Immigration Law

Students will learn to think critically about the historical, theoretical and constitutional context of immigration law, including division of immigration power between federal and state government as well as limits to the federal immigration power under the United States Constitution. The course will teach the core principles of immigration law, its norms and practices. Students will develop analytical skills to question and appraise immigration law policies and practices. Students will also learn to identify current immigration issues in the United States, including analyzing the constitutionality and rationality of recent state and federal legislative enactments and proposals. Finally, the class will explore causes of present immigration problems and violations and what possible steps might Congress or states take to remedy flaws in current legislation on immigration.
