INS ORDERS NAMES KEPT SECRET

On Apr. 18, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS)
commissioner James W. Ziglar issued a new directive
ordering
state and local officials not to release information
about
immigration detainees. The rule bars state and local
employees
from disclosing the names of detainees in their custody.
Administration officials said the rule was prompted in
part by a
New Jersey suit seeking detainees' names [see INB
1/25/02,
2/22/02, 4/5/02]. [NYT 4/19/02]



TYSON MANAGER COMMITS SUICIDE

Jimmy Rowland, one of six former Tyson Foods managers
indicted on
Dec. 11 on federal charges of conspiring to smuggle
undocumented
immigrants to work at Tyson plants [see INB 12/21/01],
killed
himself with his rifle on Apr. 19. Rowland was free on
$100,000
bond and was to face trial next February. [AP 4/19/02;
