Editor's Comments

This issue of Immigration Daily comes to you directly from the floor of the exhibit hall at the AILA conference in Boston. The annual conference is an opportunity for immigration lawyers from around the country to meet and learn from government officials and each other about the latest developments in immigration law. A noticeable change from previous years is the profusion of exhibitors offering immigration related software and the range of software products. With the ease of exhchange of information over the internet both attorneys and clients will be better informed and their interactions will be more efficient. This portends a sea change in the way immigration law is practiced. ILW.COM is proud to be a leader in that change.

If you are attending the AILA conference and have not done so already, we invite you to stop by the ILW.COM booth 319 Boston Copley Marriott Hotel, 3rd Floor, University Hall, to meet the editor of Immigration Daily and other members of the ILW.COM team.

This Day in Immigration

From June 22, 2000

"Ineffective assistance of counsel is a serious matter.It is an argument attorneys may have to rely on when they take over a case in which the Immigration Judges decision was not in the aliens favor. In Escobar-Grijalva v. INS, No. 98-71469 (9th Cir., June 20, 2000), the 9th Circuit has allowed reason to prevail in holding that the Board of Immigration Appeals cannot apply the rule that every ineffective assistance of counsel case must be accompanied by an affidavit where the administrative record is clear.The real joy of this case is the excerpt of the record from the Immigration Court. Anyone who has been in Immigration Court can crack a knowing smile at the exchange leading up to the Immigration Judge declaring, Im really confused now. Anyone who has not attended an Immigration hearing can get a sense of the chaos which can reign.There is little humor in immigration law.Take a few minutes to read the case - and laugh."
