Editor's Comments

Some items in the Daily contain links to other websites. While we do check these links at the time of publication, some sites move their articles over time which results in invalid links. One of the letters today points out a broken link in yesterday's Daily, while another provides the new link to the article. Thank you, both.

INS Extends Designation of El Salvador Under TPS Program

Petition For Review Of Asylum Denial To Chinese National Denied
In Liao v. DOJ, No. 00-4046 (2nd Cir. Jun. 20, 2002), the court denied the petition for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals's decision denying Petitioner's asylum application and found that the State Department report on country condition tended to contradict Petitioner's claim of economic persecution in China, and that his claims of being threated with detention, being forced to leave his village and being deprived of valuable government services were conjectural, and that his claim that his house was destroyed suffered from inconsistencies in the proof offered and that this loss may not be attributable to the government, and that the Petitioner did not explain why his wife who is 51 years old would be a potential target for sterilization, and that the State Department report covering the entire period of China's one child policy going back to 1979 and covering all of the vast and varied areas of China had only a debatable relevance to Petitioner's claim.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:
I am the administrator of Minnesota's J-1 visa waiver program. I read the Immigration Daily regularly and usually find a lot of good information there. I often refer others to ILW.COM for reliable immigration information. So, I was very disappointed in your article The ABCs Of Immigration - State 20 Waivers For Physicians. At least as it relates to Minnesota, the information in that article is more than a year old and no longer accurate. I cannot speak to the accuracy of the information about other states. Minnesota does have a process for recommending waivers for a limited number of specialist physicians and has successfully done so. Even a quick look at our web page would have shown the authors that information. Waiver programs are changing rapidly and the biggest struggle is getting out accurate information. Perhaps the better approach would be to publish the web sites and contact names for the state programs and let us explain them. The current guidelines for Minnesota's J-1 visa waiver program, including specialty waivers, can be found at:

Dear Editor:
I am very interested in reading the article about the young man in Atlanta who is facing removal because of failure to change his address, but the link does not work and I can't find it on the Journal-Constitution's web site. Any suggestions?
