On June 28, 1962, the United States Congress approved the Migration and Refugee Assistance Act (MRA). The act authorized Congress to appropriate funds to provide assistance to refugees. Under the MRA of 1962, a refugee was defined as a non-U.S. citizen who fled their home country because of persecution or fear of persecution on account of race, religion, or political opinion.
