BILL TABLED ON NARROW VOTE

Senate rejects immigration plan

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - The Senate, con-
sidering major provisions of a bill to
curb illegal immigration, voted
narrowly yesterday to reject a plan
that would have given fruit and
vegetable growers a temporary work-
force of foreign crop pickers.
The vote was 50-48 in favor of the
motion to table - in effect, kill-
the amendment meant to stem the
growing flood of illegal aliens across
U.S. borders.
THE MOTION to kill the proposal
was offered by the immigration bill's
chief sponsor, Sen. Alan Simpson (R-
Wyo.) Senators then turned to other amen-.
dments as Simpson sought to move

the legislation toward a final vote
today. If that proves impossible,
the Senate would vote next Tuesday at
the earliest.
The bill, similar to legislation that
died in the final days of the last two
Congresses, would penalize em-
ployers who knowingly hire illegal
migrants and would grant legal legal
residence to many millions of aliens
now living and working illegally in the
United States.
Simpson, fought to turn back an
amendment by Sen. Pete Wilson (R -
Calif.) that would allow thousands of
foreign workers to be brought in to
help harvest perishable crops -
chiefly in the West.

SIMPSON said his bill would
require government officials to
respond to requests for foreign
workers within 72 hours in emergency
situations.
Wilson said farmers in the West,
many of whom now use illegal aliens
to harvest such crops, need quick ac-
cess to foreign workers because they
cannot predict in advance if enough
domestic workers will be available
when the crops ripen.
The fight over the amendment erup-
ted as Simpson struggled to win
passage of the bill by the end of
yesterday. But he said debate would
continue today if necessary.
The bill would grant temporary
legal residence to many millions of

aliens now in the country and seek to
discourage the entry of more by im-
posing civil and criminal penalties
against employers who knowingly
hire them.
As approved by the Senate
Judiciary Committee, the ad-
ministration-backed bill called for
granting legal status to otherwise law-
abiding and self-supporting aliens
who entered the United States illegally
before Jan. 1, 1980.
Many illegal aliens are now in the
United States and estimates range
widely. Attorney General Edwin
Meese recently said more than a
million people are caught every year
trying to illegally cross the border.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A
charity that raised $237,000 last year
to grant children their dying wishes
spent only $10,000 for that purpose and
used the rest for fund raising, salaries
and luxuries including renting a
video tape player and x-rated movie,
authorities said yesterday.
"The reality is, thedream has
become a nightmare," Attorney
General Joseph Lieberman said of the
Genie Project.
IN A lawsuit aimed at closing down
the charity, Lieberman said the
money not spent on the.children was
used to pay the operators' inflated
salaries, hire a professional fund-
raiser, buy jewelry, and rent a car, a
videotape player and movie entitled
Sex Games.
"In the three years I have been at-
torney general, I have not seen a case
that hasemade me angrier," Lieber-
man said.
Francis Donnarumma, an attorney
for charity operators Michael and
Suzanne Bates, said there had been no
effort to defraud the public or misuse
charitable funds.
"THE GENIE Project has been runt
in a very public way," Donnarumma
said. "There should be no suggestion
it was some sham or device created to
divert funds. To the extent there is a
problem, I think it's going to be
something - and I'm not even con-
ceding this - arising from poor exer-
cise of judgment."
Lieberman said his investigation
has convinced him otherwise.
"What kind of charity would take

But as of now, no one knows for sure
who will replace Feusse.
"THE VERDICT IS still out," said
Norris, adding that if Josephson
doesn't appoint a minority vice
president, he "may put himself in the
position where he's doing a lot of
talking but not saying anything."
Roderick Linzie, MSA's minority
researcher, said he believes Cole
would be able to put in enough time as
vice president to satisfy the needs of
the office.
Feusse resigned because she said
she didn't realize that the vice
president needed to put up to 40 hours
at week at MSA.
Maggie Michaels of the
Pan-Hellenic Association said Cole
worked extensively last year on
various association projects, in-
cluding serving as public relations
director for intramural sports. Cole is
a member of Alpha Phi Alpha frater-
nity.
ACCORDING TO Kurt Meunchow,
head of MSA's Budget Priorities
Committee, Cole qualifies as a fiscal
conservative. Josephson was elected
with the Voice Party last spring on a
liberal platform.
But Muenchow thought Cole's con-
servative tendencies would com-
plement Josephson's more liberal
stances.
Richard Layman, who has worked
at MSA in various capacities for
several years, disagreed. "If people
aren't of a like mind they may spent
more time arguing than representing
students," he said.

advantage of dying children for per-
sonal profit?" Lieberman asked at a
news conference. "They did send
some kids to Disney World, and I'm
sure those children and their families
were grateful.
"BUT I cannot help but think of the
dozens of other children who died over
the past few years who could have had
their last wish granted had greed not
gotten in the way," he said.
Lieberman said his investigators
found that only five children had been
helped.
He said the Waterbury-based
charity, which has been the subject of
much favorable publicity, also used at
least $16,000 of the money it raised to
give personal loans to its officers.
THE STATE'S consumer protec
tion commissioner, Mary Heslin, said
the group's license to raise money has
been revoked. A lawsuit to put the
corporation out of business was filed
in Waterbury Superior Court on
Tuesday. The action was announced
yesterday.
Lieberman said the investigation
began after a consumer, who had rec-
eived telephone solicitation from the
Genie Project, called his office to find
out if the charity was registered.
"We went over the books and found
out they were not," he said.
"Basically, these people created a
corporation off of which they were
living. They were taking a lot more
out of it themselves than was being
given to kids."
