Immigration and Citizenship

Law 214






This course surveys immigration law and policy in the United States.  It explores questions relating to the meaning of U.S. citizenship, the circumstances under which newcomers are permitted to enter the U.S., and the circumstances under which they may be forced to leave.  Students will interpret complex statutes within the context of a dynamic interplay between Congress, administrative agencies, and the courts.  We will also seek to place current laws in their historical, social, and political contexts.
