                    as including persons admitted to the United States 
                    during FY 2014 with Federal refugee resettlement

                    The 2,000 unallocated refugee numbers shall be 
                    allocated to regional ceilings, as needed. Upon 
                    providing notification to the Judiciary Committees of 
                    the Congress, you are hereby authorized to use 
                    unallocated admissions in regions where the need for 
                    additional admissions arises.
                    Additionally, upon notification to the Judiciary 
                    Committees of the Congress, you are further authorized 
                    to transfer unused admissions allocated to a particular 
                    region to one or more other regions, if there is a need 
                    for greater admissions for the region or regions to

                    that assistance to or on behalf of persons applying for 
                    admission to the United States as part of the overseas

                    foreign policy interests of the United States and 
                    designate such persons for this purpose.
                    Consistent with section 101(a)(42) of the Act (8 U.S.C. 
                    1101(a)(42)), and after appropriate consultation with

                    following persons may, if otherwise qualified, be
