Immigration to the United States continues to increase. With this growth, the cultural and ethnic demographic of the United States has become even more diverse. As a result, It is essential to understand the dynamic of Latinos in the United States and subsequently the State of Idaho. Additionally, it is imperative to examine the rhetoric that enables stereotypes and misguided attitudes towards Latinos. This research project examines the rhetoric of the Trump administration and the influences of the rhetoric on Mexican immigration to Idaho. A mixed-methods approach is used; combining qualitative surveys and in-person, semi-structured interviews with undocumented Latinos in Idaho. This research informs the continual need to examine cultural diversity and rhetoric in Idaho.
