THE "PAROLE VISAS": Can Iranian Jews — or
Jews who fled any country because of persecution, or fear of
persecution — secure American "parole visas" outside of
the U.S. immigration quota, as do Jews now leaving the
This question is now coming to the forefront in connec-
tion with the present situation of the Jews in Iran who live
in mortal fear. It is also emerging in connection with the
feeling of uneasiness now growing among Jews in Argen-
tina, the largest Jewish community in Latin America.
"Parole admission" gives the Attorney General un-
refugees irrespective of the
world-wide immigration quotas of 290,000. The Attorney
General also has the authority to issue up to 17,400 "condi-
tional entry" visas to any alien who fled a Communist or
Communist-dominated country — or any country in the
Middle East — because of persecution or fear of persecu-
tion, on account of race, religion or political yiews.
The difference between "parole visas" and "conditional
entry" lies essentially in their relative degree of flexibility.
While the Attorney General may admit on parole an un-
limited number of aliens without taking into account their
national immigration quota, he is limited in "conditional
entry" by certain restraints of the definition of the ,term
"refugee" and by the fiscal year quota of 17,400. The "condi-
tional entry" is for a maximum period of two 'years, after
which the entrant must apply for permanent resident
One must not be under the impression that only those
who now leave the Soviet Union are receiving "parole
visas." More than 600,000 such visas have been issued to
Cuban refugees since 1965. Approximately 140,000 South-
east Asians were admitted to the U.S. on "parole visas" in
1975. During the 1956 crisis in Hungary, when thousands
fled the country invaded by Moscow's Red Army, some
32,000 were granted admission to the U.S. under "parole
BILLS IN CONGRESS: At present, there are three
proposals before Congress recommending a redefinition of
the term "refugee" and changes in other provision& in the
immigration law. They are all more liberal than the pre-
sent law. Most responsive to Jewish concerns is the bill by
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), introduced last March.
The other two proposals are: a policy statement of Associate
Attorney General Michael Egan, -and-a bill introduced by
former Rep. Joshua Eilberg (D-Pa.) in 1977. Legislative
action is anticipated this summer:
The Kennedy bill expands definition of displaced per-
sons to include also those uprooted by civil disturbances or
military operations. If a Jew were uprooted by such events
in Iran, he could be admitted to the U.S. as a displaced
person, although there were no persecutions on account of
his religion. An Argentine Jew could also be admitted as a
refugee or displaced person, since the Kennedy bill deletes
geographical limitations to the present definitions of who
can be clatsified as a refugee.
The Kennedy proposal also urges U\alimited "condi-
tional entry." It stipulates, however, that consultations
must be held with appropriate House and Senate Commit-
tees. Admissions of any large group of Jewish refugees on
conditional entry visas would, under the Kennedy bill, be
no more difficult than under the present system of `:parole
ASYLUM FOR NON-IMMIGRANTS: Never having
admitted refugees during the Nazi years, and remembering
the shameful and tragic act of not allowing the of
930 German-Jewish refugees who sought escape from Nazi
Germany in 1939 on board the ship St. Louis-- the U.S.
first turned to the use of special legislative authorization
after World War II, when thousands of Jewish survivors of
Nazism were clamoring to leave their DP camps.
The first legislative enactment was the Displaced Per- •
sons Act of 1948, which permitted the entry of 400,000
refugees. It was followed by the Refugee Relief Act of 1953
which brought to this country 214,000 refugees within
three years. The parole procedure system was decided upon
in 1952 as a flexible tool for dealing with large refugee
A new situation is developing now with regard to
foreign citizens who were admitted to the United States as
students, tourists and other non-immigrants. Thousands of
them now seek political asylum here fearing persecutions
in their native countries on account of race, religion or
political opinion. If granted asylum, such non-immigrants
can remain temporarily with their status to be reviewed
yearly. They are permitted to work.
