Questionnaire for Cleveland Public Hearings on H.R. 2580

Files

Representative Feighan did not initially endorse H.R.2580 and was close to organizations such as the American Legion and the American Coalition of Patriotic Societies that resisted immigration reform. Feighan opposed several provisions of H.R. 2580 and on February 20, 1965, prior to holding subcommittee hearings, he held a public hearing in his district that included parts of Cleveland, Ohio and surrounding suburbs. The questionnaire shown here was one of 33 filled out and returned at the hearing. Only one of the returned questionnaires supported immigration reform. Chairman Cellar and Feighan had publicly feuded over immigration reform and on June 1, the Ohio representative introduced his own immigration bill.
