Tip of the Day
Print This Page
In response to requests from readers, ILW.COM has added a "Print this Page" feature to Immigration Daily pages. Some readers pointed out that it they used the "print" button on the browser, some words at the right hand side of the page would be lost. Clicking on the new Print this page will automatically remove all advertising banners and menu strips, and give you a plain text version of the page formatted to fit a standard sheet of paper. Print this page allows you to print the Daily, cases, Congressional Record, Federal Register, INS, DOS, DOL items and featured articles to read when you are away from your computer and to save for future reference. You can find this new feature on the top and the bottom of every Immigration Daily page. We hope this feature will make the Daily more useful to you.

In US v. Robledo-Gonzalez, No. 00 CR 932-1 (N.D. Ill., Aug. 9, 2001), the court agreed with the Petitioner that the recent Supreme Court decision in INS v. St. Cyr does not support a dismissal of an indictment predicated on illegal entry after deportation.
Attorney's Failure to Warn of Deportation Not Ineffective Assistance of Counsel
In Williams v. US, No. 01 Civ. 401, 99 Cr. 1131 (S.D. NY, Aug. 14, 2001), the Magistrate Judge recommended that Petitioner's motion to vacate judgement be denied because his attorney's failure to warn him of possible deportation following a guilty plea did not render the attorney's legal assistance ineffective.
