Download PDF for this date

Legislation to investigate the recently-adopted displaced persons immigration law will be introduced at the special session of Congress to convene July 26, Rep. Jacob Javits, of Now York, told a Combined United Jewish Appeal meeting here tonight.

The motion will be presented by the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s special committee on DP’s by Reps, James Fulton and Frank Chelf, Rep. Javits revealed to the meeting. He denounced the present DP law as “calculated, brazen discrimination against Jews and deserving Catholics.”
