Title File 057
Transcript Senator Lehman has stated that the country is in need of a controlled Stream of fresh immigration. He made it known that he did not propose unlimited immigration; rather, he pro- Posed what he considered a conservative level. He proposes to abolish the national-origins quota system and substitute a unified-quota system. Briefly, 'his system would make possible the reunification of families, would bring "ito this country those with technical •'ud scientific abilities, would provide •i larger quota for the downtrodden Peoples of the world, and would promote the interests of the country in regard to foreign policy. •Senator John F. Kennedy (D- Mass. I. in a statement to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigra- "°n and Naturalization, said that "ie United States has always taken Pride in the fact that it is the world's •"citing pol. lie slated that the count's progress and growth have been "Ue in no little part to the diverse r''<-cs and backgrounds of its people, ,lri|i that Ihe country could reap future J^Wards Irom mixed citizenry, as it has '" the past. He alleged that the ['''honal-oiigins system conflicts with '"oi the Declaration of Independence a"(' the Constitution, and violates the ''"lilional American principles of de- e<'"<\ and justice.10 Representative Frank Thompson, '*■ (D-N.J.), testifying before the same ,''"ate Judiciary Subcommittee, stated 'it there are countless numbers of escapees from behind the Iron Curtain. These people have listened to the Voice of America, which urged them to flee from communism.11 In view of all this, is the United States to extend a helping hand to this suffering humanity, or is it to spurn the pleas for sanctuary? Those who favor liberalization of immigration quote the words of George Washington: Thc hosom of America is open to receive not only the opulent and respectable stranger, hut the oppressed and persecuted of all nations and religions; whom we shall weir v to a participation in all our rights and privileges, if hy decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment. We also hear quoted by the opponents ol our present immigration law the immortal words of Emma Lazarus, which are inscribed on the pedestal of that "lady of the harbor." the Statue of Liberty: Git>e me your tired, your floor. Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, Thc wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest- tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door! Opponents of the Walter-McCarran Immigration Act ask why should it not be forever thus in these United States of America? end We Still Have Some Choice A,"v time you make a decision you orifice an alternative. Certain occu- Lations automatically rule out others. , °r example, a career woman cannot Ol a full-time homemaker; an archae- '"gist cannot he a concert pianist; a "'"! explorer cannot be a season-to- ,as"n gardener; an air hostess cannot .'""Itaneously teach in a day-school. ! .'s likewise impossible for a Commu- i st Part) member or sympathizer to •|.| a loyal citizen of the United States.

Our bitter Day of Judgment is merely postponed until such action on their part can be safe and final. We know that this is true. We have been told it over and over again in Communist literature; and we have seen it happen to millions of people unable to defend themselves. We have abundant proof that world conquest by communism is no empty lineal. When we pause for serious thought, we realize how lucky we are, to be living under the Stars and Stripes, and not within the enclosure of the Steel Stockade. lint let's remember that infiltration lends to become saturation.
