LAW652 Immigration Law

Course Description

This course is an introduction to the law, policies, and procedures regulating the entry of aliens into the United States. Students examine the various avenues and strategies available under existing law to foreign nationals who seek temporary or permanent residence. To this end, students familiarize themselves with the federal agencies and processes which regulate the dispensation of immigration benefits in a variety of broad contexts, including family- and employment-based immigration, issues of inadmissibility and deportability, protection for aliens fleeing persecution, and citizenship and naturalization. The course also addresses issues of border security, undocumented alien workers, and employer sanctions, within the overall context of legislative reform efforts and attendant constitutional concerns in the post- 9/11 environment.
