Ah, the B-Movie/Pulp issue title strikes again! Why do people still take George W. Bush's ridiculously cheesy, overblown, melodramatic, and ultimately inappropriate and highly inaccurate "War on Terror" label seriously, and still use it as an official name of a real world conflict?

Pretty good list, only one I would ad is Net neutrality. Maybe Gerrymandering, but that depends on the Wisconsin case.

DACA and Immigration shouldn't be separate. As @Patine says, I think "War on Terror" should be renamed to "Terrorism" because the phrase has sort of diminished.

I decided to keep them seperate as Immigration could be taken as referring to travel bans and I don't want that to be mixed with DACA.

Then why don't you have DACA and Travel Bans separately? Or have Travel Bans and Immigration? Or why not Travel Bans and Immigration?

Travel bans (which are stupid and flawed policy that any terrorist worth their salt will easily get around because they'll know better than to fly from an affected country with a passport from such a country; the policy will ONLY succeed in stirring up resentment, criticism, animosity, and showing the braindead nature and desire for oversimplistic but unrealistic solutions that are the hallmark of the Trump agenda) shouldn't be under immigration, because international travel as a whole is NOT the same thing as immigration.

Can I pilfer some of these? Especially the Russia one. Going to make that a big weakpoint for the GOP in the election.

Sure.
