The Acting Secretary of State to Minister Powell.


(Mr. Adee instructs Mr. Powell that the Department can not interfere with the contemplated expulsion of Syrians from Haiti except in cases of naturalized American citizens in whose behalf he would intercede to prevent expulsion upon proof of naturalization. If fraudulent naturalization is alleged the Department will have to judge the case, and if proof of fraud is shown by the Haitian Government or otherwise the Department will examine the matter, and upon establishment of fraudulent naturalization protection will be withheld.
