Federal law allows the CIA director to bring as many as 100 defectors a year into the country and to grant them immediate citizenship. The CIA takes care of several hundred past defectors--the exact number is a secret. All defectors sign secret contracts providing them with resettlement benefits that can include lump-sum payments, annual stipends and help with health insurance, housing and education.
