  SUBJECT:       Presidential Determination Pursuant to Section 2(c)(1) of

  Pursuant to section 2(c)(1) of the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act
  of 1962, as amended, 22 U.S.C. 2601(c)(1), I hereby determine that it is
  important to the national interest that up to $33 million be made
  available from the U.S. Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund
  to meet the unexpected urgent refugee and migration needs, including
  those of refugees, displaced persons, conflict victims, and other persons
  at risk, due to crises in Guinea, the Democratic Republic of the Congo,
  Afghanistan, the North Caucasus, Serbia, and the Middle East.  These
  funds may be used, as appropriate, to provide contributions to
  international, governmental, and non-governmental organizations.  I
  understand that you will be forwarding a separate request to meet
  requirements for refugee assistance in Bosnia and Croatia.

  You are authorized and directed to inform the appropriate committees of
  the Congress of this determination and the use of funds under this
  authority, and to arrange for the publication of this determination in
  the Federal Register.

                                     WILLIAM J. CLINTON
