“The policy of restrictive immigration should be maintained,” declared President Coolidge in his annual message to Congress, delivered yesterday. “Authority should be granted the Secretary of Labor to give immediate preference to learned professions and experts essential to new industries. The reuniting of families should be expedited. Our immigration and naturalization laws might well be codified.”
