Immigration and refugee law and policy by Stephen H Legomsky( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2019 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This detailed course book of immigration and refugee law and policies in the United States mixes theory, policy, and politics with practice-oriented material. After an overview of US immigration law, an introduction to the basic terms and concepts, and a quick outline of the historical roots of the modern US immigration policy, the book grapples the immigration debate. Among the aspects considered in this context are the moral dimensions of immigration control, the relationship between immigration policy and multiculturalism, and the economic impact of immigration. The book then moves on to look at the sources of, and limits to, the federal immigration power, and immigration priorities in forms of quotas and preferences. A separate chapter focuses on non-immigrant priorities, that is, persons admitted for specific purposes such as study, business or pleasure. The course book continues with an overview of the inadmissibility or exclusion grounds, the admission procedure and deportability grounds. Possible factors for relief from deportability are examined in the following chapter, while a separate section takes a look at the deportation procedure. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 had far-reaching implications for immigration law and these consequences are synthesized in the chapter focusing on immigration and national security. The US handling of the refugee question receives a thorough survey; this is followed by a chapter on undocumented migrants. A chapter on citizenship concludes the course book that also includes extra materials such as simulation exercises and notes and questions

Inmigración y transformación social en Cataluña( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La presente publicación es el fruto de una investigación sobre la dimensión socioeconómica y jurídica del fenómeno migratorio, con especial referencia a su representación en Cataluña. Esta investigación, editada en dos volúmenes, ha sido promovida de manera conjunta por el Instituto de Estudios Autonómicos (IEA) de la Generalitat de Cataluña y la Fundación BBVA. El volumen primero, recoge estudios de carácter económico y social; por su parte, el segundo volumen aporta los trabajos relativos a la vertiente jurídica de la inmigración y al análisis comparado de su regulación en varios países. En este primer volumen se aborda la investigación del fenómeno migratorio a partir de tres grandes enfoques. Una primera gran área de estudio se centra en el análisis de los países de origen de los inmigrantes con el objetivo de comprender las causas de la emigración y articular, en su caso, actuaciones de ayuda al desarrollo y de cooperación exterior que permitan modular los movimientos migratorios combatiendo las causas que los generan. Un segundo ámbito de estudio de la obra se centra en las condiciones sociales que ofrece el país de acogida. Se trata de analizar de qué manera influye a la hora de elegir país de destino el grado de protección social que puede encontrar el inmigrante, teniendo en cuenta el mayor o menor desarrollo de redes de seguridad, tanto las públicas como particulares o de su comunidad de origen. Más allá de estos factores generales, que vinculan flujos migratorios a las condiciones relativas de los estados de bienestar, se abordan cuestiones específicas relacionadas con la situación económica y social de los países importadores y sus políticas de gasto social. El tercer ámbito de estudio se centra en el campo de la educación, la salud, la vivienda y el mercado de trabajo. Finalmente, y a modo de estudio de caso más completo, se ofrece un análisis que integra todos los aspectos macro y micro antes mencionados, referido a la comarca de Guissona (Lleida), donde se ubica una cooperativa de alimentación en la que trabajan aproximadamente unos mil inmigrantes (la mitad prácticamente de la población ocupada), que viven, se educan y comparten actividades lúdicas con el resto de habitantes de la población
