Editor's Comments of the Day

ILW.COM, the Immigration Portal, provides immigration information, related services and products to immigrants, immigration practitioners, immigration professionals and employers. We are the only law web site with an ASP (Application Service Provider), and over 70 of our 630 attorney members on this system. ILW.COM is in the process of expanding this software to offer more features and functionality to users. We are currently looking to collaborate with companies that have an expertise in web-based fillable immigration forms solutions, and companies that can compliment our Case Tracking System by providing additional value through their software. If your company has the technologies and is interested in a partnership to mutual profit, please contact us at .

Tip of the Day

Printing From ILW.COM

Technical limitations on our site cause the edge of the text to be cut off some pages when printed on 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Until we can make changes to the menu strip which appears on all the pages on the site we suggest the following solutions:

1. Printing from your Internet Browser: Go to the "File Option" on the menu bar on either the Netscape or Internet Explorer then choose "Page Setup." Adjust the settings of the right and left margins to about 0.25 inches respectively. The top and bottom margins need not be adjusted. Hit "OK." Go back to your "File Option" and click on "Print" and then "OK."
If this does not work for you, print the page in landscape format. To print in landscape mode open the print dialog box. It will have a "Properties" button. Click on it and change the orientation of the paper from "portrait" to "landscape." Hit "OK" and "print."

2. Paste text into your word processor. In order to avoid printing our menu strip, place your mouse over the start of the article you want to print. Click down and drag your mouse to the end of the article while keeping the mouse pressed down. This should highlight the entire article. Now select the "Copy" menu item from the "Edit" menu of your browser. Start your word processor with an empty document. Select "paste." Now use the print function of your word processor.

Cases of the Day

Deportation no Reason for Shorter Sentence
[You will need Acrobat to read this file]
In US v. Maldonado, No. 00-1429 (1st Cir. Feb. 23, 2001), the court found that the fact that the Defendant would be deported at the end of his sentence was no basis for a downward departure from the sentencing guidelines.

Denial for Cook Who Performed Household Duties
[You will need Acrobat to read this file]
The Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals in Matter of Peak 2000-INA-140 (Jan. 25, 2001), agreed with the Certifying Officer ("CO") that there was no bona fide job opportunity for the position of domestic cook where the alien had previously performed cooking, babysitting and cleaning for the employer and the evidence failed to explain adequately who would not perform those duties.

DOS News of the Day

Child Citizenship Act of 2000
The Department of State Office of the Spokesman has issued a statement about the Child Citizenship Act of 2000 which greatly streamlines the process by which foreign-born children of US citizen parents can become citizens when they did not acquire citizenship at birth.

Immigration News of the Day

More Guest Workers? Not What We Should Pick
In an opinion piece in the Washington Post Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center of Immigration Studies, states that the US should "reject calls for a new guest-worker program and to get serious about enforcing existing immigration law."

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

What a difference a day makes! Unfortunately you published the wrong date in referring readers back to accessing their local senators via The link on the ILW.COM website was published on February 22nd, not the 23rd. It would be most helpful to publish these links on a regular basis so that immigrants can e-mail their senators, specifically those on the immigration committee. I would encourage all resident aliens to bookmark the links and constantly e-mail their opinions on immigration laws, particularly those which INS use to deport thousands of alien spouses. Senators need to know what is happening out in the immigrant community and of the many problems honest people have in conforming with immigration laws, not the known hordes hoping for partial relief or amnesties.
