Authors : Bentaleb Ibtissam .

Abstract

The United States was founded and has remained for more than 200 years, a land of immigration. Its immigration policy has passed through various stages, with miscellaneous events and enduring issues influencing immigration and immigrants in the United States. The immigration measures taken by President Barack Obama and his Republican successor Donald Trump sparked contentious debates. Initially, the two administrations were accused of targeting and causing enormous harm to Latino immigrants. The purpose of this article is to analyze the immigration measures issued during Obama and Trump presidencies and their impacts on Latino immigrants. We intend to draw a comparative analysis between Obama and Trump’s immigration measures targeting Latino immigrants. The crux of this survey is to explore the basic immigration measures adopted by Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump. Besides, it shows how did those measures manipulate U.S. immigration policies. The findings reveal the way those measures of both administrations affected Latino immigrants.
