What is Trump allowed to do?
After 9/11 Bush made the NSEERS to target Muslims entering US and register Muslims.
Was legal, listed as a way to vet people entering from “high risk” countries, not religion.
Trump can do it via executive order and the department of Homeland Security
What does the Department of Homeland Security do?
Goal is to protect the country from terrorism using immigration laws, tight borders, etc.
Possible head David Clarke (Trump appointee)- African- American, anti-Black Lives Matter, told people to arm themselves
Idea of NSEERS was headed by Kris Kobach, Trump just met with him
What does Trump want to do?
Trump has not specifically endorsed a registry, said it would not be a bad idea
Campaign has stated that he does not support this, Trump did not specifically say he does not
Met with Kobach
Executive order, Congress can divert funds though
The Supreme Court can rule the act unconstitutional, but it lasted 9 years before
