New York Times Washington correspondents Davis and Shear provide an inside account with never-before-told stories of Trump’s opposition to immigration to the United States. They discuss how the President and his allies blocked asylum-seekers and refugees, separated families, threatened deportation and sought to erode the longstanding bipartisan consensus on immigration, all with decision-making driven by gut instinct and marked by disorganization, paranoia, and a constantly feuding staff.
