Guam – Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo’s office has released copies of the Department of Interior’s [DOI] report to Congress analysing the compact impact statements that DOI receives from Guam and other jurisdictions impacted by FAS immigration.
In a letter to the Congresswoman Wednesday, Guam Senator Frank Blas Jr. requested copies of the reports which, Blas said, he has been unable to get from DOI.
Guam, the CNMI, American Samoa and Hawaii file reports with DOI each year providing details about the costs of services they provide to FAS immigrants. Those reports are analysed by DOI which files its analysis with Congress.
The reports are the basis for determining how much of the $30-million in compact impact aide each jurisdiction will gets every year.
In her response letter to Blas, Congresswoman Bordallo writes that she “remains committed to working with Governor Calvo, the Legislature, and my colleagues in Congress to ensure Guam receives adequate Compact-impact assistance funds.”
