Comment: Make Sure You Get It - Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are combating spam through a variety of filters and blocking software to trap emails before they even reach one's email inbox. The upshot is that many ISPs are incorrectly categorizing legitimate email as undesired and preventing these emails from ever reaching your inbox. If you are experiencing email delivery issues, your ISP may have blocked Immigration Daily delivery. To reduce the chances of this happening to you in the future, please add Immigration Daily (editor@ilw.com) to your email program contact list, mark the email as "not junk" or add it to your "white list"--whichever is applicable. This lets your ISP know that you want the email delivered and reduces the chance of it being blocked. In spite of this, If you do not receive your Immigration Daily issue anytime, please contact the customer service of your ISP to report the problem and let us know of the problem by writing to webmaster@ilw.com.

Muslim World Expert Professor Shaul M. Gabbay, Phd, offers expert testimony in immigration cases from Muslim countries/societies, including the former USSR. Dr. Gabbay prepared reports and testified in 250+ Immigration cases nationwide (asylum, cancellation of removal, asylum interviews, hardship waivers) with a 93% success rate. Examples of what Immigration lawyers say: ... "He is a consummate scholar and passionate about his subject ... He makes a wonderful witness... He is riveting on the witness stand, helping us win nearly unwinnable cases with aplomb. He has won the praise of numerous Immigration Judges." (Svetlana Schreiber, Esq.) ... "He provided the testimony we needed in numerous asylum cases ... in virtually all of those cases, but for the expert witness testimony, I doubt the cases would have been approved, I recommend Professor Gabbay to anyone with issues involving Islamic society and culture." (Stephen Berman, Esq.) ... "His testimonies, whether written or oral, are credible, persuasive, and non-refutable. I have never lost a single case which had Dr. Gabbay on as an expert witness." (Ally Bolour, Esq.). Contact Professor Gabbay with any questions. He can also recomend country experts outside his specialty. Professor Shaul M.
