Hein’s Electronic Document Reprint Series, #26

In 1996 there were three major laws passed that related to immigration:
  • The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act of 1996
  • The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996
  • The Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996
Each of these laws has provisions that have been contested by various groups over time.

The second greatly restricted any funding to immigrants, both legal and illegal. The third is criticized for a limitation that forecloses the power of the federal courts to remedy unjust convictions set forth by state courts.
