An Overview of Immigration Law
In the United States, immigration law is generally promulgated and enforced by the federal government. Immigration law is concerned with the rights, duties, and obligations related to non-American individuals in the United States.
The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, 8 U.S.C. §1101, has been a major influence over modern immigration law. That statute eliminated race-based immigration quotas, aspects of which had been in effect since the Naturalization Act of 1790, Pub. L. 1-3, The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) of 1996, 8 U.S.C. § 1101, updated the process of entering the United States. The Department of Homeland Security houses three agencies—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)—that are tasked with enforcing immigration law.
Additionally, immigration law covers issues including immigrant and nonimmigrant visas, grounds for removal, bases for relief from removal, asylum, and issues concerning derivative citizenship and nationalization.
