                        Presidential Documents 



                Proclamation 6685 of May 7, 1994

 

Suspension of Entry of Aliens Whose Entry is 
                Barred Under United Nations Security Council Resolution 
                917 or Who Formulate, Implement, or Benefit from 
                Policies that are Impeding the Negotiations Seeking the 
                Return to Constitutional Rule in Haiti

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                In light of the political crisis in Haiti resulting 
                from the expulsion from Haiti of President Aristide and 
                the constitutional government, United Nations Security 
                Council Resolution 917, and the overriding interest of 
                the United States in the restoration of democracy to 
                Haiti, I have determined that it is in the interests of 
                the United States to restrict the entry to the United 
                States of: (1) all aliens described in paragraph 3 of 
                United Nations Security Council Resolution 917; and (2) 
                all other aliens who formulate, implement, or benefit 
                from policies that impede the progress of the 
                negotiations designed to restore constitutional 
                government to Haiti and their immediate families.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, by the powers 
                vested in me as President by the Constitution and laws 
                of the United States of America, 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 sections 
                1 and 2 of this proclamation would, except as provided 
                for in sections 3 and 4 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 3 of 
                United Nations Security Council Resolution 917 is 
                hereby suspended. These aliens are:

                    (a) all officers of the Haitian military, including 
                the police, and their immediate families;
                    (b) the major participants in the coup d'etat of 
                1991 and in the illegal governments since the coup 
                d'etat, and their immediate families; and
                    (c) those employed by or acting on behalf of the 
                Haitian military, and their immediate families.

                Sec. 2. The immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the 
                United States of aliens who are not covered by section 
                1, but who nonetheless formulate, implement, or benefit 
                from policies that impede the progress of the 
                negotiations designed to restore constitutional 
                government to Haiti, and their immediate families, is 
                hereby suspended.

                Sec. 3. Section 1 shall not apply with respect to any 
                alien otherwise covered by section 1 where the entry of 
                such alien has been approved as prescribed by paragraph 
                3 of United Nations Security Council Resolution 917.

                Sec. 4. Section 2 shall not apply with respect to any 
                alien otherwise covered by section 2 where the entry of 
                such alien would not be contrary to the interests of 
                the United States.

                Sec. 5. Aliens covered by sections 1 through 4 shall be 
                identified pursuant to procedures established by the 
                Secretary of State, as authorized in section 8 below.

                Sec. 6. Nothing in this proclamation shall be construed 
                to derogate from United States Government obligations 
                under applicable international agreements.

                Sec. 7. This proclamation shall take effect at 11:59 
                p.m., eastern daylight time on May 8, 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. 8. The Secretary of State shall have 
                responsibility to implement this proclamation pursuant 
                to procedures the Secretary may establish.

                Sec. 9. Proclamation No. 6569 of June 3, 1993, is 
                hereby revoked.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                seventh day of May, 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 
                eighteenth.

                    (Presidential Sig.)>
