Covers important provisions of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRAIRA), the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (AEDPA), and the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (Welfare Act)—all of which substantially impacted the conferral of immigration benefits and the status and rights of aliens in the United States. Also focuses on the practical impact of the new laws, analyzing them in a clear concise manner.
