"Make America White Again. Changes in U.S. immigration policy under Donald Trump's administration.
This article analyzes how one of the most important changes in the Donald Trump administration was the restriction of family-based entry in all dimensions of immigration policy: permanent, temporary, undocumented and humanitarian. Based on the Fitzgerald and Cook-Martin (2014) model, the targeting of the migrant population was carried out through the implementation of various executive orders and administrative changes. Specifically, the costs (economic and humanitarian) for migrants and their families were raised in order to discourage them from continuing with their migratory project (arrival, stay and/or for the eventual reunification of more family members) as the case may be. The aforementioned in order to fulfill one of the ideals of this administration, which was to stop the growth of the non-white population in the United States. The application of this policy had a particularly negative impact on Mexicans and Central Americans.
