As everyone in the world learned on Wednesday, Mr. Donald Trump has been elected the next President of the United States. In the next two months, President Obama will be transitioning power to the President-Elect, culminating with Mr. Trump’s inauguration in January 2017. Mr. Trump has promised that his administration will hit the ground running to deliver on his campaign promises, including making significant changes to many aspects of immigration policy. While it is hard to predict exactly which campaign promise Mr. Trump will decide to pursue first, the following 10 points have been published on his administration’s website, and they provide as good of an idea as any regarding the President-Elect’s immediate plans for immigration policy in the United States.
Building the Wall
Mr. Trump has made it abundantly clear that he intends to dramatically increase security efforts along our border with Mexico. While it remains to be seen whether the Mexican government will in fact finance such efforts, “building the wall” is listed as the first initiative on the President-Elect’s website.
