Mr. COLEMAN. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that the bill for 
the relief of Tchisou Tho be printed in the Record.
  There being no objection, the bill was ordered to be printed in the 
Record, as follows:

                                S. 1042

       Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of 
     the United States of America in Congress assembled,

     SECTION 1. PERMANENT RESIDENT STATUS FOR TCHISOU THO.

       (a) In General.--Notwithstanding subsections (a) and (b) of 
     section 201 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, Tchisou 
     Tho shall be eligible for the issuance of an immigrant visa 
     or for adjustment of status to that of an alien lawfully 
     admitted for permanent residence upon filing an application 
     for issuance of an immigrant visa under section 204 of that 
     Act or for adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident.
       (b) Adjustment of Status.--If Tchisou Tho enters the United 
     States before the filing deadline specified in subsection 
     (c), Tchisou Tho shall be considered to have entered and 
     remained lawfully and shall be eligible for adjustment of 
     status under section 245 of the Immigration and Nationality 
     Act as of the date of enactment of this Act.
       (c) Deadline for Application and Payment of Fees.--
     Subsections (a) and (b) shall apply only if the application 
     for issuance of an immigrant visa or the application for 
     adjustment of status are filed with appropriate fees within 2 
     years after the date of enactment of this Act.
       (d) Reduction of Immigrant Visa Numbers.--Upon the granting 
     of an immigrant visa or permanent residence to Tchisou Tho, 
     the Secretary of State shall instruct the proper officer to 
     reduce by 1, during the current or next following fiscal 
     year, the total number of immigrant visas that are made 
     available to natives of the country of the aliens' birth 
     under section 203(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act 
     or, if applicable, the total number of immigrant visas that 
     are made available to natives of the country of the aliens' 
     birth under section 202(e) of that Act.
