     REINTRODUCTION OF THE TERRORIST VICTIM CITIZENSHIP RELIEF ACT

                                 ______
                                 

                        HON. CAROLYN B. MALONEY

                              of new york

                    in the house of representatives

                         Friday, April 11, 2003

  Mrs. MALONEY. Mr. Speaker, today, I introduce legislation that would 
grant citizenship to the spouses and children of legal immigrants who 
were killed on September 11, 2001. Additionally, this legislation would 
grant honorary citizenship to those legal immigrants who were killed in 
the attacks. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, left 
approximately 100 surviving spouses and children of legal immigrants in 
jeopardy of being deported, because their immigration status was linked 
to a family member who was employed at the World Trade Center. While 
the USA PATRIOT Act allowed these individuals to stay in the United 
States until September 10, 2002, that reprieve has expired. These 
individuals should not be forced to leave the country because of the 
actions of the terrorists.
