Editor's Comments

In light of the recent controversy that erupted over Rep. Tancredo's call for the deportation of a Colorado honor student, and Sen. Campbell's introduction of a private bill for that student and his family, Immigration Daily readers may find today's Featured Article of interest. In "To Repeal Or Not To Repeal: The Federal Prohibition On In-State Tuition For Undocumented Immigrants Revisited" Beth Peters and Marshall Fitz study this important political-legal issue (with no less than 32 footnotes).

Errata: Yesterday's Featured Article (Chart Of Nurse Licensing Requirements By State) was co-authored by Gregory Siskind and Karen Weinstock, and not by Gregory Siskind and Amy Ballentine. Cyrus D. Mehta and Parastou Hassouri's article in Immigration Daily's July 15th issue (The Prevalence Of Closed Hearings, Secret Evidence, And Denial Of Access To Information Troubling Trends In Recent Department Of Justice Directives) was expanded.

Featured Article

To Repeal Or Not To Repeal: The Federal Prohibition On In-State Tuition For Undocumented Immigrants Revisited
Beth Peters and Marshall Fitz write "The federal government's abstract interest in regulating the composition of this country's membership is often divorced from the practical interests states and municipalities have in assimilating local residents into the economic, social, and political fabric of their communities. A clear example of the disjunction between federal and state interests is presented in the area of post-secondary education for undocumented immigrants."

No Credible Evidence When Petitioner Admits To Lying And Documents Support INS's Determination
In McElwee v. INS, No. 01-9508 (10th Cir. Oct. 2, 2002), the court said that the Board of Immigration Appeals did not abuse its discretion in denying Petitioner's motion to reopen based on ineffective assistance of prior counsel since she could not demonstrate any credible evidence that the prior counsel could have obtained in the context where she had admitted lying to the US Consul about her children and where the birth certificates and marriage certificate appeared to be authentic and supported the INS's determination that she had an undissolved marriage in the Philippines at the time of her marriage to a US citizen.

Dear Editor:
