"The regulation of immigration into the United States is within the power of Congress. Congress exercises this power by enacting laws to govern immigration and by designating groups of agencies to enforce the statutes. Although this power of Congress is not specifically enumerated in the Constitution, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the authority and power after Congress asserted it by enacting laws that controlled and regulated immigration."
