Maurice A. (Maury) Roberts, a major figure in the field of immigration, recently passed away. Mr. Roberts served in the Department of Justice handling important immigration matters during World War II and the cold war. During the 1960s and 70s he was Chairman of the Board of Immigration Appeals. He then went on to work at Interpreter Releases for 25 years. Juan Osuna, former managing editor of Interpreter Releases and currently a member of the Board of Immigration Appeals offers a personal reminiscence of this man who was so influential in the field of immigration for so long.
We have added to the "Immigration Implications of September 11th Tragedy" seminar page the citations for the first and second teleconferences.

ILW.COM publishes articles on any aspect of immigration law. We encourage the submission of articles from attorneys, paralegals,
professors, scholars, human resource managers and anyone effected by immigration law. We will not publish something we know to be
factually inaccurate. Beyond that, we actively seek a variety of opinions and viewpoints. Articles do not have to be footnoted as
though we were a traditional law journal. The length of an article is best determined by the subject it covers. Some topics can be
covered in a few paragraphs while others may require many pages. An advantage of electronic publishing is the flexibility to carry
articles of any length. With over 8,000 subscribers to the e-mail version having an article published in Immigration Daily is
