Morning Shift: Trump’s Immigration Crackdown

By Marianne Levine and Ted Hesson
November 14, 2016

A leading pro-immigrant group is preparing for the worst when Donald Trump moves into the Oval Office. “I don’t think it’s overstating it to say Trump’s election has plunged millions of immigrant families into crisis,” Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice, told Morning Shift. Border security will be a top priority for Trump, but he also said Sunday that he plans to deport or incarcerate undocumented immigrants with criminal records, a pool he estimates at 2-3 million people. With Trump in office, groups such as America’s Voice will move into a defensive posture and focus on people who are “suddenly much more vulnerable” to deportation. Trump has vowed to overturn President Obama’s executive actions, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provides more than 740,000 young people with a shield against deportation (America’s Voice itself has a staffer employed through the DACA program). “How a President Trump decides to handle Dreamers will be very revealing,” Sharry said, in reference to young undocumented immigrants. “There’s not a lot of confidence that he’s going to moderate.”
