Editor's Comments

Rosalba Novoa of the Offices of Cyrus Mehta writes about a January 29, 2002, panel discussion titled Recent Developments in HIV Positive Immigration Asylum and Petitioned Cases: Consequences in Light of September 11th which was sponsored by the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and Gay Mens Health Crisis (GMHC). Four major areas were addressed: 1) HIV/AIDS and how it relates to ones ability to apply for immigration relief, including family and employment based applications, 2) issues regarding access to care and treatment for the HIV/AIDS population in the developing world, 3) impact of the USA Patriot Act and other recent legislation on HIV positive individuals, and 4) access to public benefits for the HIV/AIDS immigrant community in the US. The article provides timely and useful information on an area of immigration law that seems likely, despite the efforts of modern science, to continue to expand.
