Editor's Comments of the Day
Our classifieds section includes a request from an H-1B employer for legal advice/assistance in preparing for a DOL audit of LCAs. With almost 5,000 subscribers to the e-mail version of Immigration Daily, we are in a unique position to help employers and aliens find the legal advice and help they need. Unlike print media which requies days or weeks to preapre and distribute, we can get your message out with Internet speed. ILW.COM does not have the facility to relay messages or provide blind boxes, but there are many sites, such as Hotmail and Yahoo, which allow you to establish an e-mail account and retain your anonymity. We invite suggestions on other ways that ILW.COM can facilitate communication between aliens, employers and attorneys.
The long holiday weekend is no reason to miss out on immigration news. Past issues of Immigration Daily can be found in the
searchable archive of past issues. Even if you are away from your computer for a few days, the information is still available for you.
