Question: What is immigration law?

Answer: Immigration laws are the rules established by the federal government for determining who is allowed to enter the U.S. and how long they can stay. Immigration law also governs the nationalization process for those who want to become a U.S. citizen and, finally, deals with those who are not U.S. citizens who have entered the country without permission or who have stayed past their allotted time in the U.S. or who have lost their legal status in some way, whether through removal or some other process. There are also issues of asylum and refugee status that are covered by immigration laws.
