||This course will examine U.S. immigration policy as it is embodied in our laws and
procedures and will ask how our nation’s immigration policy reflect on our values as a
nation. The course will discuss whom we let in, whom we keep out, how do we treat the
people already here, and why. The course is broken down topically along the lines of a typical immigration law class, but this course is not concerned with the mechanics of the immigration laws. The class is intended to reach into the policy goals, the implications of policy, and the unintended consequences of poorly designed policies.
