The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society’s chief blasted Bush administration moves that may limit immigration to its lowest levels in more than half a century. With beefed-up security measures after Sept. 11 and the absorption of the Immigration and Naturalization Service into the new Department of Homeland Security, HIAS predicts that immigration will fall some 50,000 short of the 70,000-person quota set last fall, which would lead to the lowest number of arrivals in more than 60 years.
