dc.description.abstract The topic of immigration has historically represented a significant area of concern for the United States' politics due to the increasing number of individuals that come to the United States every year and remain here unlawfully. The United States has promoted itself as an open-door country by creating programs and policies that welcome and protect the individual's rights of people from other parts of the world. However, throughout time, the number of people immigrating to the United States has increased significantly, leading to the implementation of many different immigration programs. This study was designed to analyze how former President Barack Obama and his administration dealt with immigration policies, and what new programs he introduced during his presidency. Some of the most remarkable immigration efforts of Obama's administration targeted the deportation of individuals with criminal convictions, the introduction of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and the exercise of prosecutorial discretion. These programs' main goal was to properly channel government resources into the deportation of criminals, prevent the separation of families and innocent people, and the support and protection of youth and professionals brought to the country as children.
