Immigration and Nationality Law: Problems and Strategies introduces the reader to the legal concepts and experience of practicing immigration law. This book is designed for both law students and attorneys as it covers not only statutory provisions and key immigration law cases, it also provides an understanding to the many government agencies involved in the immigration process and how to navigate the wide variety of adjudications that are central to the U.S. immigration system.

The book includes problems that ask the reader, from a variety of legal roles, to learn how to solve common immigration problems. By working through these problems the user will observe the immigration process from initial sponsorship to the United States, to seeking admission at the border, to finding and maintaining status and securing permanent resident status within the United States.

Immigration and Nationality Law: Problems and Strategies moves through the complex issues of determining whether a person is infadmissible or barred from securing status or entering the United States. It explores the removal process and which categories of people and what type of behavior can subject a noncitizen to expulsion. It then continues with an examination of the forms of relief from removal and asylum and other humanitarian protections. The text closes with the ultimate goal of many immigrants—naturalization, while other ways to acquire or derive U.S. citizenship are also explored.

"Immigration and Nationality Law: Problems and Strategies has quickly become one of the primary training tools in our office. The explanations regarding the law are precise yet are free of unnecessary jargon that is often the bane of technical subjects. The Problems section alone is worth the price of the book. They provide real life scenarios that are incredibly useful for staff training and development. I highly recommend this resource for any immigration firm." — Stephen J.
