A Subsciripticort To The Jewish News.
Washington (JTA) — Jewish ac-
tivists have emerged victorious
from a two-year campaign to de-
feat a congressional proposal to
impose new limits on the number
of refugees allowed into the Unit-
ed States each year.
While immigration reform is
far from dead, the House of Rep-
resentatives ended Congress'
quest to impose a new cap on
refugee with a mere 20-minute de-
bate and a voice vote Wednesday
The move allows more than
30,000 Jews from the former So-
viet Union to continue to come to
the United States each year.
Even members who spoke in
"reluctant opposition" to deleting
the cap from an immigration over-
haul bill did not vote against the
"Refugees are not a problem in .
this country and it's fantastic that ,
Congress recognized that fact,"'
said Karen Senter, co-director for
domestic concerns of the Nation- -

reforms scheduled for debate next
month does not include a refugee

• Currently, the administration,
in consultation with Congress, sets

refugees are expected to come to
the United States, including more
than 30,000 Jews from the former
Congress had proposed lower-
ing the annual slots for refugees
to 75,000 next year and to 50,000
a year after 1997.
The Jordan Commission, a
presidential panel assigned to
rewrite U.S. immigration policy,
had recommended a limit on an-
nual refugee admissions.
The House adopted the plan in
its proposed legislation, but law-
makers balked at including the
measure after a concerted lobby-
ing campaign by immigration ac-
tivists, including many Jewish
House members appeared to
accept the argument that
refugee policy needs to remain
flexible in order to meet the
changing global conditions
The vote "sends a message that
we're still a caring country," said
Richard Jacobs of the Council of
