The Trump Administration – Immigration Priorities

30 November 2016
Mayer Brown Legal Update

By all accounts immigration was among the most debated issues of the 2016 presidential election. According to the Pew Research Center, 70 percent of registered voters listed immigration as “very important” to their vote in 2016. President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the southern border with Mexico is only one of a number of controversial immigration-related priorities certain to be watched closely during the first hundred days of the new administration and beyond. Having scrutinized, and at times participated in, the implementation of immigration policies of new administrations over more than three decades, the lawyers in Mayer Brown’s Global Mobility & Migration practice are pleased to present “The Trump Administration – Immigration Priorities.” The color-coded chart is intended as an indispensible reference for US employers and others to the immigration priorities of the incoming administration and the likelihood/timing of the implementation of each. At Mayer Brown we believe preparation is key to mitigating the risks and preparing your organization for any potential change.
