Introduction
  • Freedom draws people to America economic
    freedom, religious freedom, and civil freedom.
    But which constitutional freedoms apply to
    immigrants and when do they apply?

4
  • This research project looks for resources on
    rights people have before they enter U.S. soil,
    rights they have as aliens with or without
    documentation, rights Lawful Permanent Residents
    may have, and whether those differ from the full
    rights of citizenship.

5
  • Current concerns are whether and to what extent
    terrorism and security issues affect the civil
    rights of aliens. Although regulating aliens has
    generally fallen to the legislative and executive
    branches, these recent concerns, particularly as
    related to hostile aliens, have stimulated
    response from the judiciary.

  • Federation for American Immigration Reform
  • This is the most useful site for immigrants
    rights
  • Yes, an alien, even an illegal alien, has
    criminal procedure rights.

15
Conclusion
  • Aliens who have not entered U.S. soil, or who
    are here illegally, have basic international
    human rights, but dont generally have rights
    under the Constitution, except for criminal
    procedure. Particularly, they do not have a
    right to be here. Security concerns have
    affected aliens rights in some ways, and this
    issue will continue to be debated.

16
Conclusion
  • Aliens rights progressively increase as they
    achieve lawful presence, and become Legal
    Permanent Residents, and finally, citizens. U.S.
    citizens rights are the same, no matter how the
    citizenship was derived.
