Five out of six members of the ILW.COM team are currently in San Francisco attending the AILA annual conference. In consequence, Immigration Daily will continue to have fewer news items than normal until our return to our office in New York next week. To make up, we will carry much more news items than usual for our issues immediately after we return to New York. We will of course cover breaking news at the conference for you.
