                Immigration and Nationality Act, and Determination 
                Pursuant to Section 2(b)(2) of the Migration and 
                Refugee Assistance Act, as Amended
 
                Memorandum for the Secretary of State
 
                In accordance with section 207 of the Immigration and 
                Nationality Act (the ``Act'') (8 U.S.C. 1157), as 
                amended, and after appropriate consultations with the 
                Congress, I hereby make the following determinations 
                and authorize the following actions:
 
                The admission of up to 80,000 refugees to the United 
                States during Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 is justified by 
                humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national 
                interest; provided that this number shall be understood 
                as including persons admitted to the United States 
                during FY 2011 with Federal refugee resettlement 
                assistance under the Amerasian immigrant admissions 
                program, as provided below.
 
                The 80,000 admissions numbers shall be allocated among 
                refugees of special humanitarian concern to the United 
                States in accordance with the following regional 
                allocations; provided that the number of admissions 
                allocated to the East Asia region shall include persons 
                admitted to the United States during FY 2011 with 
                Federal refugee resettlement assistance under section 
                584 of the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and 
                Related Programs Appropriations Act of 1988, as 
                contained in section 101(e) of Public Law 100-202 
                (Amerasian immigrants and their family members):

                providing notification to the Judiciary Committees of 
                the Congress, you are hereby authorized to use 
                unallocated admissions in regions where the need for 
                additional admissions arises.
 
                Additionally, upon notification to the Judiciary 
                Committees of the Congress, you are further authorized 
                to transfer unused admissions allocated to a particular 
                region to one or more other regions, if there is a need 
                for greater admissions for the region or regions to 
                which the admissions are being transferred. Consistent 
                with section 2(b)(2) of the Migration and Refugee 
                Assistance Act of 1962 (22 U.S.C. 2602(b)(2)), as 
                amended, I hereby determine that assistance to or on 
                behalf of persons applying for admission to the United 
                States as part of the overseas refugee admissions 
                program will contribute to the foreign policy interests 
                of the United States and designate such persons for 
                this purpose.
 
                Consistent with section 101(a)(42) of the Act (8 U.S.C.
