Senate Takes No Action for Postponing National Origins Provision

The Senate adjourned on Monday without taking action on Congressman Chindblom’s resolution to postpone the national origins plan for another year. The House passed the Chindblom resolution on Saturday, following the defeat of a similar resolution introduced by Senator Nye, Senator Reed of Pennsylvania having prevented the vote being taken by successfully conducting a filibuster. Senator Nye stated Monday night that he plans to push through a resolution to repeal the national origins plan altogether during the special session which will be opened shortly.

The House adjourned without taking action on other immigration bills which had been reported Saturday by the House Immigration Committee. These measures will probably not come up until the regular session of Congress in December.
