(CNS) -- forget that enjoy is in of the efforts of a bishop of refugee re- Bishop told an audi- 30 resettlement many Americans will threaten and economic secu- forget ndparents and their ]masses to the immi- strives to be of the words of and he said at 15-17 of Mi- gration and Refugee Services of the U.S. Catholic Conference, explained that pending immi- gration reform legislation would cut refugee admissions from its current 90,000 limit to 50,000 in 1997. "In effect, this legislation, by reducing the number of avail- able visas and constructing un- reasonable new eligibility re- quirements, would bar nearly 3 million Americans from uniting with their children, parents and siblings," Swenson said. "It is unfair to punish these family members who have been following the immigration rules, have approved visa petitions and who have been waiting pa- tiently for years," he continued. Catholic dioceses in the United States have resettled more than 800,000 refugees since 1975. Half of those new- comers were Vietnamese, 10 percent were from Cuba, 7 per- cent were from Bosnia-Herze- govina, 5 percent were Iraqi and 4 percent were Hmong. AUTO TOPS. SEAT COVERS.

Our Catholic as a well-educated and thoughtful of the 21 st century. 717 Frederica Owensboro, KY 42301 "This country, as well as the Catholic Church, has histori- cally provided a safe refuge for those in fear of their lives," said Swenson. "It has been one of the glories of the United States, which has set it apart from other nations." Other sessions at the confer- ence touched on ways to counter anti-immigrant sentiment and policies and how to adapt dioce- san resettlement programs as fewer refugees are admitted. John Franken, director of refugee programs for MRS, said with the end of a resettlement program for Southeast Asians as well as the cuts in U.S. refugee admissions, his agency will restructure and downsize, placing more emphasis on dioce- ses and volunteers. MRS staffers also briefed the diocesan directors on pending legislation that would end fam- ily reunification immigration programs; impose higher in- come requirements for visa eli- gibility; and exclude refugees for a variety of reasons including failing to apply within 30 days of arrival; limit immigrants' ac- cess to government-funded pro- grams, even after they become naturalized citizens.
