To round out the services ILW.COM offers attorneys we now provide web design. Just as in the past business cards and yellow page listings became business necessities, as more people turn to the Internet to find information having a website is becoming a business requirement.

Tip of the Day
Some people may not need the thorough and detailed coverage of immigration news provided by Immigration Daily. For those people ILW.COM publishes the Immigrant's Weekly, a newsletter designed to provide the latest immigration news for immigrants. Instead of focusing on immigration law, Immigrant's Weekly is built around the immigrant experience and is intended to meet the needs of immigrants for immigration information. For the Immigrant's Weekly we sift through the week's immigration items to bring you the ones that affect your life and give you the immigration news you need to know.
We encourage readers to write to firstname.lastname@example.org and share your immigration stories. We invite you to exchange your opinions on immigration issues and share your experiences with others on topics such as: What led up to your decision to move to a new country? Was it for a better job? a better education? to be with your spouse? What problems did you encounter? How did you decide which possessions to take and which to leave? What did your family and friends say? Did they encourage you in your decision or beg you not to go? And what did you find when you arrived? Was it as you expected, or nothing like you expected? If you or someone you know would like to receive free weekly immigration updates in the Immigrant's Weekly please subscribe on ILW.COM's home page or at http://www.ilw.com/weekly/.

"Delay of INS Delegation to DOL of H-2 Program
The INS and the DOL have delayed implementation of the July 14, 2000, final rule delegating the authority to adjudicate petitions for H-2A workers from the INS to the DOL. The final rule, which was to take effect on November 13, 2000, has been postponed to October 1, 2001."
Letters to the Editor
In your comments of October 30th, you note that "The PATRIOT USA Act is a great improvement over some original proposals which would have given the Attorney General authority to detain non-citizens indefinitely without opportunity for judicial review." You note also that "[n]o law can [be]expected to please everyone. These observations suggest that USA PATRIOT has carefully balanced enforcement and humanitarian concerns. What many don't seem to understand is that the bill's provision requiring that charges be brought within seven days of detention, does not prevent an individual, once charged, from being detained indefinitely. USA PATRIOT's capacity to jail innocent immigrants for indefinite periods of time without sufficient oversight and review remains troubling.
