Immigration Policy, Law Enforcement and National Security

Immigration Policy, Law Enforcement and National Security

The paper argues that immigration policy is increasingly a result of national security concerns, despite the fact that the linkages between the two areas are not simple or well understood. The intersection of immigration law with law enforcement and intelligence are therefore unfamiliar but crucial issues. The paper is a transcript of a special session convened at the National Legal Conference on Immigration and Refugee Policy in Washington DC in 2003.
