Comment: Errata - We sent out the May 26th issue of Immigration Daily twice to a wrong email list of ours in error. Consequently some of you may have received multiple copies of that issue. Also, a few of our readers kindly reported that the links to articles in the May 27th issue of Immigration Daily did not work. These links have been fixed. Though we have production procedures in place to minimize errors, some errors do slip by occasionally; we regret the errors and thank our readers for pointing them out to us.
