ABSTRACT
The article focuses on an overview of United States immigration law and policy since 9/11. United States immigration law has been associated with political and economic trends and policies. This situation changed because of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The federal government has little regard of the distinction between immigration and terrorism. The USA PATRIOT Act has trampled the rights of immigrants.
