Immigration as Viewed by the Foreign Language Press

July 1923
Congressional Digest;Jul/Aug23, Vol. 2 Issue 10/11, p316
The article presents views of the foreign press on immigration laws in the U.S. Immediately after the war, restrictive immigration measures were tolerated as an experiment made necessary by the chaos of the times. But now that conditions have been readjusted continuation of the experiments is simply absurd. The restrictive immigration law is injurious to the country's interest and it should be revised. To restrict immigration further at a time of labor shortage is virtually to declare another war at the expense of consumers.
