Dear Editor:
Immigration Daily readers will be interested to know that Thar Abdeljaber, the Palestinian legal resident who was placed in removal proceedings for having failed to inform the INS of a change of address, had a good day in court on Monday, August 5, 2002, according to an article in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on August 6. Immigration Judge William Cassidy, persuaded by the repondent's assertion that "Nobody told me about this, ever," held that removal would apply only to aliens who were aware of the law and "willfully" broke it.

Now that the requirement of INA Section 265 is much better known than it was just a short while ago, a future argument of unawareness of the law may be difficult for immigration judges to accept. Promptly downloading Form AR-11 from the INS web site, and using it as needed, would be a good idea.
