      U.S. Lawmakers Launch Adoption Bill for N.Korean Orphans

      U.S. congressmen have simultaneously introduced a bill to the Senate
      and the House of Representatives to step up humanitarian support for
      North Korean orphans adrift in third countries and promote adoption in
      American homes.

      Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kansas) and Rep. Ed Royce (R-California)
      filed the bill on Monday urging the U.S. government to "establish
      pilot programs that identify and provide for the immediate care of,
      and assist in the international adoption of, orphaned North Korean
      children."

      The bill calls on the government to deal pro-actively with thousands
      of stateless North Korean children in third countries and urges the
      administration to work out humanitarian support programs for them and
      report back to Congress.

      The bill is highly likely to pass since it is sponsored from both
      sides of the House.
