RESTRICTIVE CLAUSE TACKED ON MEDICAID BILL:
House to vote on limiting funds

WASHINGTON (AP)-The House
voted yesterday to prevent Medicaid
money from being spent on abortions
for needy women unless the life of the
mother would be threatened by
carrying the fetus to full term.
By a 217-169 vote, the members
tacked the restrictive abortion
language onto a major health bill that
would expand Medicaid coverage to
children from low-income families and
spine pregnant women.
FINAL HOUSE passage of the full
bill was deferred until next week.
douse passage will send the measure to

an uncertain fate in the Senate, where
lawmakers have been unwilling to ac-
cept strong restrictions on Medicaid
money for abortions.
The intent of the original House
bill-backed by the admin-
istration-was to expand Medicaid
coverage to 5 million additional poor
children. About 12 million are now
eligible. It would also give free medical
coverage to 220,000 low-income women
during their first pregnancy and for two
months after delivery.
The current federal-state Medicaid
program does not provide coverage for

low-income single women and'couples
having their first child.
Rep. Harold Volkmer (D-Mo.) of-
fered the new abortion language as a
substitute for a part of the bill that

would have given Medicaid money for
abortions caused by rape, incest, or in
the event the life of the mother was en-
dangered.

ther investigation.
OF THE THREE University students
found to be in the "deportable"
category Wednesday, two were repor-
ted to be part-time students, which is: a
violation of their student status, and the
third was reported to fall into the
"other" category - which means the
student could be in the wrong school,
may not have a valid passport, may not
be attending school, or may be working
illegally, according to INS in-
vestigator Mike Hawes.
The five students whose cases require
further investigation, Hawes added,
"may be lacking in documents."
The students, at the time of the 5-10
minute interview, are requested to
bring their passport, I-94 form (visa), I-
538 form (necessary to renew I-94), a
list of courses and hours registered for,
a letter indicating he or she is in good
standing, a letter indicating tuition and
fees have been paid for the current
term, and evidence of his or her
residential address.
ALI (NOT his real name), who was
interviewed today, said the process
"was very smooth." He said he submit-
ted his forms to the agent, who looked
at them. He then filled out two forms,
one asking him if he was employed and
if this employment was authorized, and
had his picture taken. His 1-94 form was

then stamped, he said.
"They make a file out of your
documents," said Ali. He added that he
observed two types of files - one "like
his" that didn't have anything special
about it, and one that "had special
marks on it."
Hassan (not his real name) said that
although his interview was "just fine,"
he didn't know what would happen to an
Iranian friend of his whose passport
was lost in the mail.
"IT DEPENDS on if they're nice or
not - if they want to be tough, they can
find reasons," he said.
The students whose interview didn't
go smoothly like Ali's and Hassan's
have two choices, according to Hawes
- they can either "go home voluntarily
or come before immigration or depor-
tation judges," who, he added, will then
ask the student to show why they
shouldn't be deported.
Hawes added that INS already is
trying to resolve some cases, which in-
clude restoring the status of some
students currently in they pending
category, especially if they can produce
missing documents which required fur-
ther investigation of their cases.
Those students not interviewed in
Ann Arbor by today will have to report
to the office in Detroit by the 14th, ac-
cording to Wagus.
