About the Book

This new, innovative casebook approaches immigration law and policy from a public interest perspective with a special emphasis on issues of social justice. Along with cases and statutory material, Immigration Law and Social Justice also employs a wide variety of materials from appellate cases, client examples, article excerpts, and hypotheticals. These materials not only provide the basic framework for immigration law, but also engage students with the greater social, political, and economic context necessary to understand the movement of immigrants to the United States, as well as the human impact of enforcement and administration of the immigration laws.

Key features of the First Edition:

  • Focuses on issues of contemporary relevance, highlighting some of the most contentious areas of immigration law and policy.
  • Provides deep background on the social context of immigration law and its enforcement in the context of a sophisticated examination of the technicalities of the relevant statutory and administrative law.
  • Encourages students to learn relevant law with an eye toward potential advocacy, including litigation strategies.
  • Challenges students to evaluate critically the mutually constitutive work of race and immigration law.
  • Provides the contextual background to understand immigration and immigration enforcement.
  • A unique focus on immigration and social justice, as well as public interest immigration lawyering.
