Farband Pledges Support of Johnson Proposals on Immigration

Download PDF for this date

Commending President Johnson for his recent message to Congress calling for a revision of the national immigration laws, the Farband-Labor Zionist Order today pledged its fullest support in helping to get through Congress legislation incorporating his proposals.

The pledge was contained in a message addressed to the President by Jacob Katzman, general secretary of Farband, following a meeting of the order’s executive committee, at which it was unanimously decided to support the action. The message stated that, until the changes proposed by the President are adopted and “such obnoxious provision as the national origins quota is removed, an element foreign to the spirit of America and contrary to the vision of the Founding Fathers will continue to shadow our image.”
