Yup, this is where the problem started. Put in place a varying immigration quota based on prior year usage of the system. Later discovered that everyone in Mexico is a "cousin" of everyone else so that family immigration can be utilized. Finally created a need for Teddy to formally author legislation to permit a block of Irish to immigrate since the hispanics and asians had effectively cut them out of the immigration share.
This discussion of the 1965 immigration act is about legal immigration only and does not address the shameful "look the other way" approach to the army of border crashers each year.

As bad as the 1965 "Immigration Act" was, Ted Kennedy's 1990 "Immigration Act" and signed by George Sr. was even worse. The bill raised legal quotas to nearly a million per year, established the diversity lottery which is responsible for the importing of terrorists from the Middle East, and started the H1-B program, the cause of the displacing of hundreds of thousands of native high tech workers over that of cheaper foreigners. All this while doing nothing to close the borders and stop illegal immigration.
Both of these bills have been disasters for the American people, it's obvious to most everyone. But will they ever be repealed? Not unless we stand up and make Congress do it.
I hope we have all learned our lesson. Never vote for a President from Texas. So far Texas is batting a big zero.
Americans don't realize how many immigrants used to return home, about one-third of the immigrants from Europe returned home permanently because they couldn't cut it here, we've eliminated that with welfare and all the government programs, now we keep the ones who can't find work or be self-sufficient.

The Kennedy's (Daddy Joseph, John, Bobby, and Teddy) cumultive influence upon the United States has done what WWII, the Cold War, and a few H-Bombs could NOT do; Destroy America from within.
And they say the Kennedy family is cursed? THEY are a curse upon America.
America became a fundamentally middle-class society, and our many European ethnic groups were brought together into a common national culture.

Good article; good find.
[Quoting article] "The ultra-liberal Americans for Democratic Action, the ACLU and the National Lawyers Guild joined the chorus. Further, the Communist Party USA supported higher immigration on the grounds that it destabilizes working Americans."
In fact, the National Lawyers' Guild was a Communist front organization, going back years. Scant wonder they were on the same side of the issue as Early Browder and Gus Hall and the CPUSA.

Can't be bumped high enough.
bump. To those who have eyes, this info provides much-needed perspective on our current roiling melting pot.
