Prior to his election, President Trump was open regarding his hard-line stance on immigration to the US leading to both opposition and support of his ideas.
President Trump has been under fire for his views and implantation of his immigration laws. Everyone will be aware that part of his immigration policy was to build a wall between America and Mexico to stop the flow of illegal aliens into the US. Currently, no such wall exists however that’s not to say that it won’t be built at some point in the future.
There was public outcry recently when President Trump ordered those illegally crossing the border into the US to be detained. Images and videos broadcast around the globe showed that children were detained separately from their parents and in a huge amount of distress. The holding areas resembled cages and it was only after a serious global backlash that President Trump relented and stopped the separation of minors from their guardians.
Since his inauguration, President Trump has strengthened border control throughout US entry ports and refugees are now subject to more thorough screening before being granted entry.
There is also doubt regarding the future of H-1B visas. H1-B visas are granted to individuals and permit them to temporarily work within the US for a certain period of time. The reason that President Trump is reviewing this type of visa is because he wants to give preference to US citizens for these roles rather than taking foreign nationals.
President Trump has also restricted those from certain countries from travelling to and/or working within the US. These countries include Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Yemen and Somalia. He has imposed these restrictions due to his belief that nationals of these countries pose a serious risk to the US.
Whether you agree with him or not President Trump has his own clear vision of immigration policy and should he be re-elected we may see more of his views becoming implemented as US law.
