The law was introduced in March of this year, and it has been used in the past to jail activists and journalists.
It has not yet been used against Trump or any other politician, and the administration has not said when it will use it.
The US has more than 30 active hate crimes laws that could be used to punish journalists, including a statute that was signed into law in March 2017 that makes it a crime to harass or intimidate a journalist.
But critics argue that the laws are being used in a way that can be used against anyone who is not a journalist or activist.
“There are many journalists, politicians, and other media organizations who have been targeted with hate speech charges because of their reporting on political issues, and they have been intimidated and harassed by authorities because of it,” said Anna S. Schwartz, executive director of the nonprofit Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.
“The threat of such prosecutions is real, and must end.”
A recent poll found that 78% of Americans support the government cracking down on hate speech.
The number of journalists arrested in the US has risen in recent years, with the number of convictions for hate speech rising from 5,977 in 2014 to 13,069 in 2017.
Many of the hate crimes are related to the coverage of the presidential election.
A few of the cases were linked to Trump and his campaign.
In April, a white supremacist, Matthew Heimbach, was arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely.
Heimbach had posted on a white nationalist forum that Erdele should “fuck off” in 2017, and he had also threatened to kill the reporter who had exposed him to her.
Hellerman and several other journalists were arrested in May after they tried to cover the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
They were charged with harassment and false reporting and were released on bail in October.
An unnamed journalist was arrested in October in New York City after he wrote about the Trump administration’s handling of a rape investigation.
This reporter was detained at JFK Airport in October for several hours while attempting to leave New York, and authorities later arrested him for allegedly making a false statement.
Authorities charged another journalist in June after he allegedly tried to film the inauguration in New Jersey and was detained for nearly two hours.
Other journalists were charged in the aftermath of the violence that followed the election, including CNN’s Jim Acosta and NBC’s Brian Williams.
CNN, NBC, and Williams have all been placed on leave.
According to an NBC News analysis of hate crime data, over the past three years, at least 3,300 journalists have been charged under hate crimes statutes in the United States.
These cases have included harassment, false reporting, and false imprisonment, among other charges.
Last week, the New York Times reported that at least 11 reporters and media organizations have been detained by law enforcement in recent weeks for refusing to leave their homes or work.
During the campaign, Trump threatened to prosecute reporters and editors over coverage of Trump’s controversial immigration policy.
Several Trump administration officials have also been charged with felonies for alleged hate crimes.
Media outlets have also faced backlash for their coverage of Donald Trump’s policies and rhetoric.
According the Pew Research Center, the number is at its highest since the 1960s.
While many people believe that people of color are targets of hate crimes, there is no evidence that bias towards journalists and journalists is on the rise.
People of color have been the targets of anti-Semitic hate crimes in the U.S. in recent decades, and a 2014 study found that hate crimes against journalists have increased since the election.
