Congress enacted the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act of 1997 and the Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act of 1998 to provide permanent immigration remedies to refugees fleeing inhumane situations in countries toward which the United States has long demonstrated a foreign policy commitment.
Although this bill was not passed, it was a precursor to the Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act of 1998, which was founded upon the principle of providing the same humanitarian relief to similarly situated refugees.
