ABSTRACT
The article discusses the immigration-related policy in the U.S., namely the McCarran-Walter Act in 1952 and the National Origins Law of 1924. An overview of the National Origins Law, which supports the innate superiority of one group of people over another, is offered. It states that the 1952 law is almost the same with the 1924 law which only differs on group quotas. Details on the revision of quotas, immigration laws, and the White House meeting which spurred refugee assistance are offered.
