In an interview on 17 October 2000, a representative of the Polisario Front in Washington specified that the issuance of birth certificates and identity cards to the Sahrawi people living in the refugee camps in Algeria was implemented 20 years ago.

This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
