The law of immigration
Over the past several years, immigration has become a very important subject for lawmakers, key politicians, and of course those who enter the United States hoping to one day become a citizen. After 9/11, the United States government issued numerous laws addressing immigration and citizenship guidelines as well as the institutions and bodies who oversee the implementation of these laws. This latest edition of The Law of Immigration serves as a perfect introduction for those seeking to familiarize themselves with the most recent changes in immigration law.
The Law of Immigration, 3rd Edition discusses immigration law, including an overview of the history of immigration laws, a discussion of the current laws as well as the evolution of the laws post-9/11. Author, Maragaret Jasper addresses key issues such as the rights and obligations of the alien, including issues of entry and admission, exclusion, employment, naturalization and citizenship, asylum, deportation, as well as visas and limitations. She outlines the process of becoming an American citizen through naturalization, and the requirements that must be met, including eligibility, the application process, testing and the oath of allegiance. The structure of the Immigration department and the Department of Homeland Security's role within the law as it applies after 9/11 is explained along with increases in border security. Various US Citizenship and Immigration resources are provided, including pertinent forms and guideline revisions.
