Would Increased Immigration Benefit Business? Pro

Gary, Judge Elbert H.
July 1923
Congressional Digest;Jul/Aug23, Vol. 2 Issue 10/11, p314
The article presents views of the author on whether increase in immigration to the U.S. benefit business. He doesn't entertain the opinion that there should be no restriction in regard to immigration laws. On the contrary, he believes there should be restrictions. He doesn't think that immigration laws should permit immigration that could reasonably be construed as inimical to domestic labor of any kind, to the Government or to the public welfare. Restrictions upon immigration should be directed to the question of quality rather than numbers of foreigners coming to the country.
