State Primary Legal Materials Online: Another Source

As a supplement to Monday’s blog post, note that Cornell's Legal Information Institute provides a useful Web page that brings together links to the primary legal materials (constitutions, statutes, cases) of the fifty states and the U.S. territories. Simply click the link provided here, and then click the link to the state whose materials you seek.

Immigration Policy Center

The Immigration Policy Center is the research arm of the American Immigration Law Foundation. IPC was established in 2003 with the mission to provide policymakers, academics, the media, and the general public with access to accurate information about the effects of immigration on the U.S. economy and society. The IPC attracts nationally recognized scholars as research fellows and guest authors, and publishes timely reports on the role of immigrants and immigration policy.

This is a good site to obtain current and accurate information on immigration issues. This cite provides concise and easy to read fact sheets on a number of important topics.
