            OVERSIGHT HEARING TO INVESTIGATE HESHAM HEDAYET

  (Mr. GEKAS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. GEKAS. Madam Speaker, as chairman of the Subcommittee on 
Immigration of the Committee on the Judiciary, I am scheduling an 
oversight hearing next week on the bizarre case of Hesham Hedayet. He 
is the Egyptian national who killed two people at the Los Angeles 
International Airport back on July 4.
  After that incident happened, the press reported that this individual 
had applied for a green card and was denied, and then later, was 
granted a green card based on the diversity application lottery that we 
have for visas based on diversity.
  Later on, we got so worried about it that I issued a letter to the 
INS commissioner asking for full access to that Hesham Hedayet file so 
that we could inquire into it. Madam Speaker, 2\1/2\ months later, we 
still have not received a reply and then, somehow, that became clear to 
the Attorney General that there were questions about this individual, 
and the Attorney General has asked the INS to clarify it.
  We are going to have an oversight hearing next week to determine 
answers to all of the inquiries about this matter.
