The Haitian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act of 1998 authorizes Haitian nationals and their dependents to apply to adjust their status to legal permanent residence. This report contains a breakdown of the numbers of Haitians who applied and the number who were approved as asylum applicants, parolees, children without parents, orphaned children, or abandoned children, or as the eligible dependents of these applicants. GAO found that as of March 2001, the Immigration and Naturalization Service had received 35,424 applications and had approved 1,454 of them. The Executive Office for Immigration Review had 107 applications filed and had approved 76 of them.
