On September 28 ILW.COM conducted the first of the three part teleconference seminar "Immigration Implications of September 11th Tragedy". The volunteer speakers provided a wealth of useful information for an audience we estimate at over 1,000 inlcuding listeners in Alaska, Canada, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. As we advised readers in the the September 27, 2001, issue of Immigration Daily people who signed up for the series after approximately 4:00 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday were unable to participate live in today's session because the telephone service provider could not make sufficient lines available. The people who signed up but were not able to participate in today's teleconference will receive a cassette tape. We were unexpectedly required to leave our offices about ten minutes before the start of the seminar. If you received an e-mail confirmation for the seminar with the phone number and password, and tried to call our offices because you had problems entering the teleconference, we apologize that we were not available. If you received your e-mail confirmation with the phone number and password and were not able to call in, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An astute reader, Lori A. Pinjuh, has correctly pointed our that the issue addressed in Lake v. Reno, No. 99-4125 (2nd Cir. Sept. 12, 2000), which we included in the "This Day in Immigration" section of the September 28, 2001, issue of Immigration Daily was addressed by the Supreme Court in Nguyen v. INS, No. 99-2071 (June 11, 2001).
