New Book: Immigration Law: A Primer
As part of the Federal depository program, the Utah State Law Library recently received the new monograph Immigration Law: A Primer, published by the Federal Judicial Center. It provides an overview of immigration law, including lawful immigrant categories, admission procedures and the grounds for deportation. The primer also includes citations to pertinent case law. For example, in the asylum and refugee law section, the author cites cases that define "persecution," and cases that provide examples of how and when a foreign nation's actions did or did not constitute "persecution." The book also includes a glossary and table of cases.
This publication is also available as a free download through the Federal Judicial Center.
