Supreme Court's ruling on Arizona's immigration law (2 of 2)

Welcome back.

Before stricter immigration laws were passed in South Carolina and several other states, Arizona became the first to implement legislation aimed at making it nearly impossible for undocumented immigrants to live or work in the state. Arizona lawmakers reasoned that the federal government had failed to solve the illegal immigration issue, so they decided to take the matter into their own hands.

Can an adoptee of American parents be deported?

Years ago, United States-citizen parents of adopted, foreign-born children were expected to file an application with immigration officials to ensure legal citizenship of the children. Some adoptive parents never got around to the process of naturalizing their children. As a result, the adoptees became legal residents, subject to deportation for law violations.

Bills would create new visas for skilled workers, entrepreneurs

Oftentimes, talented students come to the United States to get advanced degrees, only to be forced out after they have been educated.
