President Bush On Different Treatment For Haitians And Cubans
President Bush said in a press conference, "the immigration laws ought to be the same for Haitians and everybody else -- except for Cubans. And the difference, of course, is that we don't send people back to Cuba because they're going to be persecuted. And that's why we've got the special law on the books as regards to Cubans. But Haitians and everybody else ought to be treated the same way."

Retroactive Application Of IIRIRA's Amendment To 212(d)(11) Is Constitutional
In De Jesus v. INS, No. 01-60807 (5th Cir. Nov. 7, 2002), the court held that the Petitioner failed to show compelling evidence against the Board of Immigration Appeals's decision that Petitioner was properly in exclusion proceedings because he left the US with the intent of smuggling an alien into this country and then acted upon his plan and held that IIRIRA's amendment to 212(d)(11) limited only Petitioner's eligibility for discretionary relief and did not infringe on a right he possessed prior to its enactment and that Congress held a rational basis for this rule, which was to deter the smuggling of aliens who are not immediate family members, and that thus the retroactive application of this IIRIRA amendment is not unconstitutional.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:
Thanks a lot for the tip on reinstalling my Acrobat Reader. In fact, I had a full version of Acrobat 4 on my PC and most likely it either won't open files with a comma in the file name or just simply is not compatible with the newer version (version 5.1) of Acrobat files.
