This report represents the findings and conclusions of the United States Commission on Civil Rights with respect to the administration of justice in the enforcement of the immigration laws of the United States. The first section discusses past and present discriminatory provisions of immigration laws. The second section focuses on problems in the practices and procedures of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and the State Department in administering immigration laws and how those practices affect citizens, aliens, and intending immigrants. The third section concentrates on employer sanctions, a proposed legislative solution to immigration problems. The fourth section examines the constitutional rights provided to persons during various stages of the immigrant expulsion process and the effects that process has on persons other than those subject to deportation. The last section examines current INS complaint investigation procedures. (Author/MK)
