Immigration promises to be a dominant issue in 2017. The topic was thrust to the forefront by the presidential election in large part due to President-elect Donald Trump.

From the refugee crisis in Europe to debates over sanctuary cities in the U.S. to the wall Trump promises to build on the Mexican border — immigration is increasingly a global, national and local issue.

Reporter Shannon Dooling joined WBUR's Morning Edition to look back at what stood out on immigration in 2016.

This segment aired on December 27, 2016.
