In addition to the information found via the Internet links, documents provided by the administrative agencies that deal with the immigration laws of the United States are important to understanding the nuances of interpretation and enforcement. This is particularly true in the case of the USCIS - an agency that willfully refuses to comply with federal law and promulgate lawful regulations. Instead, they issue non-binding policy memoranda that can be changed - retroactively - at will.
Please keep in mind that policy memoranda change often and do not have the force and effect of law. They are nothing more than someone's opinion, issued on a particular day. If the agency wishes to change them, they can and will make the change without notice or apology.
We have attempted to compile and make available some of the more significant documents. If you become aware of something that you feel should be added, or discover a broken link, please contact us.
