Cuban/Haitian Adjustment: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees, and International Law of the Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. House of Representatives, Ninety-Eighth Congress, Second Session on H.R. 4853, Cuban/Haitian Adjustment, May 9, 1984 [open pdf - 5MB]
From the opening statement of the Hon. Romano L. Mazzoli: "Today we will receive testimony from various panels on H.R. 4853, a bill introduced by Representative Peter Rodino, our chairman of the Judiciary Committee, which would grant permanent residence status to Cubans and Haitians who entered our country seeking asylum in the early 1980's. We have many witnesses here today who will attest to the fact that these people suffered much to reach the shores of our country. They were welcomed to our country and given a new immigration status, that of Cuban/Haitian entrants, status pending. Their status has been pending since 1981."
