Public Description:  

H.R. 454, the HRIFA Improvement Act, would expand the scope of the Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act (HRIFA) of 1998 (i.e., one of six amnesties granted since 1986) by: (1) granting amnesty to children whose parents applied for amnesty for them when they were minors, but who have since turned 21 and become adults (i.e., "aging out"); (2) including document fraud among the grounds of inadmissibility which may be waived in granting amnesty to a Haitian national under HRIFA; and (3) allowing Haitians who were previously denied amnesty to file a motion to reopen their applications.
