My purpose here is to peel away some of the confusion found in immigration law. I have endeavored in this book to distill immigration law into its most essential elements and principles. Although I have done this to make the subject more accessible for those who are new to the field, I hope that it might also be a tool for those with deeper knowledge. At the same time, this book is not meant to answer every question but to provide you, the reader, with the basics, to shine the light a little bit brighter and help you find your way through the labyrinth—a labyrinth described by Justice Irving Kaufman as bearing a resemblance to King Minos’s ancient Crete.
