Attempt to Prohibit
Wartime Immigration Expected in House By the Associated Press. Legislation to repeal the Chi nese Exclusion Act was steered today into the critical amend ment stage, with signs that op ponents would try to stop all immigration to this country for the duration of the war. Chairman Dickstein of the Immi gration Committee said he expected amendments to halve present immi grant quotas as well as to bar all immigration. The House wrangled for hours yesterday over the bill that would allow 105 Chinese a year to enter the United States and become clti aens. Proponents declared the bill would demonstrate United States Chinese friendship, providing a foundation which would help estab lish democracy in the Orient after the war. They said it also would help counteract Japanese propa ganda that the exclusion laws show an insincerity toward the Chinese. Representative Gossett, Democrat, of Texas, defined the measure as the “mast inexpensive investment in world peace that had yet been pro posed.” Opponents told the House it would be the beginning of a break down of United States immigration laws. They said it would not accomplish Its intended purpose—to place Chi nese on an immigration basis equal with European countries—but rather would create added Inequalities by basing Chinese immigration on race rather than on nativity. They referred specifically to a provision which would limit 75 per cent of the Chinese quota to Chinese residents of China. They main tained that immigration laws would have to be overhauled after the war, and this should not be started now in a “piecemeal fashion.” Economic arguments centered about contentions voiced to the Im migration Committee by the Ameri can Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Federation of Labor that immigration of Chi-1 nese would take away jobs from j returning servicemen. Supporters I of the bill replied that by creating an additional market in China for American products employment in this country would be aided.
