Extension of Remarks of Honorable Emanuel Celler on H.R. 2580

Document Viewer

Celler, the dean of the House in the 89th Congress, was the only member who was in Congress in 1924 when the Immigration Quota Act passed. He voted against it and had been an ardent foe of national immigration quotas for forty years. On April 28, 1965, Celler placed in the Congressional Record remarks “designed to correct mistaken notions” about his bill and “to provide accurate information on its purposes and anticipated effects.” This document indicates that Representative Celler had his remarks in the Congressional Record printed at his expense and distributed to build public support for his immigration bill.
