THE SALINA JOURNAL WASHINGTON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1996 C5 T IMMIGRATION INS denies rushing through immigrants 1,300, not 50,000 may have lacked FBI clearance By HARRY F. ROSENTHAL The Associated Press WASHINGTON — No more than 1,300 immigrants may have become naturalized U.S. citizens without FBI clearance in the last year and even that number is "very preliminary," the country's immigration chief said Tuesday. Doris Meissner, commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, said reports that as many as 50,000 may be in that category were exaggerated and unfair. She said the INS is making a "thorough, manual review" of each case. Republicans charge that citizenship ' cases were rushed through by the INS in an election-year push to grant citizenship to 1.2 million potential Democratic voters. Questions about improper naturalization cropped up as Meissner announced that in the year ending Sept. 30, the INS deported 67,094 illegal aliens, a record. Meissner said the three-year total is 100,000, Immigration has become a major debating point in the presidential elec- tion. President Clinton boasts of beef ing up the Border Patrol, increasing penalties and strengthening immigration requirements. Bob Dole is stressing, in California, the social and economic costs of immigration and said he would deny most social services to illegals. The immigration agency also announced a change, as of Jast Thursday, that gives the INS administrative authority to reopen and revoke naturalizations obtained by fraud or misrepresentation. Previously, only a court could take such actions.

"This is a very disturbing series of events," Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Center for Human Genome Research and the senior author in the retracted studies, said Tuesday. •In a "Dear Colleague" letter mailed Oct. 1 to the genetics research community, Collins said that a junior scientist who participated in a major leukemia gene project had confessed "to a stunning series of data misrepresentations 'and outright fabrications, extending over a period of at least two years." In effect, the letter said, the junior scientist admitted that he lied about performing some experi-. ments and that he made up the data that he reported. The data was used both in the scientific publications and as his thesis for a Ph.D^ at the University of Michigan. The alleged fraud is being investigated by the NIH's Office of Research Integrity, Collins said. Officials at the University of Michigan declined to discuss the allegations, the graduate Student involved or to confirm that 'an investigation was under way at the Ann Arbor campus. NIH sources said the accused scientist worked for Collins at the University of Michigan, followed Collins to the NIH and then returned to the University of Michigan to receive his Ph.D. The existence of the Collins letter was first revealed Tuesday in a story in the Chicago Tribune, The letter was released to The Associated Press only in response to a Freedom of Information Act application. Senior researchers at the NIH said the false information does not affect the basic findings that DNA breakage leads to creation of an abnormal protein that is related to leukemia. "Collins is an exceptional guy. It is a tragedy these things are happening to him," said Dr. Robert Adelstein of NIH, who coauthored one of the studies, "He is being very honest about it." In his letter, Collins said the junior scientist participated in research used in six papers published in scientific journals. "Five published manuscripts contain data which we now believe are not authentic," Collins said. Wednesday, Oct. 30 12:00pm-6:00pm 10% Discount On Frames John IV I. Welsh, O.I).
