Immigration

Procedure in admitting refugees

By December 4, 2016 No Comments

Refugees do not enter as immigrants with immigrant
visas, although it is contemplated that in due course they
will become lawful permanent residents. The statute di
rects that they may be admitted in the Attorney General’s
discretion and pursuant to regulations prescribed by him.

The Attorney General acts, of course, through the Immigra
tion and Naturalization Service, which has offices in various
foreign countries to accept applications for refugee benefits.
