Editor's Comments

ILW.COM announces with pride the addition of 12 new forms to our IFillForms. IFillForms allows you to fill and save anywhere you have access to the internet, whether office, client site, or home. We have add EOIR-28, EOIR-42A, EOIR-42B, I-90, I-129 Supplement E, I-129 Supplement O/P, I-129 Supplement Q/R, I-212, I-360, I-601, I-821, and I-864A. A complete list of available IFillForms and additional information on how to use it can be found at . We are continually adding new forms and updating the forms already included to make sure you have the most recent versions.

There are different criteria for evaluating forms packages such as price, ease of use, completeness of and ability to integrate with other systems. IFillForms offers the advantages of the most commonly needed forms and ease of use at a relatively low price compared to other packages. For some offices it may be useful as an adjunct to an existing system. IFillForms will not meet everyone's needs. We encourage you to look at it and see if it meets yours.

Tip of the Day

Improved Printing from ILW.COM

In response to requests from readers, ILW.COM has added a "Print this Page" feature to Immigration Daily pages. Some readers pointed out that it they used the "print" button on the browser, some words at the right hand side of the page would be lost. Clicking on the new Print this page will automatically remove all advertisements, sidebars, etc. and give you a plain text version of the page formatted to fit a standard sheet of paper. Print this page allows you to print the Daily, cases, Congressional Record, Federal Register, INS, DOS DOL items and featured articles to read when you are away from your computer and to save for future reference.

For pages which do not have the Print this page feature, 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."

  2. OR

    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."

  3. 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.
  4. Highlight the text in Internet Explorer: Rather than copying and pasting the information into your word processor, many readers have found that they are able to highlight the relevant text and then select the "Print" menu item under the "File" pull down menu of Internet Explorer. After selecting the Print menu item, select the "Selection" radio button under "Print Range." Otherwise it will still print the whole document even if you have highlighted only a portion of it. The information should print out with the appropriate width and without cutting out any text. Unfortunately, this method seems to work only in Internet Explorer.

"Attorney General Cannot Denaturalize In an en banc decision the 9th Circuit in Gorbach v. Reno, No. 98-35723 (9th Cir. July 20, 2000), affirmed a preliminary injunction preventing the Attorney General from denaturalizing citizens through administrative measures.
