                       Office of the Press Secretary

_______________________________________________________
For Immediate Release                         July 7, 2000

MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF STATE

SUBJECT:       FY 2001 Refugee Admissions Consultations


In accordance with section 207 of the Immigration and Nationality Act
(INA), you are authorized to consult with the appropriate committees of the Congress 
concerning refugee admissions as follows:

     1.  The authorization of 80,000 refugee admissions, 76,000 of which are funded, 
	 during FY 2001, which would be allocated by specific
region as follows:  20,000 for Africa; 6,000 for East Asia (including
Amerasians); 3,000 for Latin America and the Caribbean; 10,000 for the
Near East and South Asia; 37,000 for Europe (including 20,000 for the former Yugoslavia
and 17,000 for the former Soviet Union); and 4,000 for the unallocated reserve.  
The recommended level of funded admissions is equal to the level assumed in the FY 
2001 budget request
(76,000).

     2.  The authorization of an additional 10,000 refugee admission
numbers to be made available for the adjustment to permanent resident status of persons
 who have been granted asylum in the United States.

     3.  The designation, pursuant to section 101(a)(42)(B) of the INA, of persons in 
	 Cuba, Vietnam, and the former Soviet Union, who, if they otherwise qualify for 
	 admission as refugees, may be considered refugees under the INA even though 
	 they are still within their country of nationality or habitual residence.
