Poster #2: Thaiss Del Rio Sanchez – More Than a Status: Navigating Immigrant “Illegality” and Discourse During the Trump Era

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Annie Isabel Fukushima

This project investigates the way that discourse on immigration policy during the Trump administration impacts the way immigrants in Utah navigate and experience “illegality.” Thematic analysis revealed a total of 8 reoccurring themes that account for the way the Trump administration discussed and perceived immigrants and immigration policy. Participatory action research will take place in the Spring with the goal of creating an action-research project that will benefit the community.
