Burke, The Colorado Lawyer December 2009 Vol. 38, No. 12 [Page 77]. © 2009 The Colorado Lawyer and Colorado Bar Association. All Rights Reserved. "...One might wonder how a one-page federal form can generate more than 200 pages of comment and instructions. To comprehend this requires an understanding of the history of the development of immigration law, the social and economic influences that have shaped it over the past 130 years, and the myriad unintended consequences that resulted from a system of laws that have for the most part been reactive rather than proactive in design. ... Immigration Enforcement is a well-written and readable book on complex subject matter. It would be a very good addition to the shelves of any human resources department. The intended audience is laypersons, but it is comprehensive enough to warrant a place in an attorney.s library."
