Advocates Worry About About U.S. Immigration Policy Under Trump

Many immigrant rights advocates are concerned that President-elect Donald Trump's immigration policies would violate the U.S. Constitution and human rights norms. Even some of Mr. Trump’s supporters question his ability to keep promises like immediately deporting millions of people. 

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel made clear after the election that he expects no change in the lives of Chicago’s migrant population. We talk about future U.S. immigration policy and how it may affect Chicago with Oscar Chacon, co‐founder and executive director of Alianza Americas, an umbrella of U.S.-based immigrant‐led and immigrant-serving organizations, and Susan Gzesh, executive director of the University of Chicago’s Pozen Family Center for Human Rights.
