How is Patel's Immigration Law Library better than other immigration law reference books? The superior quality is apparent:

  • Stronger binding - increases durability, makes a lasting investment
  • Annotations - eliminates the need to flip back and forth between various statutory cross-references, by providing a succinct summary of each referenced statute immediately following each paragraph - The WHOLE Act is the ONLY fully annotated version of the INA
  • Footnotes - details the history of statutory changes - what changed
  • Appendices - covers all immigration statutes outside the INA
  • Topical Index - the extensive incorporation of user feedback repeated annually since 1987, much longer than any other immigration law publisher, gives this index its unsurpassed quality, ease of use, and comprehensiveness
  • Two-volume set - 8 CFR Plus (USCIS) and 20/22/28 CFR Plus (DOL/DOS/DOJ)
  • Comparative Table - at-a-glance view of all changes in 2003-2004 for 8 CFR Sections (pre- and post- Homeland Security Act of 2002)
  • Standing - contains standing of precedent I&N adminstrative decisions based on subsequent I&N decisions and federal court decisions

Letters to the Editor

Readers are welcome to share their comments, email:

Dear Editor:
I must express my support for Mr. Murray's attempt to overhaul an antiquated and abused immigration system. There should be a zero tolerance policy for illegal immigration and anyone who has committed any criminal act while in the US. I also support eliminating all family based categories except spouses and minor children of US citizens. Since becoming a citizen is a complicated process only those that have gone through such a lengthy ordeal should reap the just rewards.
