Playing Defense

The Washington Times reports "Pro-immigration groups, after a topsy-turvy year during which they repeatedly were stung by defeat, managed some victories in the waning days of Congress, beating back some new crackdowns and rolling back some laws Republicans passed when they were in control." For the full story, see here.

7th Circuit Says Deference Is Not A Birthright Of BIA
In Kadia v. Gonzales, No. 05-1299 (7th Cir. Sep. 7, 2007), the court said "Deference is earned; it is not a birthright. Repeated egregious failures of the Immigration Court and the Board to exercise care commensurate with the stakes in an asylum case can be understood, but not excused, as consequences of a crushing workload that the executive and legislative branches of the federal government have refused to alleviate."

Dear Editor:
In the December 27th issue of Immigration Daily, you linked to Gregg Siskind's post titled "US Apologizes For Treatment Of Icelandic Tourist" but titled it "US Apologizes for Icelandic Tourist". The two meanings diverge, I'm afraid. Perhaps a post facto correction is in order to avoid misleading those who peruse your archives?

Honza Prchal, Esq.
Birmingham, AL

Editor's Note: We made an error in leaving out the word "treatment" at the end of the summary version.

Dear Editor:
As the year end and so much anti immigration echoes has been sounded I believe that those born here have all the right to be U S citizen as much as those who were born from the first Immigrants the Pilgrims. We as a nation should reflect on how much we have grown not only because of the natives but the immigrants that did come to this country and made our industries, medical and technologies contributions through their perseverance and dreams of a better tomorrow.
