Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has given Donald Trump ample opportunity to enact controversial measures and advance his America First agenda under the guise of emergency powers. Laura Smith argues that Trump’s latest announcement of his intent to ban all immigration is the most egregious example of his xenophobia. She places this intended ban in the context of the long history of American xenophobia and limitations on immigration.
