Final Immigration Bill to Be Decided on Friday

The conference of both houses of Congress to decide upon a final immigration law, will be held on Friday. It is expected that the conference will last several days before an agreement will be reached. The bill agreed upon will then be sent to both houses for vote, and after that submitted to the President.

While there is little possibility that the 2% of 1890 census quota will be changed in any way, it is expected that some change will be made in the wording of the Japanese exclusion provision.

Congressman Sabath, who is a member of the House conferees on the joint committee, is endeavoring to retain in the joint bill, the House provision exempting close relatives from the quota.
