The American Civil Liberties Union said it received $24.1 million in online donations over the weekend.
In a normal year, the activist group makes about $4 million in online donations. In one weekend, it raised six times as much money.
Officials at the ACLU said they were stunned and gratified by the surge in financial support.
It came on the same weekend that the ACLU and its allies successfully challenged portions of President Trump's travel ban in court.
ACLU racks up $24.1 million in donations over weekend - Jan. 30, 2017

More than a few people concerned about President Trump's over-reach...

Anyone that donates any amount of money to the ACLU would be better off flushing it down the toilet.

Well then, at least taxpayers won't have to foot the legal bills.

Actually we will. Who do you think pays to defend Trump's idiotic positions?

Sounds like they are getting quite rich. Should probably be audited.

It's always interesting to note who is opposed to an organization which protects Civil Liberties...

And while taxpayer money to our government SHOULD be what protects us from civil rights violations, considering it's the government that often does that violation it shouldn't be unreasonable for taxpayers to pay for services they get...

Using the IRS as a weapon, eh?
Why am I not surprised...

Amazing the left thinks people who are not here yet but want to come here now have civil rights??

Trump will crush the ACLU, especially after tonight when he selects his SCOTUS appointment. Not only that but he controls the DOJ..

Soon we shall see America in a new and much better light.

White Democrats, I thank you for your votes.

Regards, Kirk
