Aryeh Spero Biography

Title:
Rabbi and President of Caucus for America
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“Any neutral observer can’t help but see the blatant selectivity groups such as the ACLU use when deciding whose “rights” are worthy of defense, concerned, apparently, not for ordinary law-abiding citizens but mostly the hardened criminals, illegal aliens and, now, terrorists. The Non-American Civil Liberties Union is a more apt description of their mission.”
