Plans for New Legislation in Next Congress

Johnson, Albert
July 1923
Congressional Digest;Jul/Aug23, Vol. 2 Issue 10/11, p299
The present 3 per cent law expires on June 30, 1924. On February 15, 1923, the U.S. House Committee on Immigration and Naturalization reported an immigration bill which is thoroughly sound in its principles. By reason of the legislative congestion at the end of the session, no action was taken on this bill. It is based on two essential and fundamental propositions, restriction and selection. The committee recommended a permanent percentage law and thus recognized the principle that the U.S. should never again keep its doors wide open.
