Donald Trump has officially been sworn in as the Nation’s 45th President. To many immigrants, his arrival into the Oval Office presents a fear of the unknown–that is what could happen to me and my family?. Rest assured, there yet is hope for you and yours.
To many migrants (i.e. legal, undocumented, illegal, political, as well as economic migrants) America may witness a shift from the economic, social, legal, and cultural policies, and legacies of President Barack Obama. However, there are some immigrants, those legally documented, who are awaiting the fruition of the promises made by President Trump to grow the economy, create new jobs, promote business-friendly laws, actively implement fiscal policies supportive of the inflow of foreign investments into the United States. Whichever category you fall under, once again, rest assured there is yet still hope for all immigrants.
President Elect Trump has notably stated his plan to begin a mass deportation of immigrants. A November 2016 New York Times post highlights Mr. Trump’s unequivocal desire to legally initiate the deportation of 2-3 million illegal (and perhaps undocumented) immigrants. The successful and legal enforcement of this agenda would lead to mass deportation and potential separation of families. An outcome similar to Joseph Swing’s famous “Operation Wetback.” A 1954 mass deportation scheme co-implemented with the Mexican government under the Bracers program which lasted from 1942 to 1964.
