America May Cut Immigration Down to 10 Per Cent. of Existing Quota: Bill Introduced in Congress by C

Congressman Johnson, the Chairman of the Congress Immigration Committee, has introduced a Bill in Congress to out down the rate of immigration to the United States to 10 per cent. of the present quota.

Senator King has at the same time introduced in the Senate an alleviating bill which would provide that every intending immigrant abroad who is refused a visa by the American Consul in his particular country under the new powers, may appeal direct to the United States Department of Labour and Immigration in Washington.

When the appeal is lodged with the Department of Labour and Immigration, the American Consul concerned will be required by the Labour Department, if the Bill, which aims at providing a check on the actions of the American Consuls abroad, is carried into law, to give the Department a complete explanation of his reasons for refusing the visa.
