Immigration involves family law, deportation, green cards, and more.
Immigration law practices following the rules the federal government has for determining who is allowed to enter the country, and for how long. It also governs the naturalization process for those who want to become citizens. Finally, when foreign nationals enter without permission, overstay their visit, or otherwise lose their legal status, immigration law controls how the detention and removal proceedings are carried out, if any.
Three federal agencies are charged with administering and enforcing immigration laws. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) investigates those who break the law, and prosecutes offenders. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) handles applications for legal immigration. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is responsible for keeping the borders secure. All three agencies are part of the Department of Homeland Security.

Getting your green card, and taking the exam
In the U.S. citizenship application process, after you have filed your naturalization application package, if you meet the requirements the Bureau of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will schedule you for an interview. During the interview, the examiner will test your English reading and writing skills by giving you a simple dictation test. You will also have to sign your name in English. If you are physically unable to read or write or are at least 50 years old and have lived in the United States as a permanent legal resident for at least twenty years, you do not have to take the literacy examination.
The examiner will also ask you some questions about the U.S. system of government and history to confirm that you have basic knowledge of these subjects. From the USCIS, below are questions you can expect to be asked, followed by the answers to those questions.
