Trump Impeachment and Its Impact on US Immigration Policy

Posted by Global Tree on October 1st, 2019

The past week has seen some rapid and ground breaking political activity in the United States. Nancy Pelosi, House democrat leader, has announced a formal impeachment enquiry into the 45th president of the United States over allegations that he was trying to coerce a foreign government into interfering in US elections for his benefit. It is a serious charge, and if proved true, with substantial evidence, can see Mr Trump having to leave office in disgrace and possibly face criminal proceedings as well. On the other hand if he is acquitted of all blame, then he and his base will feel vindicated in their claim of persecution by the opposition and may emerge stronger. The impeachment proceeding is therefore an important pivot in US politics and may be a predictor for the 2020 presidential elections. The impeachment would thus have a directimpact on US immigration as the policies would be largely influenced by the government that will be in power

Impact of impeachment on immigration

If the impeachment proceedings against the president are successful, then this would be the second biggest political upheaval after Richard Nixon's impeachment over the Watergate scandal. In such a scenario, it would be almost certain that the president would have to leave the office in disgrace and most likely the Democrats would come into power.
