LEGISLATIVE AGENDA OF THE POLISH AMERICAN CONGRESS

The Polish American Congress, with the joint efforts of our national member organizations and State Divisions and Chapters, has many accomplishments throughout its 60 years. Since being founded in May 1944, the Polish American Congress has always supported and championed the cause of immigrants and points to the following successful programs: establishment of the Displaced Persons program in 1948 (permitting more than 200,000 immigrants from war-torn Europe to enter the U.S.), the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (which granted amnesty for undocumented aliens who entered the U.S. before 1979), the Family Unification Act, the Diversity Visa Program, reform under section 245(i) and with Congressman Lipinski's efforts, a law permitting Polish and Hungarian parolees permanent residency in the US.
