Editor's Comments

Dear Readers,

Due to the terrorist attack we are unable to bring you the usual issue of Immigration Daily today. All members of the ILW.COM team are physically safe, but those of us who witnessed the attack on the World Trade Center from our offices in the Empire State Building and the collapse of the towers will carry those terrible impressions for a long time.

In the days, weeks, months and years ahead we will continue to bring you all the immigration news you need to know even as America grows into a new, less innocent, normality.


Dear Immigration Daily Readers:

The terrible events of today have impacted all of America including ILW.COM. Two members of our team witnessed the second plane crash into the World Trade Center from our offices on the 49th floor of the Empire State Building. We evacuated the building immediately, and have not been allowed in for the rest of the day. This edition of Immigration Daily was prepared for you from the homes of ILW.COM team members.

Our partners for our jobs site at, Career Engine, had offices at the World Trade Center. We currently have no news from our partners.

Our servers are located in Syracuse, New York. Our software and hosting customers have had no service interruptions today. We expect to get back to work as soon as the police will permit us to enter our offices. Members of the ILW.COM team in Connecticut and Silicon Valley will monitor our site and ensure its operation. Immigration Daily will continue to be published provided conditions in New York City permit. We will not be exhibiting at San Antonio since AILA has cancelled that conference.

Today, ILW.COM, just like all Americans, supports President Bush in taking actions necessary to ensure security for America and in finding and punishing the perpetrators of today's cowardly acts.

Many Americans may, in the heat of the moment, condemn all immigrants with a broad brush instead of those individuals, whether American or of another country, responsible for today's inhuman acts. This is not justified. We must remember the many patriotic immigrants who fought and died for America in many wars. Many of America's Generals and Admirals receive their stars in the Pentagon's Hall of Heroes. This hall has portraits of recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor, America's highest military decoration. Many of these heroes were immigrants. I urge everyone not to forget that fact today.

I support our country taking whatever steps are reasonable and necessary in reacting to today's acts of terrorism against us. However, we must all remember that our civil liberties are even more necessary today than they were before these terrorist acts. It was the country of the Bill of Rights that was attacked today. When our nation retaliates, it should not be against those very same Bill of Rights.

Yours truly,
Sam Udani, Publisher
New York City
