My letter to the Editor as published last Friday said, "Also, just to be clear, visa overstays are not eligible for adjustment under 245(i). And, if they marry a US citizen, they could and still can adjust under 245(i). 245(i) generally covered (immigration lawyers, please correct me if I'm wrong) only those who entered illegally." The letter as I sent it said "they could and still can adjust under 245(a)", not 245(i) that your editing changed it to. As far as I am aware 245(a) is a separate section of the law which did not expire, and which does allow those who enter legally to adjust status if they marry a US citizen even if they overstay. Or am I in error?
Editor's Note: We apologize for the error. Your letter has been updated to reflect the correction.
