The United States admits between 700,000 and 900,000 legal immigrants per year, plus millions of long- and short-term visitors, including tourists, business travelers, and students. It is much easier to become a citizen in our country than in virtually any other, and many people dream of becoming Americans and making better lives for themselves. But since September 11, 2001, rules regarding immigration have been tightened as part of ongoing anti-terrorism efforts. ""Immigrants' Rights After 9/11"" explores these changes and the controversies that surround them: Should immigrants be granted full rights under the constitution? Should immigration proceedings be public, or need they be closed to protect national security? Key questions are addressed from both sides of the issues, with extensive citation of laws, statues and court decisions.
