Title 3--
The President
                Proclamation 6749 of October 25, 1994

 

Immigration Measures With Respect to United 
                Nations Security Council Resolution 942

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                In light of the actions of the Bosnian Serb forces and 
                the authorities in the territory they control, 
                including their refusal to accept the proposed 
                territorial settlement of the conflict in the Republic 
                of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and of United Nations 
                Security Council Resolution 942 of September 23, 1994, 
                I have determined that it is in the interests of the 
                United States to restrict the entry to the United 
                States of all aliens described in paragraph 14 of 
                United Nations Security Council Resolution 942.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the 
                United States of America, acting under the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, including sections 212(f) and 215 of the 
                Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, as amended (8 
                U.S.C. 1182(f) and 1185), and section 301 of title 3, 
                United States Code, hereby find that the unrestricted 
                immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States 
                of aliens described in section 1 of this proclamation 
                would, except as provided for in section 2 of this 
                proclamation, be detrimental to the interests of the 
                United States. I do therefore proclaim that:

                Section 1. The immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into 
                the United States of aliens described in paragraph 14 
                of United Nations Security Council Resolution 942 is 
                hereby suspended. These aliens are: (a) members of the 
                authorities, including legislative authorities, in 
                those areas of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina 
                under the control of Bosnian Serb forces; officers of 
                the Bosnian Serb military and paramilitary forces; and 
                those acting on behalf of such authorities or forces;

                    (b) persons found, after September 23, 1994, to 
                have provided financial, material, logistical, 
                military, or other tangible support to Bosnian Serb 
                forces in violation of relevant United Nations Security 
                Council resolutions; and
                    (c) persons in or resident in those areas of the 
                Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina under the control of 
                Bosnian Serb forces found to have violated or 
                contributed to the violation of the measures set out in 
                United Nations Security Council Resolution 820 of April 
                17, 1993, and United Nations Security Council 
                Resolution 942 of September 23, 1994.

                Sec. 2. Section 1 shall not apply with respect to any 
                alien otherwise covered by section 1 where the entry of 
                such alien is in the interests of the United States, 
                including where such entry has been approved as 
                prescribed by paragraph 14 of United Nations Security 
                Council Resolution 942.

                Sec. 3. Aliens covered by sections 1 and 2 shall be 
                identified pursuant to procedures established by the 
                Secretary of State, as authorized in section 5 below.

                Sec. 4. This proclamation shall take effect at 11:59 
                p.m. eastern daylight time on October 25, 1994, and 
                shall remain in effect until such time as the Secretary 
                of State determines that it is no longer necessary and 
                should be terminated.

                Sec. 5. The Secretary of State shall have 
                responsibility to implement this proclamation pursuant 
                to procedures that the Secretary may establish.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twenty-fifth day of October, in the year of our Lord 
                nineteen hundred and ninety-four, and of the 
                Independence of the United States of America the two 
                hundred and nineteenth.

                    (Presidential Sig.)>
