This survey course will explore the many facets of U.S. immigration law including the policies and politics that create it. The course will use many topics to examine the constitutional, statutory, regulatory, and human aspects, including: the federal immigration power, citizenship, admissions, family and employment-based immigration, deportation/removal, refugees/asylum, employer sanctions and anti-discrimination, and other current topics in the immigration debate. We will also focus on the practice of immigration law and how it affects other areas of the law
such as family law, business law, and criminal law.
