fers the same services for up
to 18 months — although
most refugees haven't needed
assistance for more than 10
months, JFS officials said.
The new refugee status
interpretation is from At-
torney General Richard
Thornburgh and the Im-
migration and Naturalization
Service.
Lerner said some refugees
now are granted parole
status, which doesn't entitle
them to government
assistance.
"If they don't get parole
status, then they join people
from such places as Sri Lanka
and other countries awaiting
immigrant visas," Lerner
said. "It might be five years
before they can get into the
United States."
Lerner said many of these
people have been waiting
years to get into the United
States and will be forced to
wait longer because of Gor-
bachev's "brilliant" political
skills. Gorbachev has let "a
few Soviet Jews out of the
country," changing percep-
tions so that Soviets "are now
the good guys and the Jews
are the bad guys," Lerner
said.
"There's already been an
increase in anti-Semitism in
Russia because of glasnost,"
he added. "The freedom of
speech is now allowing Rus-
sians to make more speeches
in public against Jews."
"If something isn't done
soon, it (the refugee re-
interpretation) will stop the
flow of Jews coming out of
Russia by putting fear into
those who are still there" that
it will take them years to get
into the United States,
Lerner said.
"We're faced with a possi-
ble crisis in housing," affirm-
ed Elaine Zaks, JFS super-
visor of Resettlement Service,
who pointed out that "Ren-
tals are very high here (in the
Southfield-Oak Park area)
and people (Russian im-
migrants) are not able to get
jobs to support themselves
right away.
"People have been
managing up to this point,
but the real crisis may come
when the government
changes the refugee status,"
she said.
Lerner noted that apart-
ment rents in the Southfield
area range from $450 to $600
each month. The JFS would
have to pay rent and provide
food for more than the first
four months if the refugee
status is changed.
At present, Zaks said,
Soviet Jewish immigrants are
"working on a self-supporting
basis six to 10 months after
arrival."
