AILA Doc. No. 19050135 | Dated May 1, 2019
WASHINGTON, DC - The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) is proud to release the 2019 editions of the Immigration & Nationality Act (INA) and the Immigration Regulations (CFR).
The INA is the basis of U.S. immigration law and includes the immigration-related statutes that appear in Title 8 of the U.S. Code but are not part of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The Immigration Regulations (CFR) two-volume set is an easy-to-use primary-source reference used by practitioners and judges alike. Title 8 covers Aliens and Nationality in one volume, with the second volume covering the immigration-related portions of Titles 6, 19, 20, 22, 28, 29, 42, and 45. The new 2019 editions have been updated with all new legislation and regulations released in 2018 and early 2019.
Among the new items incorporated in the 2019 editions are:
"These two references are the basis of U.S. immigration law, and every immigration lawyer should have them at his or her fingertips," said AILA President Anastasia Tonello. She continued, "Especially as USCIS continues to create new standards and requirements with no basis in the law or regulations, in-depth knowledge and easy access to primary sources of immigration law are vital for any successful practice. These two resources form the cornerstone of quality immigration counsel."
