The articles in this volume present the views of government representatives and others on law and policy affecting aliens, especially undocumented aliens, in the United States. Part 1 of the volume deals with legal rights and legal representation. Individual papers discuss the role and activities of the Immigration and Naturalization Service; aliens' legal rights in interrogation, detention, and arrest situations; deportation and exclusion proceedings; guidelines for lawyers representing aliens who face deportation or criminal charges; legal rights in the visa process; and procedures for appeal, judicial review, and motion practice in cases involving aliens. Papers in part 2 deal with possible law and policy changes to regularize the legal status of aliens or improve their plight, specifically addressing: current issues in immigration policy; policy developments and proposals for aliens under the Carter administration; criticisms of the Carter proposals; how immigration policy relates to labor policy, foreign policy, population growth, and naturalization; and legislative proposals concerning undocumented aliens.
