[Delegation of Authority No. 267]

Special Exemptions From Port-of-Entry Special Registration, 
Fingerprinting and Photographing by Patrick J. Kennedy (National 

    By virtue of the authority vested in me as Secretary of State, 
including the authority of Section 1 of the State Department Basic 
Authorities Act of 1956 (22 U.S.C. 2651a), as amended, and the 
authority conferred on me by 8 CFR 264.1 (f), I hereby delegate the 
following functions as indicated.

Section 1. Functions Delegated to Patrick J. Kennedy

    The functions vested in me as the Secretary of State by 8 CFR 
264.1(f)(1) to determine that special registration, fingerprinting and 
photographing requirements shall not apply to an individual 
nonimmigrant alien upon arrival in the United States are delegated to 
Patrick J. Kennedy. Such a determination may be made only for an 
individual nonimmigrant alien when Mr. Kennedy determines in writing 
that an exception from such requirements for such individual is in the 
national interest and will not compromise national security interests. 
Mr. Kennedy may exercise the delegated functions only in his capacity 
as a State Department employee operating under the direction and 
supervision of the Secretary of State.

    a. Notwithstanding any provision of this Delegation of Authority, 
the Secretary of State, the Deputy Secretary of State and the Under 
Secretary of State for Management may at any time exercise any function 
delegated by this delegation of authority.
    b. The functions delegated by this memorandum of authority may not 
be redelegated.
    c. The statutes, regulations, and procedures referenced in this 
delegation shall be deemed to be such statutes, regulations or 
procedures as amended from time to time.
    d. This delegation is in addition to delegations Nos. 253 and 254 
regarding Exceptions from Port-of-Entry special Registration, 
Fingerprinting and Photographing.
