LAWS 627 - Immigration Law

Credits: 2

This course will examine the legal framework and criteria that govern who can legally enter, reside, and become a citizen in the polity of the United States, a country that has attracted large numbers of immigrants throughout its history and continues to do so today. Drawing on the Immigration and Nationality Act, attention will be paid to judicial, legislative, and regulatory construction of those provisions of immigration law relevant to defining who is allowed into the United States and in what category, who may be removed, and the more recent focus on security/terrorism concerns and immigration as a political issue.
