Abstract

President Trump issued four executive orders dealing with immigration since taking office January 20, 2017, setting in motion plans to build a wall on the 2,000 mile Mexico–U.S. border, increase deportations, reduce refugee admissions, and protect U.S. workers. These executive orders signaled a new era in migration policy that emphasizes enforcement against unauthorized foreigners and protections for U.S. worker.
