How does one become an American citizen? How does one obtain a green card? What determines deportability? Who can come here on a student visa? A tourist visa? A business visa? What happens if a foreign citizen marries an American? How does one become a refugee or seek asylum here? How are our borders secured? What about young children without legal documentation taken to the U.S. by a parent? How are our immigration laws enforced? These and many other aspects of U.S. immigration law will be explained. We will trace the evolving history of our immigration laws and then focus on the way in which the United States deals with foreigners seeking admission to our country, regulates their stay here, governs those wishing to remain here permanently and implements the process of naturalization to U.S. citizenship. Instructor: Peter S. Levitov, emeritus associate dean, International Affairs, UNL, and OLLI member Facilitator: Ross McCown
