Why Immigration Is Good For America

We are pleased to present a collection of Gary Endelman's 86 articles in Immigration Daily from 2000 to 2004. Attorneys who wish to discuss Mr. Endelman's ideas can meet Gary Endelman personally at the ILW.COM booth in the exhibit area at AILA's Philly conference on Friday, June 11 (12:30-1:30pm) and Saturday, June 12th (12:30-1:30pm). The foreword to the collection is reproduced below:

I am pleased to bring to ILW.COM readers this collection of essays by Gary Endelman. Mr. Endelman believes that American immigration policy should be based on whether immigration is good for America, not on whether immigration is good for immigrants. Unfortunately, most advocates for immigration do not believe that US national interest should be the standard to decide immigration policy, and also unfortunately, those who profess to stand for American interests do not see the value of immigration to our country. This places Mr. Endelman in the rare position of being pro-immigration on the grounds of American interests. His perspective is unique in another respect. Unlike most who write on immigration policy, Mr. Endelman actually understands how the system works on the ground - he is after all a practicing immigration attorney, not an ivory-tower intellectual. This gives his viewpoints a force missing among those arguing theory without a detailed understanding of how immigration law actually works. Mr. Endelman emphasises employment immigration themes in his essays, themes conspicuously missing from the center of much immigration policy discussion within the Beltway, where employment issues are consigned to the periphery of immigration debates. As a life-long Democrat who solidly supports President George W. Bush's Republican immigration vision, Mr. Endelman further defines his unique world-view in this collection of writings. Not all the articles are mere policy - several discuss technical points of immigration law. For example, his article "How to Win a Functional Manager Case" offers practice pointers on those filing such cases. Another example is his article "Go as Far as You Can: How Negotiated Rulemaking in Immigration Benefits America" breaks new ground in showing how the Negotiated Rulemaking Act of 1990 can apply in the immigration law context. To all those interested in immigration law and policy, Gary Endelman's 86 essays, written from 2000 through 2004, offer ample food for thought. Bon appetit! Sam Udani, Publisher, New York City

1990 Amendments Limit Availability Of Meaningful Naturalization Relief By A Court When Removal Proceedings Are Pending
In Zayed v. US, et al., No. 02-4011 (6th Cir. May 24, 2004), the court said that although 8 USC 1429 did not directly strip district courts of jurisdiction to review the denial of applications for naturalization while removal proceedings were pending, the statutory scheme limited the scope of judicial review and the availability of meaningful relief.

Dear Editor:
Regarding today's inquiry by the ex-wife of a conditional resident, there are many points a knowledgeable attorney might have raised, depending on the reason for the denial of the case to begin with. One would have to see the papers to answer her question.
