The anti-immigrant immigration section of Wikipedia, a collaborative web-encyclopedia was the topic of our comment in the October 29, 2004 issue of Immigration Daily. We urged pro-immigration readers to add pro-immigration links which would hopefully, more accurately portray immigration issues in the US. We are pleased to note that a recent visit to Wikipedia shows that the anti-immigration or presence has decreased and a more balanced perspective on immigration is presented. Visit Wikipedia's immigration section and see for yourself.

Here's a great naturalization story that I thought may be of interest. According to the Associated Press, a woman hitchhiked 170 miles to Seattle so that she could attend her January 20th naturalization ceremony and be sworn in as a US citizen.
I need to let you know that I really enjoyed receiving Immigration Daily all these years. However, lately I have been unable to get this lucrative and extensive information you provide since I changed e-mail server at the office. My new e-mail is: [withheld] and I would appreciate if you would remit all of your e-mail to it as soon as possible. Right now I can only get to see it at my home and this is kind of hard if I have some info I need to keep. Thank you for all the good work you have done.
