Charges that 10,000 aliens barred by the immigration law filtered in the U.S. during the past year and that the purpose of the immigration law is being constantly defeated by the pressure brought to bear by friends of excluded immigrants is contained in a series of articles being run by The New York Tribune.
One of the immigration aid societies, the writer declares, employs a $15,000 year attorney at Washington to represent it in these cases. The article also charges the stringent law has resulted in the stimulating the smuggling of immigrants into the country by way of Cuba and Mexico. Immigrant smuggling has obtained the status of a regular business on the border, he contends.
