After the first week of Donald Trump’s presidency many changes have been occurring in the country. A continuous stream of executive orders signed by the President are causing extreme controversy. Executive Order: Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into The United States, the more moderate version of the “Muslim ban” that President Trump called for during his campaign was signed on Friday. Some people who were still in the air when Trump signed the order were detained or sent back to where they flew in from when they landed. This led to people being detained in airports sparking numerous protests at airports across the country, calling the order unconstitutional. On Saturday, a federal judge temporarily stayed the order, stopping people from being detained and deported from the country.

This law was supposed to put a definite stop to illegal immigration into the United States. However, ever since the law was enacted, statistics show that the numbers of illegal immigrants in the United States have ascended from an estimated 5 million in 1986, to about 11 million today. Therefore because of these rising numbers, immigration has been one of the most popular topics in U.S. elections and debates. So on November 20th 2014, President Obama announced to the nation the executive actions that he 's planning to take to fix our nation 's broken immigration system.

President Donald J. Trump has issued an executive order that has banned immigrants from entering the United States of America. Enacting this prohibition would damage America’s reputation as the melting pot that we once were. A group of presidents of leading American colleges and universities wrote a letter urging Donald Trump to rectify the recent executive order.

In November of 2014 president Obama issued executive orders shielding about a third of the nation’s illegal immigrants from deportation and permitting them to work. Recently on April 18th, the Supreme Court considered whether his actions were legal. The president can veto any acts that the congress may attempt; which in this case is what occurred. President Obama was using his executive power to carry out the actions he believed to be in the best interest of everyone. That’s why we have a democracy to choose what president we believe will do what is right for all. The legislative branch may override a president’s veto but in this case that action was never taken when the president had originally tried to veto the deportation act. The judicial
The U.S. has always being considered the land of opportunities. Back in my home country opportunities were very scarce, which led to my family immigrating to the U.S. for a better future. Having had firsthand experience in the immigration transition system, it has been captivating to hear in the news about the Executive Order Obama issued on November 20, 2014. Seeing families getting separated, violence raising in the Mexican border, and the increasing Latin population in the U.S. signaled the need for this Executive Order in immigrant communities. Even though the Constitution states that Congress has the duty of writing our Nation’s laws, President Obama declared an Executive Order on Immigration. It is believed to be a political boom for
In The New York Times’ article called “Trump’s Immigration Ban Is Illegal” published on January 27th, 2017, David J. Bier expresses his personal opinion about the execute order signed by Trump that supports to bar all permanent immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries. According to Bier, the order is illegal, since Congress outlawed all discrimination against immigrants and American citizens based on nationality, race, sex, place of birth, or place of residence by means of The Immigration and National Act of 1965. However, Bier explains that the 1965 law does not ban discrimination based on religion, which was Mr. Trump’s original proposal. The author uses examples to prove that presidents have used their powers many times to forbid
Rallies, riots, and protests have been springing up even outside of the U.S. Former president Barack Obama has already spoken out against the immigration ban recently put into place. “In his final official speech as President, he spoke about the important role of citizen[s] and how all Americans have a responsibility to be guardians of our democracy― not just during an election but every day,” said Obama’s spokesman Kevin Lewis, quoted in a 2017 NPR article. Not only that, but according to a 2017 New York Times article, the immigration ban is illegal. Over 50 years ago, Congress outlawed discrimination against immigrants based on national origin. In 1924, after the troubles relating to the Asiatic Barred Zone, Congress created a comprehensive “national-origins system.” Trump, in defense, quoted a 1952 law allowing the president the ability to “suspend the entry” of “any class of aliens,” which was restricted in 1965, something our president should know if he’s going to run the country for four years. Donald Trump, by doing this, is violating the beliefs of the Philosophes, i.e. Voltaire, Rousseau, and Locke. He does so by ignoring religious tolerance, and by violating the Constitution and natural rights. Donald Trump is not only lacking knowledge on the Constitution and American laws, but he is also putting out country at risk by placing this ban in order. On the contrary, Trump is doing so with best
Recently there has been an increase in racism towards Hispanics in America especially during the 2016 presidential election. Donald trump and his supporters place blame on Hispanic immigrants for stealing jobs from American workers and bringing drugs into the country. The solution that Donald Trump has proposed for solving the said issues is by building a border wall, which he stated Mexicans would pay for, that he believes would keep out illegal immigrants. The Trump administration has taken a more aggressive approach to illegal immigration and wishes to increase immigration enforcement and speed deportation. Unfortunately during the present era the way that hispanics are targeted and blamed exemplifies the pattern throughout history of minorities
