Vulnerable Immigrants Fear Consequences of Trump's Crackdown

Vulnerable Immigrants Fear Consequences of Trump's Crackdown

A recent Boston Globe article details the paralyzing fear of deportation that immigrants nationwide are feeling in light of the Trump administration’s continued crackdown on undocumented immigrants. Under previous administrations, undocumented immigrants had little to fear, so long as they didn’t break the law. Now, however, fear of deportation is very real for all undocumented immigrants, whether they have a criminal history or not. The Trump administration is focusing on the deportation of all undocumented immigrants, no matter whether they have committed felonies or not. The mere fact of being present in the U.S. without a legal immigration status is enough to make them vulnerable to deportation. Immigrants, particularly in small rural communities, are increasingly staying home, keeping their children indoors, and trying to avoid any exposure or action that would call attention to them and result in deportation. Parents prevent their children from going trick-or-treating, from visiting local playgrounds, and from going to the doctor, all out of fear of deportation. They have cut down on trips to the laundromat, trips to Wal-Mart, and going anywhere that would require driving; getting pulled over for a traffic violation or being involved in an accident could put them at risk of deportation. Immigrants fearful of deportation are making arrangements to give up custody of their U.S.-born children if they are forced to leave the country. The county’s immigration court has become one of the busiest courts in the country, where over 1,500 deportations have been ordered so far this year, which is a 40% increase over last year, and is approaching the same number of deportations ordered in much larger cities, such as Boston and Baltimore.
