Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to provide that an alien seeking nonimmigrant U.S. entry for a brief stay occasioned by the serious illness or death of an immediate family member (as defined by this Act) shall be presumed to be entitled to nonimmigrant status unless the consular or immigration officer makes a fact- based determination that the alien: (1) is inadmissible; or (2) does not intend to leave the United States. (Current law presumes an alien to be an immigrant unless he or she establishes entitlement to nonimmigrant status.)

Provides for an expedited consular appeal (based upon an alien having a U.S. sponsor) under specified circumstances.

Directs the Attorney General to establish tracking procedures respecting the admission and departure of such aliens.
