The fine folks at RapidVisa have contacted me to ask if I could share some of their original research. Since I have written several blog posts about immigration, they suggested I share their compilation of U.S. Immigration Laws in a nice, easy-to-read chart format. I will include a link to the chart here.
Please note that I have no affiliation with this organization and I have not been paid to offer their research here. RapidVisa helps people obtain visas for their loved ones visiting or moving to the U.S. from other countries. You can check out their services here. I offer their research only as additional information for my blog readers.
I have checked other sources on the Internet and no one else has compiled these laws in such a compact format. They list all of the immigration laws between 1790 and 2006 including interesting maps, photos and political cartoons. They explain that they do not include more recent executive orders such as DACA or other immigration policies because they are not laws that were enacted by the U.S. Congress. Nonetheless, their chart is still a very useful summary of U.S. immigration laws. Enjoy!
