Immigration Committee to Hold Hearing on Bills of Congressman Dickstein

The Immigration Committee of the House of Representatives yesterday, on motion of Congressman Dickstein of New York, decided to hold hearings starting Monday, January 27, on the six immigration bills he recently introduced with a view towards humanizing the present immigration law. Congressman Dickstein’s action in requesting hearings on his bills is in line with his intention announced in his last week’s speech on the floor of the House to push for early action on his bills.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin’s correspondent learns that Congressman Dickstein intends to invite Rabbi Stephen Wise and Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the American Jewish Committee, to appear before the Immigration Committee at the hearings.
