HONOLULU (Pacific Islands Report, May 5) – The U.S. Department of the Interior says the Republic of the Marshall Islands will receive $579,380 to improve border management in Majuro and Ebeye.

"The grant will enable the Office of the RMI Attorney General and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to link together the computer systems of various national government agencies in Majuro and Ebeye to assist them in monitoring immigration," said Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Interior David B. Cohen. "We hope this will improve their ability to resolve existing immigration issues."

The grant comes from the Office of Insular Affairs Technical Assistance Program, which helps the insular areas address critical needs for which funding is not otherwise available. May 5, 2005
