Editor's Comments

In the Immigration in the Press section we provide links to immigration news on sites other than our own. It is an opportunity to provide opinions and analysis from a variety of viewpoints. Since these items are not on our site, we have no control over them. Different sites and on-line publications have different policies about how long their pages are available. Some make their archives freely available, some limit the time. Some sites may no longer be in existence. If you click on a link in the Immigration in the Press section and get a message saying the page cannot be found, the problem is not with the ILW.COM site but the other site to which we have linked. This can be frustrating, but we believe inconvenience of some missing pages from links in the archives is outweighed by the information we bring you in the Immigration in the Press section.


Forms on the Road!

There are many situations where you may want to use forms outside of your office:

  • From your home
  • From the homes of each one of your colleagues (without installing forms software at everyone's home)
  • From your home - but with a twist - you want your colleagues at the office to use the forms you filled out from home
  • From a client's office
  • From your satellite office
  • From on the road (at a hotel, for example)
IFillForms is a perfect adjunct to your existing forms software which you use at your office. For just one low annual fee, your entire office can use an unlimited number of forms for an unlimited number of cases from anywhere. No software to install, IFillForms works from within a web browser. No additional license fees to pay, people in one office can share one password.

You do not have to throw out your existing forms software to use IFillForms. IFillForms picks up where your current software leaves off.

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 over 8,000 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.

This Day in Immigration

From October 27, 2000

"According to a press release from the offices of Gibbs Houston Pauw the INS has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit challenging its vehicle seizure practices. The settlement covers more than 1000,000 vehicles seized by the INS in the Western Region between June 10, 1989 and September 17,1999. The notice of proposed settlement requires that any objections to the proposed settlement be submitted in writing to either Robert Pauw or Lorri Shealy Unumb at the Office Immigration Litigation by November 15, 2000. Under the terms of the settlement, INS has agreed to revise the notices given to vehicle owners, adopt guidelines to insure uniform non-excessive fines, train officers on standards for probable cause, provide copies of adverse evidence to vehicle owners, render decisions in writing and provide for reconsideration of fines. A thank you to Robert Gibbs for providing notice of the settlement and for a reminder that a Constitutional right to due process does exist."
