Responding to increased fears of terrorism in the United States following the Paris attacks, the House of Representatives passed a Republican-backed bill Thursday that would temporarily freeze Syrian and Iraqi refugees' entry into the United States and revamp the vetting process. The bill passed 289 to 137, with near-unanimous support from Republicans and 47 Democrats backing the measure.

President Obama’s plan to shield millions of illegal immigrants from deportation may be in legal limbo, but that’s not stopping advocates for the undocumented, who are planning a new wave of events celebrating the initiative’s one-year anniversary.

The Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) is today releasing an important and timely report offering vital information on US immigrants who are potentially eligible to naturalize.

My colleague David North recently wrote a thought-provoking blog about American citizens who become victimized by what might fairly be called one-sided marriage frauds — marriages where they wed for love and don't realize that, from the alien spouse's point of view, it's a loveless marriage conceived of for the sole purpose of obtaining a green card.

Une nouvelle fois, il appartiendra aux neuf juges de la Cour suprême des États-Unis de se prononcer sur l'un des chantiers majeurs de la présidence Obama: après la réforme du système du santé en 2012, place à l'immigration en 2016.

Fraîchement élu, le nouveau président de la Chambre des Représentants, le républicain Paul Ryan, a affirmé dimanche qu’il refusait de collaborer avec le président Barack Obama sur l’immigration, écartant toute éventuelle réforme avant 2017.

A federal appellate court has delayed once again the Obama administration's controversial plans to grant some undocumented immigrants a reprieve from deportation. There is now a chance that the Supreme Court will consider the dispute sometime next year. In the meantime, some 4 million people living here illegally who had hoped for at least a temporary guarantee that they would be allowed to stay are still waiting.

  President Obama will ask the Supreme Court to clear the way for his far-reaching overhaul of the nation’s immigration system, administration lawyers said Tuesday, setting up a battle in the nation’s highest court over whether nearly five million undocumented immigrants can legally live and work in the United States.

The Obama administration said Tuesday it will ask the Supreme Court to reverse a lower court ruling and to back White House efforts to shield more than 4 million immigrants from deportation.

A federal appeals court said Monday that President Obama could not move forward with his plans to overhaul immigration rules by providing up to five million people with work permits and protection from deportation.
