1. The federal government's jurisdiction over immigration law has consistently been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, which has overruled attempts by state legislatures to single out immigrants. Additionally, the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution is generally interpreted to mean that federal laws trump state laws, except for certain matters constitutionally left to the states. However, many states have passed legislation that limits undocumented immigrants' access to public benefits, directs state and local police to check the legal residence status of arrestees and other directives that affect immigrants. Lawmakers pressing for immigration-related state laws typically cite a lack of federal enforcement and the need to conserve limited state resources, while some cite security concerns. But are such state laws constitutional? While state lawmakers have articulated a genuine interest in limiting illegal immigration, there is no clear line in the sand. See State Immigration Lawsf...

1. US immigration law changed significantly after the events of 9-11, and in particular the methods used to enforce those offenses. The country still allows over 1 million aliens to become citizens, but there are many living in the country illegally. Those who are doing so are already breaking immigration laws, and even those who are US citizens who assisted the immigrant could face charges in some cases. Usually, immigration offenses are noticed when another crime has occurred. In these cases, crimes as simple as a DUI could lead to deportation and possibly other penalties. Laws related to immigration include the actual entry into the country illegally, living here for any time, assisting others in crossing the border, and more. In short, anything related to crossing into the country without a passport or other required documents could lead to immigration offenses. However, it is important to understand that if you are charged with a crime and aren’t a legal US resident, you are still...

1. The U.S. Congress currently has before it a measure that would reduce substantially the level of annual legal immigration. This focus on legal immigration comes at a time that Congress and the administration are also looking at ways to decrease illegal immigration. The bill, recently introduced by Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) would reduce annual immigration to 300,000. Earlier recommendations have been to limit immigration to other target levels, such as 400,000 (the target of the Rockefeller Commission in 1972), or "zero net immigration" meaning immigration equal to emigration. The reasons for reducing immigration from its current high level (over 800 thousand last year not counting additional hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants) relate primarily to our nation's current rapid population growth, and the need to harness our workforce to a high-wage, high-skill economy that is internationally competitive. Reducing legal immigration could be achieved by setting an overall ceiling,...
