Editor's Comments of the Day

ILW.COM serves as a platform for the exchange of immigration information on many levels. With the introduction of our case tracking application we hope to facilitate communication between aliens, employers and immigration attorneys. For people with cases pending at the INS one of most frustrating things is the feeling of helplessness during months of waiting. The case tracking application allows attorneys' offices to contact people instantly by e-mail when there is a change in the status of a case. For people with a case pending we hope that this application will give you greater peace of mind by helping you feel better informed of the status of your case. For attorneys we hope this will cut down on the number of phone calls from people asking about status as they come to have confidence that they will receive an e-mail whenever something happens in the case. ILW.COM's case tracking application may not make the INS process cases any more quickly. It will make communication easier.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,
As a teacher of ESL and Citizenship classes for primarily Latino populations I am flabbergasted by the lack of knowledge expressed regarding selective service laws. I was taking a poll the other day as to who was aware of selective service requirements. Most, apparently, are not. Can you tell me the method through which permanent residents are informed of this law? Something is being missed.
