Congressional Digest;Jul/Aug23, Vol. 2 Issue 10/11, p303
The article presents views of the author on the bill S. 4222, an immigration bill proposed in the U.S. Senate. There are many immigrants from northern Italy in Pennsylvania, and they are an especially good class of immigrants according to him, and if some special legislation can be enacted to admit them, he would cheerfully agree to it. He doesn't agree that the same judgment should be passed on the people of other southern European countries. His experience has been with Greeks and Syrians, that they are poisonous elements in the population.
