Download PDF for this date

The Senate today passed a bill requiring aliens who live in the United States to register twice a year and providing a penalty for those failing to do so of a fine up to $200 and a 30-day jail sentence.

The Senate also sent to the White House a bill giving alien males married to American women who are U.S. citizens non-quota status if the marriage occurred prior to January 1, 1948. The present law provides for non-quota status if the marriage occurred before July 1, 1932.
