            RELIEF OF ELIZABETH EKA BASSEY AND HER CHILDREN

  The Senate proceeded to consider the bill (S. 1078) for the relief of 
M.S. Elizabeth Eka Bassey and her children, Emmanuel O. Paul Bassey, 
Jacob Paul Bassey, and Mary Idongesit Paul Bassey, which had been 
reported from the Committee on the Judiciary with an amendment to 
strike all after the enacting clause and insert the part printed in 
italic, as follows:

     SECTION 1. PERMANENT RESIDENCE.

       Notwithstanding any other provision of law, for purposes of 
     the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq.), 
     Mrs. Elizabeth Eka Bassey, Emmanuel O. Paul Bassey, and Mary 
     Idongesit Paul Bassey shall be held and considered to have 
     been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent 
     residence as of the date of the enactment of this Act upon 
     payment of the required visa fees.

     SEC. 2. REDUCTION OF NUMBER OF AVAILABLE VISAS.

       Upon the granting of permanent residence to Mrs. Elizabeth 
     Eka Bassey, Emmanuel O. Paul Bassey, and Mary Idongesit Paul 
     Bassey, as provided in this Act, the Secretary of State shall 
     instruct the proper officer to reduce by the appropriate 
     number during the current fiscal year the total number of 
     immigrant visas available to natives of the country of the 
     aliens' birth under section 203(a) of the Immigration and 
     Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1153(a)).
  Amend the title to read as follows: ``A bill for the relief of Mrs. 
    Elizabeth Eka Bassey, Emmanuel O. Paul Bassey, and Mary Idongesit 
    Paul Bassey.''.
  The committee amendment in the nature of a substitute was agreed to.
  The bill (S. 1078) was read the third time and passed.
  The title was amended so as to read:

       A bill for the relief of Mrs. Elizabeth Eka Bassey, 
     Emmanuel O. Paul Bassey, and Mary Idongesit Paul Bassey.
