Editor's Comments

In our May 17th issue, we asked our readers to comment on a change we contemplated making to the "subject line" for the email version of the Daily. We would like to thank the many, many readers who kindly shared their thoughts with us. The overwhelming response was to keep the date in the subject line, since many Daily readers apparently use this to sort through their archived emails when looking for an old issue of Immigration Daily. We would still like to help those readers who need some distinguishing characteristic in the subject line to sort our emails from spam. Happily, several of our readers gave us the perfect compromise solution which we are implementing with today's issue. The Daily's email version will carry the date as usual in the subject line, however, AFTER the date, the subject line will include the headline of the day. This will sufficiently distinguish the Daily in your inbox, and those who use the date to sort through archived email copies of Immigration Daily can continue as before. We trust this change will meet with your approval. Please feel free to send comments to
