               IN SUPPORT OF THE DEENA GILBEY RELIEF BILL

  Mr. TORRICELLI. Madam President I rise today in support of the 
private relief bill for Mrs. Deena Gilbey introduced yesterday by 
Senator Corzine. Along with thousands of Americans and citizens from 
over 60 nations, Mrs. Gilbey lost a loved one when her husband Paul 
died in the attacks on the World Trade Center.
  Unlike many of those families, Mrs. Gilbey was not a citizen of the 
United States, but rather a citizen of the United Kingdom. Therefore, 
for the last 8 years, she has been residing in the United States on her 
husband's work visa with their two American born children. Then, on 
September 11 she was widowed when, her husband who had safely exited 
the World Trade Center, chose to return to help in the evacuation of 
those who remained behind.
  In the aftermath of this horrific moment, Mrs. Gilbey found herself 
``out of status'' and facing the prospect of having to uproot her two 
young children from their home and return to the United Kingdom. The 
legislation Senator Corzine introduced will address this injustice by 
making Mrs. Gilbey a citizen so that she and her young sons can 
continue to live in this Nation that they have for so long called home.
  I am pleased to be a cosponsor of Senator Corzine's bill and urge my 
fellow Senators to join Senator Corzine and myself in support of this 
relief for Mrs. Gilbey.
