AB THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1996 NATION THE SALINA JOURNAL T CONGRESS House OKs 2 bills cracking down on illegal immigrant! Legislation deals with law enforcement and public school education By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Cracking down on illegal aliens, the House passed two bills Wednesday — one focusing on law enforcement and the other letting states deny public school education to illegal alien children. Only the first had a chance of getting President Clinton's signature. The Senate was expected to reject the second bill — passed 254175 — and Clinton has said he would veto the measure that would allow children currently enrolled to stay in school. Supporters in the House said the bill would remove an incentive for foreigners to come here illegally and allow voters to decide whether they want to bear the expense of educating children who shouldn't be in the country. "This bill says, "Don't come to America and think the taxpayers of America are going to take care of you if you're here illegally,' " said House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga. Opponents said it would it would punish innocent children for the behavior of their parents and push thousands of young people into the streets. The far larger bill, which would nearly double the number of border patrol officers and speed deportation procedures, passed earlier in the day, 305-123. "This bill secures America's borders, penalizes alien smugglers, expedites the removal of criminal and illegal aliens, prevents illegal aliens from taking American jobs and ends non-citizens' abuse of the welfare system," said Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, who introduced the legislation. Republicans said the bill was Congress' first action against illegal immigration in years. Clinton unveils new bond proposal By The Associated Press CORAOPOLIS, Pa. — President Clinton unveiled details of a new government bond Wednesday that offers investors protection against inflation. Calling it "a new way to save," the president told a western Pennsylvania crowd that his initiative would provide "a solid rock upon which families build their futures and their dreams." He said the Treasury Department will auction 10-year "inflation protection" notes starting in January and costing as little as $1,000. The bonds' principal will be protected against inflation, as measured by the consumer price index. The new bond proposal will begin modestly. The government of- fered $55 billion worth of regular 10-year notes for sale last year, but the amount of securities sold with the inflation protection will be much smaller. The value of the bond, which pays interest twice a year, rises as prices rise. If inflation increases 3 percent in a given year, a $1,000 bond would be adjusted upward to $1,030 at the end of that year. U.S. civilian arrested for passing top-secret documents to S. Korea By The Associated Press ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A civilian computer expert working for naval intelligence was accused Wednesday of passing at least 50 intelligence documents to a South Korean agent. American officials were scrambling to determine the scope of the security breach. Robert Chaegon Kim, 56, was ordered held without bail at least until Monday, when a pre-trial detention hearing is scheduled in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, a few miles from the nation's capital. In a 20-page affidavit, the FBI said it has evidence that Kim, who worked for the Office of Naval Intelligence, passed dozens of classified records to Baek Dong-Il, a South Korean navy officer, during a five-month span earlier this year. If convicted of transmitting classified information to a foreign agent, Kim could face a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Kim, a Seoul native, became a U.S. citizen in 1974. He began working for the Office of Naval Intelligence in 1978 and gained a "Top Secret" security clearance a year later, court paper.3 said. le: 825-0555 IY MARTIN 'Greeley • Salina :e Companies • Home Oflkei: Bloomlnglon, Illinois SPECIAL PURCHASE $ 49 JOHNSTON & MURPHY "Santa Fe" Compare at 90.00 The weekends were made for the "Santa Fe," a casual kiltie tassel slip-on from Johnston & Murphy.
