Essentials of immigration law
261 pages. Updated by new edition.
This book serves as a comprehensive overview of immigration law. The author acknowledges immigration law is an extremely complex area of study with a profound impact on the lives of individuals trying to navigate through the "labyrinth." Changing policies on immigration have created a patchwork of laws and regulations and a dizzying array of agencies involved in enforcing the statutes. This book provides the essentials for understanding immigration law in a readable format and serves as a springboard for more in-depth research in other American Immigration Lawyers Association publications. It is complimented by appendices that explain key concepts, abbreviations and acronyms.
