Election Day is only a week away, and millions across the U.S. are holding their breath. Donald Trump’s threats to enact sweeping, indiscriminate bans on Muslims and to deport millions of undocumented immigrants have sent waves of alarm through the country. Politicians are terrified of what his proposals would do to national security.
