Trump is setting the stage “for a full scale war on immigration [that will] reprise the war on drugs,” says Shikha Dalmia, a policy analyst at the Reason Foundation and a columnist at The Week. She fears that the federal government will start “giving incentives to catch illegals” just as it does in the drug war. The mayors of so-called sanctuary cities like New York and Chicago have vowed to protect illegal immigrant residents from Trump, but with the right incentives, Dalmia say, they may “come to heel after all.”
