Testimony by the Attorney General and by representatives of the Department of State, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and the Office of Refugee Resettlement presented the Administration's rationale for its 1984 figures. Also presented were short descriptions of the government's efforts in resettlement, both overseas and domestic. Correspondence among the President, members of Congress, and Federal officials recommending refugee admission for FY 1984 is appended. (CMG)
