. So does the ACLU.

A person commits a felony by forging federal documents to live and work here illegally, and the government is accused of "separating families."

It's nothing new, but
