Immigration Law

This guide covers immigration law including topics on asylum seeking, migration, immigrant labor law, and current developments in immigration law enforcement.

Historical Overview

Current Statutes

Title 8 of the United States Code contains the current statutes dealing with the role of aliens and nationality and provides the statutory framework for immigration law.

Current Regulations

After regulations are published in the Federal Register, they are collected and published in the Code of Federal Regulations, commonly referred to as the CFR. The CFR is arranged by subject title and generally parallels the structure of the United States Code. Thus, Title 8 of the CFR deals with "Aliens and Nationality", as does Title 8 of the U.S. Code.
