Welcome to Immigration and Refugee Law Blog. Please bear with me as I get the website up and running over the next few weeks. The goal of IRLB is to inform readers about current events in the immigration field but also to stimulate debate. I will try to present multiple perspectives on an array of immigration-related issues. You may fervently disagree with some of the perspectives presented (and the perspectives presented will not necessarily be ones that I personally agree with). And that is the point. It’s only when we confront contrary views that we can start to develop a greater understanding of immigration issues.
