Senate Immigration Committee Accepts Bill with No Provision for Close Relatives


The immigration bill submitted by the Senate Sub-Committee on Immigration to the full Immigration Committee, and which contains no provision, similar to the one in the Johnson Bill, exempting close relatives of American citizens from the quota, has been accepted by the Senate Immigration Committee without change. The bill, which will, probably, come up for vote in the Senate on Tuesday, calls for a 2 percent quota on the basis of the 1910 census.
