Understanding Immigration Law and Practice

At a time when immigration law is in flux, Understanding Immigration Law and Practice offers a thorough, accessible, and practical approach to understand and apply U.S. laws and regulations to help protect refugees, bring needed workers to the U.S, prevent separation of and reunite families, and provide relief to foreign nationals facing removal proceedings. Attuned to the sensitivity and responsibility necessary to ensure just results in high stakes immigration cases, the authors, who have a combined 35-plus years of front-line experience, provide readers with in-depth information and highlight readers recent changes and ongoing litigation where applicable. In addition, the book offers a new section on enforcement in both in the non-and employment-based contexts, providing avenues for discussions on matters of policy. They generously and freely offer their knowledge and insights into the complex legal issues faced by immigration clients, followed up by proposing strategies for the professionals seeking to help them.
