The Un-American
Immigration Law
(Continued from Page 1)
But Lehman saw the bill was not
only as a Jew but also as an
American devoted to the preser
vation of freedom. He not only
fought the bill with all his might
but by his example inspired
others, including President Tru
man. Those close to the Senator
knew that he lost a son in the
war against Fascism. Lehman was
the same Hitlerian concepts his
son had opposed. For the McCar
ran-Walter bill contained flagrant
racial discrimination and such
totalitarian provisions as arbit
rary arrest, “second-class citizen
ship and such totalitarian provi
sions as arbitrary arrest, “second
class citizenship,” deportation
with no right to trial, and other
Nazi ideas.
But Lehman was not alone.
Humphrey demanded a repudia
tion of what he described as Mc-
Carran's "fascislic nonsense." Sen.
Blair Moody asked, "why recog
nize the decisions of Nazi kanga
roo courts?" He said, "we do not
want a Gestapo operating in the
United States." Pastore pointed
out that "one would receive the
impression that anyone who
dared to disagree with the bill
was allied with the Pinks and
Reds. That is the impression the
proponents of the bill are trying
io create." The New York Times
condemned the bill as "racist, re
strictionist, and reactionary"
while the Washington Post vigor
ously endorsed the President's
veto message.
President Truman, when he at
tempted to kill the bill by vetoing
it, gave many reasons for his ac
tions. He described the dangers of
arbitrary powers authorized in
the name of security. He said, “no

standards of definitions are pro
vided to guide discretion in the
exercise of powers so sweeping.
To punish undefined ‘activities’
departs from traditional Ameri
can insistence on established
standards of guilt. To punish an
undefined ‘purpose’ is thought
control.”
Mr. Truman said minor immig
ration and consular officials
would be empowered "io act as
prosecutor, judge, and jury in de
termining whether acts constitut
ing a crime have been commit
ted,"
“Our resident aliens,” said Mr.
Truman, “would be more easily
separated from homes and fami
lies. under grounds of deportation,
both new and old, which would
specifically be made retoactive.
Admission to our citizenship
would be made easier. Certain
rights of native-born, first gener
ation Americans would be limit
ed.”
Seldom in American history has
a President drafted such a veto
message when his advisers urged
him so passionately to sign a bill.
It became known in Washington
that not only the Stale Depart
ment but also the immigration
and naturalization service, the
Federal Bureau of Investigation,
the Central Intelligence Agency,
and other agencies told the Presi
dent the bill was necessary for
"security purposes." When Mr.
Truman joined Lehman and the
handful of liberals who rallied
against the McCarran-Waller bill,
he joined the American people
and reaffirmed his faith in them
and in their ideals of freedom. For
Truman knew that many Ameri
cans were not born in America
bdt America was born in them.
He knew also that American-born
Congressmen had forced through
an un-American immigration law.
