. —ABA study

Substantive immigration law is “complex, obtuse, and, at times, unintelligible.”—From Kevin R. Johnson, Ten
Guiding Principles for Truly Comprehensive Immigration Reform: A Blueprint

The inadmissibility and deportability grounds are broad, strict, confusing and unforgiving.— Supreme Court

Government and petitioners alike.”

the attitude of enforcement officers are heavily stacked against your client, and that there is little to no room
for compromise
