Dear Weekly Editor:
I am trying to open the Guide for New Immigrants but it says “page cannot be displayed” How can I have a copy of that guide. Thank you.

Editor's note: The USCIS guide is now available on our website. See the article above.

Dear Weekly Editor:
Regarding your comment on new help pamphlet for new immigrants from USCIS and State. IMHO, it is a smokescreen. I have been married to a Filipino for 17 months now; flew over there to marry her and do everything legally, and we still don't have a visa and are not likely to get one. All empty gestures from your kinder, gentler thanks, and no vote. Who needs another Berlin Wall? The campaign contributors, that's who.
