The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is the supplement to the federal statutes. The CFR specifies the government's interpretation of the federal statutes. So the immigration regulations in the CFR provide the government's interpretation of the immigration statutes of the INA.
In order to maximize the chances of success with your immigration case, you should be aware of all the "rules" that may apply to your immigration case based on your individual situation, your background, and your particular facts.
The Code of Federal Regulations
Again, Immigration Cases Can Be Very Complex
In this segment we continue to describe the main sets of "rules" that you may have to be familiar with in order to maximize your chances of success with your immigration case. As in the previous segment, the sets of "rules" are listed from the general to the more specific. We hope that you will consider this brief overview of federal immigration law as one of the factors that may help you determine whether you need a lawyer for your immigration case.
Although the regulations themselves are not statutes passed by the Congress, the regulations are treated as binding law provided that the interpretations are "reasonable." Of course, what may be "reasonable" can vary quite a bit depending on the circumstances. Regardless, the majority of regulations that pertain to federal immigration law can be found at Title 8 of the CFR.
Continuing with our previous example regarding work authorization, although the statute itself may indicate that someone is authorized to engage in employment, the statute may not specify how to renew the employment authorization. Therefore, a simplified example of an immigration regulation that supplements a statute in the INA may specify that, "In order to renew employment authorization, a person must provide proof of _____."
In the next segment you will find a brief description of how another component of federal immigration law, agency interpretations, fits into the immigration law landscape.
The previous segment provided a brief description of one of the components of federal immigration law, the immigration statutes.
To recap, the immigration statutes in the INA are the written statements of law that are passed by Congress and they are the foundation of current federal immigration law in the U.S.
Consider that scheduling a consultation with a knowledgeable immigration lawyer and fully exploring all the options available in your particular situation may help you find a quicker or better solution.
