Editor's Comments of the Day

Today's featured article is "Business Visitors from Abroad - Tips and Traps for the HR Department," by Angelo A. Paparelli and Susan K. Wehrer. The authors provide guidance on the sometimes tricky issue of determining when a B-1 visa or admission under the visa waiver program is appropriate and which activities cross the line requiring another type of visa. There is only one thing clear about this issue, the deeper you delve into it the murkier the waters become. They caution people to seek the advice of an immigration lawyer because most businessmen and HR managers trying to tackle the issue on their own will be completely out of their depth.


Federal Register News of the Day

Duplication and Electronic Generation of Forms
The INS has issued a rule that eliminates the requirement that duplicated and electronically generated forms be produced on the same color paper and in the same page alignment used for the official INS forms. The rule also removes the requirement that duplicated and electronically generated copies of forms made by public and private entities be submitted for Service review and approval.


Cases of the Day

No Ineffective Assistance of Counsel Claim Absent Showing of Actual Prejudice
The circuit court in a summary order in Stewart v. INS, No. 99-2738 (2nd Cir. Oct. 6, 2000), upheld the denial of a writ of habeas corpus on the basis of ineffective assistance of counsel because regardless of the failure of his attorney to timely file an application, it was unlikely that the petition could have made a strong showing in support of the application and so he was not prejudiced.

Court Finds BIA Inadequately Considered Torture Claim
In Mansour v. INS, No. 99-3940 (7th Cir. Oct. 16, 2000), the court affirmed the Board of Immigration Appeals's (BIA) denial of Petitioner's claims for asylum and withholding of removal, but vacated the BIA's decision concerning Petitioner's Convention Against Torture (CAT) claim. The court was convinced that the BIA had not adequately considered Petitioner's torture claim based on his ethnic/religious affiliation.
