Will Trump succeed in blocking undocumented immigrants?


A centerpiece of President Trump’s campaign was a promise to get tough on immigration, both the illegal kind that occurs across the U.S.-Mexican border and the legal type — particularly involving refugees — from certain Muslim countries that the president says could make America vulnerable to terrorist attacks. But early in his administration federal courts blocked Trump’s efforts to temporarily ban Muslim visitors from certain countries, while his plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border have yet to show results. However, given freer rein by the Trump administration than they had under President Barack Obama, federal immigration agents have taken a more aggressive approach to rounding up and deporting undocumented immigrants.
