Abstract:
This thesis explores deportation in modern America. With an initial examination of the immigration laws passed in the 1980 and 90s which resulted in the advent of mass deportation, this paper then explore regional responses to a lack of congressional immigration reform and the subsequent federal response. Focusing on the Obama administration and the first year of the Trump Presidency this paper explores the actions and impact that these men have on some of the country’s most vulnerable residents.
