Public Description:  

S. 1504, the Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act, would grant amnesty to 50,000 illegal aliens from Haiti who came to the U.S. before December 31, 1995. It also granted amnesty to their spouses and children, bringing the total number of Haitians to be amnestied to about 125,000. This provision was slipped quietly into an omnibus appropriations bill, and was fully endorsed by President Clinton who signed it into law.
