Is Restriction a Labor Handicap to Industry? Pro

Emery, James A.
July 1923
Congressional Digest;Jul/Aug23, Vol. 2 Issue 10/11, p309
The article present views of the author whether a restriction on the immigration of labor in the U.S. be a handicap to industries. The National Association of Manufacturers is strongly opposed to unrestricted immigration and for a constructive policy of selective immigration. Suggested changes in the law that they think necessary are that if immigration, in view of continuing reliance of the past and the present upon it as supplementing the native labor supply, is to be based upon the 3 per cent basis, they urge that it be placed upon a 3 per cent net basis, with due consideration given to the immigration as it is canceled by the emigration from the U.S.
