"Fear of man is sin", she wrote in capital letters on Facebook.

Undocumented tech workers don't believe building a border wall is realistic, but they do fully expect Trump to follow through on many of his other, less publicized anti-immigration promises. "Although Obama deported many thousands of people, there was a sense in Mexico that Obama was a partner they could work with".

President Obama and Trump held their first meeting at the White House on Thursday where Obama said that his prime priority in the coming two months would be to ensure a smooth transition of his administration to Trump's so that he is successful in his term. Some experts say Trump is politically obligated to deport them. Raymundo, who's undocumented and came to the country from Guatemala in 2013, shrugs off the significance of Donald Trump's victory. Trump has said he would build a wall between the US and Mexico, deport undocumented individuals with criminal records, increase vetting of those entering the USA, and limit funding to sanctuary cities throughout the country which offer protection from prosecution to undocumented immigrants, among other remarks.

Four years ago I pointed out the fundamental problem with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: Anyone who signed up for DACA would be adding their names to a list of self-identified illegal aliens.

Many of those pledges-such as tripling the ranks of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and building a wall along the southern US border-require cooperation from Congress, which some of his Republican allies will be eager to provide. Advocates said the productivity of DACA beneficiaries will be an argument to defend a worthwhile program.

Until then, Beardall said, his group will work to inform immigrants about their rights, which do not change with the election of a new president. People talked of packing their bags and rumors of immigration raids. "With the new president, I think there are a lot of questions about what we can advance, and what we want to protect in regards to human rights in our immigrant communities", California Immigrant Policy Center spokesperson Gina de Silva said.

"Sometimes the most important thing you can do is to prepare them for what might happen, even if you don't know exactly what it is", he said.

Since launching his presidential run a year and a half ago with a speech describing Mexican immigrants as rapists, Trump has made a bevy of promises about how he'd overhaul US immigration policy.

Her essay ended on a hopeful note.

He was among the first to apply for the DACA program and now works legally, helping other South Koreans fill out immigration forms.

But Trump has promised to end DACA, and Ruiz fears she could be sent to Mexico and separated from her US -born children.

He also called for implementing an entry-exit system to address those who overstayed their visas and boosting the number of immigration agents. But this time around, following Tuesday's election of Trump to the presidency, Huerta is feeling a little jittery. And many were already crediting the expected loss to his angry rhetoric and the nation's changing demographics, particularly the rising Latino voting bloc as a major factor.

The news that Trump was elected president, sent waves of shock and fear through many Hispanic communities.

Clinton wasn't that far off from Obama, who won 70 percent in that election.

But a 2013 video shows Trump had another concern about immigrants - that they'd vote for Democrats.
