The federal government primarily regulates immigration laws in the United States. There are, however, a few areas where states have some authority to make their laws. For example, states may legally issue driver and professional licenses to immigrants. Furthermore, while most immigration law enforcement falls under the jurisdiction of federal agencies like ICE and Customs and Border Patrol, state and local police officers may detain or arrest immigrants suspected of certain crimes. However, for the most part, immigration law is uniform throughout the country. So if you are unclear about a particular rule or regulation, your best bet is to contact an immigration lawyer or attorney in your state for more guidance.
