Disabled American Veterans Testify Against Liberalization of Law for Dp Admission

The Disabled American Veterans told the immigration subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee today that it would be “a national disgrace” to liberalize the Displaced Persons Act of 1948.

Charles E. Foster, legislative director of the D.A.V., told the subcommittee that wounded veterans “have heard too many stories of the arrogant, bitter, unpatriotic and ungrateful attitude of persons who have already been admitted to the United States under the D.P. Act.”

Mr. Foster announced that the D.A.V. adopted a resolution that “DP’s should be excluded until such time as American war veterans and their families are assured of full employment and adequate housing.”
