Here are a few immigration-related links which might be of interest. The Immigration Service of Canada (called Citizenship and Immigration Canada) has a website where one can check the status of an application for Canadian immigration. This might be a glimpse of what the future holds, once INS brings its case information online (we thank Stephen Yale-Loehr for bringing this link to our attention). The internet has websites arguing for and against immigration. The American Immigration Law Foundation has put together compelling arguments of how immigrants continue to benefit our nation. An anti-EOIR website has been referred to as stalking horse for the Attorney General. Our own site has a page giving internet marketing tips for immigration attorneys.

Felony Conviction Defeats Nationality Claim By Demonstrating Lack Of Allegiance
In Shittu v. Elwood, No. 02-0682 (District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, May, 2002), the court held that Petitioner, who was a permanent resident and who claimed that he could not be deported as an aggravated felon alien while his application for naturalization was pending since he claimed to be a "national" of the United States, was not entitled to habeas relief since his felony conviction objectively demonstrated his lack of allegiance to the United States and this was sufficient by itself to refute any evidence of his permanent allegiance to the US.
