Editor's Comments

Immigration Daily brings you immigration related judicial and administrative decisions that government entities make available on the Internet. Many decisions never make it to the Internet. The government entity may be selective or slow about what it publishes, or may not yet publish to the Internet at all. We encourage the submission of unpublished opinions to include in the Daily. ILW.COM is the ideal place to share successes with colleagues and potential clients. You can also help by sharing arguments that were not successful so that others may learn. E-mail decisions to or FAX to 212 563-4438.

This Day in Immigration

From November 8, 2000

"Attempt to Enter Requires Specific Intent The court in US v. Gracidas-Ulibarry, No. 98-50610 (9th Cir. Nov. 7, 2000), found that the district court committed a constitutional error when it failed to instruct the jury that the crime of attempting to enter the US after having been deported requires specific intent, but in this case the error was harmless because the evidence was overwhelming and uncontested that the Defendant had the specific intent."

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

I wholeheartedly concur with "Another Victim of INS/State Department/Congress." In my particular case I am still awaiting K-3 approval although the I-129f petition was submitted to Chicago in July and receipted in August. Totally impossible to get any status until it gets approved and forwarded to NVC!

The Department of Justice? Where is the justice in taking money from citizens and providing absolutely no facility for inquiries and, what appears to be, a random selection of petition dates for approval.

Another citizen out in the cold.
