Since the early days of Trump’s presidential term, he has made it clear that his administration will take a hard stance on immigration. Trump made immigration the centerpiece of his campaign in 2016, and it will once again be front and center during the next election cycle.
As president of the United States, Trump has been able to substantially alter U.S. immigration policy with executive orders that have resulted in sharp cuts to legal immigration and increased enforcement at the border. From his controversial Muslim Ban to canceling the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Trump’s policy shifts have complicated the lives of immigrants who are traveling to and already living in the United States.
