(a) IN GENERAL- Section 101(a)(15) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)) is amended-- (1) by striking `or' at the end of subparagraph (Q), (2) by striking the period at the end of subparagraph (R) and inserting `; or', and (3) by adding at the end the following new subparagraph: `(S) an alien who is outside the United States and who is the spouse of an alien who (i) is lawfully admitted for permanent residence and (ii) has filed an application under section 203(a) with respect to the spouse for preference status under section 203(a)(2), and the minor children if accompanying the spouse, subject to the conditions described in section 214(j)(1).'. (b) CONDITIONS OF ENTRY; TERMINATION OF STATUS IN CASE OF TERMINATION OF MARRIAGE- Section 214 of such Act (8 U.S.C. 1184) is amended by adding at the end the following new subsection: `(j)(1) With respect to an alien admitted as a nonimmigrant under section 101(a)(15)(S), the following conditions apply: `(A) The alien is not authorized to be employed in the United States. `(B) The alien is required to report to the Attorney General periodically in a manner specified by the Attorney General.
