              AMENDING THE IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT

  Mr. BENNETT. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the Senate 
now proceed to the consideration of Calendar No. 693, S. 2812.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will report the bill by title.
  The assistant legislative clerk read as follows:

       A bill (S. 2812) to amend the Immigration and Nationality 
     Act to provide a waiver of the oath of renunciation and 
     allegiance for naturalization of aliens having certain 
     disabilities.

  There being no objection, the Senate proceeded to consider the bill.
  Mr. BENNETT. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the bill be 
read the third time and passed, the motion to reconsider be laid upon 
the table, and any statements relating to the bill be printed at this 
point in the Record.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
  The bill (S. 2812) was read the third time and passed, as follows:

                                S. 2812

       Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of 
     the United States of America in Congress assembled,

     SECTION 1. WAIVER OF OATH OF RENUNCIATION AND ALLEGIANCE FOR 
                   NATURALIZATION OF ALIENS HAVING CERTAIN 
                   DISABILITIES.

       (a) In General.--The last sentence of section 337(a) of the 
     Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1448(a)) is amended 
     to read as follows: ``The Attorney General may waive the 
     taking of the oath if in the opinion of the Attorney General 
     the applicant for naturalization is an individual with a 
     disability, or a child, who is unable to understand or 
     communicate an understanding of the meaning of the oath. If 
     the Attorney General waives the oath for such an individual, 
     the individual shall be considered to have met the 
     requirements of section 316(a)(3) as to attachment to the 
     Constitution and well disposition to the United States.''.
       (b) Effective Date.--The amendment made by subsection (a) 
     shall apply to individuals who applied for naturalization 
     before, on, or after the date of enactment of this Act.
