Senate Rejects Plan to Put Canada Under Quota

Download PDF for this date

Subjection of Canada and Newfoundland to immigration quotas in addition to Latin-America was rejected yesterday by the Senate, by a vote of 37 to 29. This action came on consideration of an amendment by Senator Gould (Rep), of Maine, offered as substitute for the Harris Immigration bill. Mr. Gould’s amendment provided not only that Canada and Newfoundland should be added, but designated specific bases for determining the number of immigrants from each South American country.
