Case Coverage

Immigration Daily has raised the bar for case selection. We have found that many Circuit Court cases involve repetitive issues, are fact specific, and/or involve non-immigration procedural issues, and are omitted from Immigration Daily. Circuit Court cases will continue to be covered in Immigration Daily on a regular basis. All immigration-related Supreme Court decisions are included, while our coverage of district court cases has been confined only to the most significant ones. We hope immigration attorneys find the cases appearing in Immigration Daily noteworthy and useful in their immigration law practice. We welcome your feedback on this or any other issue.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.
