Banned
Immigration Enforcement in the Time of Trump
by Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia
978-1-4798-5746-3 | $30

Examines immigration enforcement and discretion during the first eighteen months of the Trump administration

Banned combines personal interviews, immigration law, policy analysis, and case studies to answer the following questions:

  1. What does immigration enforcement and discretion look like in the time of Trump?
  2. Who is affected by changes to immigration enforcement and discretion?
  3. How have individuals and families affected by immigration enforcement under President Trump changed their own perceptions about the future?
  4. How do those informed about immigration enforcement and discretion describe the current state of affairs and perceive the future?

Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia pairs the contents of these interviews with a robust analysis of immigration enforcement and discretion during the first eighteen months of the Trump administration and offers recommendations for moving forward.

Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia is the Samuel Weiss Faculty Scholar and Founding Director of the Center for Immigrants’ Rights Clinic at Penn State Law in University Park, Pennsylvania, and author of Beyond Deportation.
