What Does Trump's Victory Mean for Immigrants? NYC Immigration Lawyers Explain, Manhattan, New York

In the wake of Donald Trump's presidential victory, many immigrants and their attorneys are waiting, anxious to see which of his many immigration-related campaign promises the newly elected president will follow up on. While some ideas put forward during the the campaign may prove to be impossible, others could have immediate consequences for those attempting to navigate an already complex process.

According to Berd & Klauss, PLLC, NYC immigration lawyers who have been tracking these issues throughout the campaign, Trump will almost certainly put an end to President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. The policy allowed those brought into the country as children to continue living and working in the United States. In addition to ending DACA, Trump has also promised to dramatically increase the budget of U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement, increase deportations, and insist on new policies that keep immigrants in custody while their cases are being processed.

No matter which specific policies come into effect, however, the negative rhetoric and the framing of issues indicates that navigating the complex process will only become more difficult in the coming years. Immigration lawyers around the country are preparing to help their clients deal with what will surely be a confusing process.
