Senator Wadsworth Will Introduce New Immigration Amendment

(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Another amendment to the Immigration Law providing for the admission outside the quota of the wives and children under eighteen of aliens who came to this country legally prior to July 1. 1924, will be introduced by Senator Wadsworth of New York. Senator Wadsworth’s bill provides that the number admissable under this plan be limited to thirty-five thousand. This bill will constitute Senator Wadsworth’s promised final effort to obtain relief for the relatives of aliens, despite Senate Immigration Committee’s recent rejection of the Wadsworth-Perlman Bill.

Wadsworth intended originally to offer this bill as an amendment to the bill for admission of alien veterans of the World War and their wives and minor children, passed by the Senate this week, but Parliamentary objections were raised which prevailed upon Senator Wadsworth to offer his bill as an amendment instead to the Baron bill, now awaiting action in the Senate.

It is understood that discussion concerning the problem has also been taking place in the House Immigration Committee which indicates that if nothing else is done that committee will at least be willing to recommend that the present fifty per cent preference of the quota granted to anticultural aliens be reduced to ten per cent and the other forty per cent be allotted for preference to wives and minor children of aliens, which would enable a few more to come in each year.
