                                H.R. 848

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

     SECTION 1. PERMANENT RESIDENT STATUS FOR SEPANDAN FARNIA AND 
                   FARBOD FARNIA.

       (a) In General.--Notwithstanding subsections (a) and (b) of 
     section 201 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, Sepandan 
     Farnia and Farbod Farnia shall each be eligible for issuance 
     of an immigrant visa or for adjustment of status to that of 
     an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence upon 
     filing an application for issuance of an immigrant visa under 
     section 204 of such Act or for adjustment of status to lawful 
     permanent resident.
       (b) Adjustment of Status.--If Sepandan Farnia or Farbod 
     Farnia enters the United States before the filing deadline 
     specified in subsection (c), he shall be considered to have 
     entered and remained lawfully and shall, if otherwise 
     eligible, be eligible for adjustment of status under section 
     245 of the Immigration and Nationality Act as of the date of 
     the enactment of this Act.
       (c) Deadline for Application and Payment of Fees.--
     Subsections (a) and (b) shall apply only if the application 
     for issuance of an immigrant visa or the application for 
     adjustment of status is filed with appropriate fees within 2 
     years after the date of the enactment of this Act.
       (d) Reduction of Immigrant Visa Number.--Upon the granting 
     of an immigrant visa or permanent residence to Sepandan

     instruct the proper officer to reduce by 2, during the 
     current or next following fiscal year, the total number of 
     immigrant visas that are made available to natives of the 
     country of the aliens' birth under section 203(a) of the 
     Immigration and Nationality Act or, if applicable, the total 
     number of immigrant visas that are made available to natives 
     of the country of the aliens' birth under section 202(e) of 
     such Act.
