       IN SUPPORT OF THE TERRORIST VICTIM CITIZENSHIP RELIEF ACT

  Mr. TORRICELLI. Madam President, I rise today to support the 
Terrorist Victim Citizenship Relief Act, legislation introduced 
yesterday by Senator Corzine. While we all know the horror of the 
terrorist attacks of September 11, many who lost a loved during those 
tragic events face additional difficulties that our fellow Americans do 
not.
  One such person is Deena Gilbey, a young women living with her family 
in New Jersey. On September 11, Mrs. Gilbey lost not only her husband 
Paul, but because she had been residing in the United States on her 
husband Paul's work visa, she faced deportation upon his passing.
  There are still many unresolved issues that Mrs. Gilbey and those 
like her face. The Terrorist Victim Citizenship Relief Act is designed 
to provide relief to families that face potential deportation and other 
difficulties because of the death of their primary visa holder on 
September 11. It would enable them to address many of the daunting 
issues by conferring United States citizenship upon them.
  I want to thank Senator Corzine for introducing this legislation and 
am pleased to be a cosponsor of it. I urge my fellow Senators to join 
in support of this measure.
