Tip of the Day

Immigration Articles on ILW.COM

ILW.COM publishes articles on any aspect of immigration law. We encourage the submission of articles from attorneys, paralegals, professors, scholars, human resource managers and anyone effected by immigration law. We will not publish something we know to be factually inaccurate. Beyond that, we actively seek a variety of opinions and viewpoints. Articles do not have to be footnoted as though we were a traditional law journal. The length of an article is best determined by the subject it covers. Some topics can be covered in a few paragraphs while others may require many pages. An advantage of electronic publishing is the flexibility to carry articles of any length. With close to 6,000 subscribers to the e-mail version having an article published in Immigration Daily is an economical way to express yourself, share your knowledge, and gain recognition in the field. Send articles in electronic format to or FAX to 212 563-4438.

Immigration-Related "Status Offense" a Civil Matter
In US v. Diaz-Paulino, No. 00-1241 (1st Cir. June 27, 2001), the court relied its ruling in US v. Tejada, No. 00-1461 (1st Cir. June 27, 2001), where is concluded that the provision of the Speedy Trial Act mandating that an arrested person be brought before a magistrate judge within 48 hours was inapplicable to the Defendant since he was arrested for an immigration-related "status offense" and was thus civilly detained.

No Remand to Apply for Suspension under NACARA
The court in Buzdygan v. INS, No. 00-3138 (7th Cir.

This Day in Immigration

From August 10, 2000

"7th Circuit Reverses BIA's Ruling on Military Desertion In Vujisic v. INS, No. 99-3184 (7th Cir. August 7, 2000) the circuit court reversed the Board of Immigration Appeals's finding the BIA erred in holding that punishment for desertion from military duty can never constitute persecution on account of political opinion and concluded improperly that changed country conditions negated Vujisic's fear of persecution. The court held that this particular case was not one of ordinary military desertion and Vujisic presented such compelling evidence supporting his fear of persecution that no reasonable fact finder could agree with the Board's decision."
