GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Amends the Cuban Adjustment Act to make an alien who returns to Cuba after admission or parole into the United States ineligible for such status adjustment.
Rescinds such adjusted status in the case of an alien who returns to Cuba before being granted U.S. citizenship, and subjects the alien to all the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act to the same extent as if the status adjustment had not been made.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
