The election of Donald Trump poses the greatest risk to civil rights since Antonin Scalia was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1986. Under a Trump administration, racial and religious profiling will flourish and our civil rights, which have been protected by the Obama Justice Department, are at great risk. As recently reported in the Baltimore Sun, “After serving as an aggressive watchdog for police misconduct during the Obama administration, the Department of Justice could see its role diminished under Donald Trump, analysts say.”
Trump, the self-styled “law and order” candidate, said during the campaign that he would reintroduce the controversial stop-and-frisk policies criticized by President Barack Obama’s Justice Department in cities across the country. Rudy Giuliani, a top Trump adviser and campaign surrogate, has been a champion of the tactic since his tenure as mayor of New York during the 1990s. He has been mentioned as a possible Trump pick for attorney general.
