Special Immigration Situations in the United States Hardback
Edited by Austin Banks
Special immigrants comprise a category of permanent employment-based admissions under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
While the special immigrant category is unique, it does bear some similarities to other admission categories that are authorised by other sections of the INA, including refugees and Amerasian children.
When civil unrest, violence, or natural disasters erupt in spots around the world, concerns arise over the safety of foreign nationals from these troubled places who are in the United States.
Provisions exist in the INA to offer temporary protected status (TPS) or relief from removal under specified circumstances.
A foreign national who is granted TPS receives a registration document and an employment authorisation for the duration of TPS.
This book discusses special immigration situations which include TPS; special immigrant juveniles; unaccompanied alien children; refugee admissions and resettlements; and examines asylum and "credible fear" issues in the U.S.
