Immigration Law and Procedure is a 22-Volume "Bible'' of immigration law that has been cited in over 450 federal court decisions in cases from across the U.S. circuit courts of appeals, federal district courts, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Authors Stephen Yale-Loehr and Ron Wada are nationally respected immigration specialists whose professional expertise has made Immigration Law & Procedure the flagship immigration treatise. Their analysis and opinions on undecided points of law have carried considerable weight with the courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court.

Inside you'll find comprehensive, detailed practice guide coverage of all aspects of immigration law, including:

  • Development of the Immigration Laws;
  • Institutions of Immigration Law (agencies and their operation; attorneys; rights privileges and liabilities of aliens; sanctions, discrimination, and employment authorization);
  • Process of Controlling Entry Into the United States (admission process; restrictions);
  • Nonimmigrants (classification, terms of admission, and procedures; separate chapters on the various classifications);
  • Immigrants (classifications exempt from numerical restrictions; classifications subject to numerical restrictions; procedures for obtaining permanent residence; final steps to resident status);
  • Admission, Parole, and Removal (procedure at border; grounds of exclusion/inadmissibility; waivers; removal of noncitizens; exclusion proceedings);
  • Deportability/Deportation (grounds; procedure; relief from deportation);
  • Nationality and Citizenship (acquisition of citizenship or nationality by or at birth; naturalization requirements, procedure, and special classes; acquisition of citizenship after birth other than by naturalization; evidence of citizenship; loss of U.S. citizenship or nationality; civil liabilities and criminal offenses);
  • Judicial Review;
  • Miscellaneous Matters (including taxation; international medical graduates; detention of noncitizens; damage actions against government officials; civil liabilities and criminal offenses; class actions; Canadian immigration law—permanent admission; temporary workers in Canada).
