Immigration Fraud

Fixing Loopholes in Immigration Law

Publisher: Freedom View Publishing LLC
ISBN: 0999726838
Category: Law
Page: 152
View: 7655
Current Immigration Law is riddled with loopholes waiting to be exploited by opportunists, fraudsters, and in some cases lawyers. Every single chapter highlights the statutory intent of the law, loopholes and exploitation by objectively verifiable evidence. Since 2010, requests for grant of immigrant benefits are astronomical. Sometimes, federal immigration agencies are blind-sided by lack of resources in the form of man-power and technology infrastructure. Intent of this book is to bring awareness about the perils of exploitation of federal laws and its impact to the public, immigration agencies and legal community at large. Exposure of exploitation and change in perception starts with advocacy! “In 2015, only 6% of the Immigrants gained Permanent Residence based on Skills, Education or an Ability to Invest in the United States!” – Excerpt from the Book. “Immigration is not a right by freedom of choice, when you exploit, abuse and commit fraud.” – B.R. Konda

Given the many ways in which immigration law can affect a single individual as well as as large corporation, most lawyers will encounter a client needing immigration law advice.

This book was written by immigration law specialists who insights, guidance, and practice tips can offer help in understanding these issues. The book is meant to provide attorneys working in various areas of law with enough information to identify problematic immigration issues, counsel their clients accordingly and if the matter is advanced to know when to advise the client to consult with immigration counsel.It will also introduce attorneys to the myriad of agencies involved in the immigration process."

The INS on the Line

Making Immigration Law on the US-Mexico Border, 1917-1954
Author: S. Deborah Kang
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0199757437

Page: 296
View: 3857
"For much of the twentieth century, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) officials recognized that the US-Mexico border region was a special case. Here, the INS confronted a set of political, social, and environmental obstacles that prevented it from replicating its achievements at the immigration stations of Angel Island and Ellis Island. In response to these challenges, local INS officials resorted to the law--amending, nullifying, and even rewriting the nation's immigration laws for the borderlands, as well as enforcing them. In The INS on the Line, S. Deborah Kang traces the ways in which the INS on the US-Mexico border made the nation's immigration laws over the course of the twentieth century. While the INS is primarily thought to be a law enforcement agency, Kang demonstrates that the agency also defined itself as a lawmaking body. Through a nuanced examination of the agency's admission, deportation, and enforcement practices in the Southwest, she reveals how local immigration officials constructed a complex approach to border control, one that closed the line in the name of nativism and national security, opened it for the benefit of transnational economic and social concerns, and redefined it as a vast legal jurisdiction for the policing of undocumented immigrants. Despite its contingent and local origins, this composite approach to border control, Kang concludes, continues to inform the daily operations of the nation's immigration agencies, American immigration law and policy, and conceptions of this border today"--

Hitler's American Model

The United States and the Making of Nazi Race Law
Author: James Q. Whitman
Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN: 1400884632
Category: History
Page: 224
View: 7597
How American race law provided a blueprint for Nazi Germany Nazism triumphed in Germany during the high era of Jim Crow laws in the United States. Did the American regime of racial oppression in any way inspire the Nazis? The unsettling answer is yes. In Hitler's American Model, James Whitman presents a detailed investigation of the American impact on the notorious Nuremberg Laws, the centerpiece anti-Jewish legislation of the Nazi regime. Contrary to those who have insisted that there was no meaningful connection between American and German racial repression, Whitman demonstrates that the Nazis took a real, sustained, significant, and revealing interest in American race policies. As Whitman shows, the Nuremberg Laws were crafted in an atmosphere of considerable attention to the precedents American race laws had to offer. German praise for American practices, already found in Hitler's Mein Kampf, was continuous throughout the early 1930s, and the most radical Nazi lawyers were eager advocates of the use of American models. But while Jim Crow segregation was one aspect of American law that appealed to Nazi radicals, it was not the most consequential one. Rather, both American citizenship and antimiscegenation laws proved directly relevant to the two principal Nuremberg Laws—the Citizenship Law and the Blood Law. Whitman looks at the ultimate, ugly irony that when Nazis rejected American practices, it was sometimes not because they found them too enlightened, but too harsh. Indelibly linking American race laws to the shaping of Nazi policies in Germany, Hitler's American Model upends understandings of America's influence on racist practices in the wider world.

Migrants at Work

Immigration and Vulnerability in Labour Law
Author: Cathryn Costello,Mark Freedland
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 0198714106
Category: Law
Page: 461
View: 4458
There is a highly significant and under-considered intersection and interaction between migration law and labour law. Labour lawyers have tended to regard migration law as generally speaking outside their purview, and migration lawyers have somewhat similarly tended to neglect labour law. Examining and clarifying the interactions between migration, migration law and labour law, the book particularly focuses on how migration status has a bearing on labourrelations and the world of work. Contributors to the volume identify the many ways that migration law, as currently designed, divides the objectives of labour law, privileging employer concerns over the supplyof labour over worker-protective concerns. In addition, migration law creates a particular form of status, which affects labour relations, thereby dividing the subjects of labour law. Written by leading scholars of labour law, migration law, and migration studies, this book provides a diverse and multidisciplinary approach to this field of legal interaction, of interest to academics, policymakers, legal practitioners, trade unions, and migrants' groups alike.
