Abstract

Illegal immigration has been one of America’s ultimate problems, where various efforts were done to decrease the amount of illegal immigrants crossing the Southwest Border. Zero Tolerance Policy, as one of the efforts, was implemented under Donald Trump’s administration, but unfortunately has problematic actions and results to combat illegal immigrants. The researchers assumed three justifications to analyze the background of policy-making process, limiting the scope into illegal Latin American immigrants. This research uses qualitative method through library research study to accommodate the required sources. The result of this paper are the impacts on the implementation of the policy such as 1) Legal Issues and Human Rights Violations; 2) Devaluation of the American Dream, 3) Psychological Effects.
