In 1952, The Immigration and Nationality Act, or INA, was started in the United States. Before the INA, many different statutes governed immigration law but were not organized in a single location. The McCarran-Walter bill of 1952, Public Law No. 82-414, collected and codified many already existing provisions and reorganized the layout of immigration law. The Act has been edited many times through the years, but is still the basic body of immigration law.
The INA is divided into titles, chapters, and sections. Although it stands alone as A body of law, this Act can also be used in the United States Code (U.S.C.). The code is an assortment of all the laws implicated in the United States. Its fifty subject names are arranged in alphabetic order to make it more precise. Title 8 of the U.S. Code is one of the fifty titles and mostly deals with “Aliens and Nationality”.
When surfing the INA or other statutes you’ll often see reference to the U.S. Code citation. For example, Section 208 of the INA deals with asylum, and is also contained in 8 U.S.C. 1158. Although it is correct to Refer to a specific section by its INA citation or its U.S. code, the INA citation is more commonly used.
There is book named press 2 for English written by the Rob Sobhani who mentioned the U.S. immigration policy in detail and it is completely getting out of control. This is however having bad impact on the economy and the nationals as well.
