April 15, 1937
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The House Immigration Committee today unanimously reported out the Dies Deportation Bill with amendments protecting large groups of resident aliens.

The Dies measure provides for prompt deportation of criminals and certain other aliens. As amended, the bill is lenient towards thousands of aliens who might otherwise be deported. It protects persons with families abroad.

Although Representative Dies is a restrictionist in immigration matters, his bill now contains liberal provisions advocated by Chairman Dickstein of the Immigration Committee and the Labor Department.
