The Present Situation on Immigration Legislation

By Irving M. Engel

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1951

The author reviews the history of American immigration law, from the days of no limits, through the 1924 establishment of national quotas, to a proposed omnibus immigration bill under consideration at this issue's printing. The author strongly urges Jewish communal leaders to oppose the bill, which imposes new restrictions even within national quotas, and establishes new grounds for deportation.
