To what extent immigration of Jews into the United States has been reduced as a result of the recent anti-immigration bill, is evident by figures made known today by the Bureau of Immigration. The report published covers the period of August and July, showing a total of 941 Jewish immigrants from various countries, classified according to race as “Hebrew”. In July and August, 1923, 13,922 immigrants, classified as “Hebrew”, were admitted.

The report of the Department of State, showing the status of the quotas from the various countries at the present time show that the total quota from Poland for 1924-1925 is 5,982 of which 888 visas were granted up to September 30, leaving a balance of 5,094 visas to be granted. The Roumanian quota for 1924-1925 is 603 and up to September 20, 119 visas had been granted, leaving 484. The quota from Russia (European and Asiatic) being 2,245, with 460 visas already granted, there remains 1,788.
