Everyone Has Certain Basic Rights, No Matter Who Is President
Donald Trump, who repeatedly made anti-immigrant promises during his campaign, began his term as president of the U.S. in January 2017. But no matter who is president, everyone living in the U.S. has certain basic rights under the U.S. Constitution—everyone, including people who are undocumented.
