H.Con.Res. 224 (ih) Urging international cooperation in recovering children abducted in the United States and taken to other countries. ...
Agreed to October 21, 1998
One Hundred Fifth Congress
United States of America
AT THE SECOND SESSION
Begun and held at the City of Washington on Tuesday,
the twenty-seventh day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-
Whereas many children in the United States have been abducted by family
members who are foreign nationals and living in foreign countries;
Whereas children who have been abducted by an estranged father are very
rarely returned, through legal remedies, from countries that only
recognize the custody rights of the father;
Whereas there are at least 140 cases that need to be resolved in which
children have been abducted by family members and taken to foreign
Whereas, although the Convention on the Civil Aspects of International
Child Abduction, done at the Hague on October 25, 1980, has made
progress in aiding the return of abducted children, the Convention
does not address the criminal aspects of child abduction, and there
is a need to reach agreements regarding child abduction with
countries that are not parties to the Convention; and
Whereas decisions on awarding custody of children should be made in the
children's best interest, and persons who violate laws of the United
States by abducting their children should not be rewarded by being
granted custody of those children: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That the Congress urges international cooperation in working to resolve
those cases in which children in the United States are abducted by
family members who are foreign nationals and taken to foreign
countries, and in seeing that justice is served by holding accountable
the abductors for violations of criminal law.
Clerk of the House of Representatives.
Secretary of the Senate.
