Learn About Immigration Law
Immigration law in the U.S. is the body of federal laws which regulate whether and how a person from another country can come into the U.S. legally.
Any person who is born on United States soil is automatically a citizen of the U.S., regardless of the citizenship or immigration status of their parents.
A citizen of the U.S. is generally free to move about the country, and leave the country for any amount of time, and return whenever they please, with no consequences for their citizenship status.
There are many important aspects to immigration law that warrant discussion, such as asylum, non-immigrant visas, deportation / removal, and naturalization, among others.
