                Proclamation 7062 of January 14, 1998

                
Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and 
                Nonimmigrants of Persons Who Are Members of the 
                Military Junta in Sierra Leone and Members of Their 
                Families

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                In light of the refusal of the military junta in de 
                facto control in Sierra Leone to permit the return to 
                power of the democratically elected government of that 
                country, and in furtherance of United Nations Security 
                Council Resolution 1132 of October 8, 1997, I have 
                determined that it is in the foreign policy interests 
                of the United States to suspend the entry into the 
                United States of aliens described in section 1 of this 
                proclamation.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, by the power 
                vested in me as President of the United States by the 
                Constitution and the 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), hereby find that the entry 
                into the United States of aliens described in section 1 
                of this proclamation, as immigrants or nonimmigrants 
                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 entry into the United States as 
                immigrants and nonimmigrants of members of the military 
                junta in Sierra Leone and members of their families, is 
                hereby suspended.

                Sec. 2. Section 1 shall not apply with respect to any 
                person otherwise covered by section 1 where the entry 
                of such person would not be contrary to the interests 
                of the United States.

                Sec. 3. Persons covered by sections 1 and 2 shall be 
                identified by the Secretary of State.

                Sec. 4. This proclamation is effective immediately 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 is hereby authorized to 
                implement this proclamation pursuant to such procedures 
                as the Secretary of State may establish.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                fourteenth day of January, in the year of our Lord 
                nineteen hundred and ninety-eight, and of the 
                Independence of the United States of America the two 
                hundred and twenty-second.

                    (Presidential Sig.)
