Commitment to Excelknce
Located on 12 Mile, West of Greenfield Road
Washington (JTA) — Jewish or-
ganizations are preparing a vig-
orous campaign against
President Clinton's proposal to
help fund welfare reform by re-
ducing benefits to immigrants.
At the same time, Russian
emigre communities around the
country are reportedly in a pan-
ic, with new immigrants scram-
bling to figure out what the
changes will mean for them.
Although short of his cam-
paign pledge to "end welfare as
we know it," the plan outlines
new measures to help wean im-
poverished families off welfare,
including job training, child care
and subsidized work programs.
To help pay for the plan, Mr.
Clinton has proposed cutting aid
directly to immigrants and indi-
rectly to refugees, threatening en-
titlements for tens of thousands
of newcomers each year, includ-
ing thousands of Jews from the
former Soviet Union.
Under the current system,
most Jewish emigres from the
former Soviet Union arrive in the
United States under the spon-
sorship of a previously arrived
family member, who promises to
support the newcomer for up to
In addition, the Jewish com-
munity, in conjunction with the
State Department, provides Eng-

for eight months. Following that
period, the emigres often go on
welfare as they continue to learn
English and look for employment.
Mr. Clinton's plan proposes ex-

three to five years that a sponsor

ty insurance, Medicaid or funds
through Aid to Families with De-
pendent Children are available
unless the combined family in-
come is lower than the national
Under Mr. Clinton's proposal,
Medicaid funding would still kick
in after the original three years,
but the other assistance pro-
grams would not be available un-
til after five years.
The president's plan includes
a six-year exemption for refugees,
or those who are admitted into
the country by demonstrating a
well-founded fear of persecution
in their homeland.
However, while the refugees
are eligible to enter the welfare
system for six years, if the wel-
fare system is revamped to re-
duce eligibility to two years, as
the president has proposed, then
