How Trump is shaping immigration policy

Posted: Jan. 31, 2018 | Tags: immigration

The timeline was updated on Feb. 15.

It’s no surprise that President Donald Trump has pushed for stricter immigration enforcement since he came into office. It was a key focus of his campaign. In his first State of the Union address, President Trump spent more than 10 minutes of the address talking about immigration from the U.S-Mexico border wall to the need for more border officers and stricter enforcement.

“It is time to reform these outdated immigration rules, and finally bring our immigration system into the 21st century,” he said.

What Trump didn’t talk about were the ups and downs of immigration under his administration. The Investigative Reporting Workshop built a timeline of immigration during Trump’s first year and we’ll continue to update it.
