                         HON. ANTHONY D. WEINER

                              of new york

                      Wednesday, February 27, 2002

  Mr. WEINER. Mr. Speaker, I was unavoidably detained in my district on 
Tuesday, February 26, 2002, and I would like the record to indicate how 
I would have voted had I been present.
  For rollcall vote No. 39, the bill to amend the Immigration and 
Nationality Act to provide for the acceptance of an affidavit of 
support from another eligible sponsor if the original sponsor has died 
and the Attorney General has determined for humanitarian reasons that 
the original sponsor's classification petition should not be revoked, I 
would have voted ``yea.''
  For rollcall vote No. 40, the resolution expressing sympathy to the 
people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who were tragically 
affected by the eruption of the Nyiragongo volcano on January 17, 2002, 
and supporting an increase in the amount of assistance provided by the 
United States to the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo I 
would have voted ``yea.''
