From the opening statement of the Hon. Romano L. Mazzoli: "Today, the subcommittee will consider H.R. 3517, a bill to authorize the granting of permanent resident status to certain non immigrant aliens residing in the U.S. Virgin Islands. We wish to cordially welcome all the witnesses, especially those who have come from the Virgin Islands to testify on this legislation. Of course, on behalf of the subcommittee, I wish to accord a special welcome to Governor Juan Luis, Senators Sprauve and Laweatz, and to my good friend and colleague, the delegate from the Virgin Islands, Ron de Lugo, the author of this bill. To obtain the most information in the limited time available to us, we have divided our witnesses today into four panels: elected officials from the Virgin Islands, officials from the executive branch, community representatives from the Virgin Islands, and legal representatives from the Virgin Islands."
