IN APPEAL FOR BAN ON CHEAP FOREIGN LABOR Gompers and Com mander Quinn Ad vance Arguments as to Why Alien Should Be Limited Washington," March 29. A joint at tack, on unrestricted immigration is made by John R. Quinn, National Com mander of the American Legion, and Samuel Gompers, President of the American Federation of Labor, in state ments to appear in the April issue of the American Federationist," the official organ of the labor body, advances proofs of which were made public this week. Both declare that America is in dan ger unless there is the strictest kind of immigration. Both indicate that the American Legion and the American Fe deration of Labor are in agreement upon the desirability of absolute stoppage of immigration for the present, but, in the absence of such stoppage, they demand the , strictest possible limitation. "The joining of these two forces to combat propaganda for unrestricted im migration," asserted the Labor Federa tion in making public the statements of Commander Quinn and President Gom pers "Is offered as an indication of the fact that the great masses of the Amer ican people are entirely out of sympathy with the attacks being levelled at the Johnson bill, or at any proposal to re strict the inflow of Europeans." Mr. Gompers charges that alien groups of considerable strength oposing re strictive legislation are acting "not as Americans, but are aliens, loyal only to the country of their birth," and that "the plain truth is that the attitude of a large number of racial groups in the United States toward restrictive immi gration furnishes the best and most com plete reason for the absolute necessity of restrictive legislation." Commander says the melting pot has become impotent, and that in order to keep America a true democracy, immi gration should be suspended for what ever period may be necessary, "until we provide machinery to teach immigrants how to live up to American standards of living, to our ideals and our tradi tions." Reviewing the period since the armis tice, Commander Quinn asserts that "it did not take long for the Legion to dis cover that the new group of immigrants vjas to a large extent a menace to Amer ican institutions," and that "accustomed to the low European standard of living, these foreigners in their anxiety to have work, accept wages below the wage needed by American working man to sustain himself and family." He con tinues : . "American institutions are established upon the marginal wage that American labor requires to maintain itself as a self-respecting unit of American society. An influx of cheap labor was bound to undermine this standard of living. If the 4,500,000, Americans who were in the military service of a great majority were men who worked with their hands for a living. This tidal flow of unrestricted immigration threatened to prevent their successful reintroduction into civil life. This, condition, along with others, caused the American Legion to devote con siderable thought to the immigration problem, then as now one of the most important facing the nation. Appealing for action on the part of organized labor, President Gompers de clares that a powerful lobby is busy day and night in Washington and ta the organizations of foreign born throughout the country are being induced to adopt resolutions and send petitions to Con gress. "Every trade union in America ought to register its support of the Johnson bill " Mr. Gompers says. "Every trade union ought to a -pt rtf.iutions which should be forwarded to the Congressman from the district, the Senators from the State and the President of the American Federation of Labor. "This action should be taken immedi ately. Let Congress know where the wage earners of America stand. The immigration issue is an American issue, and it must be settled as an American issue. Let American wage earners voice their demands. Do it immediately, or it may be too late. "Unless the Immigration law is passed before June 30, the American doors will be thrown wide open to hordes of immi grants from all countries. "America must not be overwhelmed. Every effort to enact immigration legis lation must " expect to meet a number of hostile forces, and in particular, two hostile forces of considerable strength. "One of these is composed of corpora tion employers who desire to employ physical strength "broad backs' at the lowest possible wages, and who prefer a rapidly revolving labor supply at low wages to a regular supply of American wage earners at fair wages. The other is composed of racial groups in the United States who oppose all restrictive L. JOIN left open for an influx of their country- legislation because they want the doors men, regardless of the menace to the people of their adopted country. "It is no more possible to get alien groups to regard immigration as an American issue than it is to get a cer tain type of American employer so to regard it. Employers regard it as an employment iSsue, and they have no more regard for American standards, American institutions or American prin- ciples in connection with the employment of alien wage earners than they have in connection with the purchase of raw materials. "It must be said in fairness to em ployers, however, that there, is less hos tility to enactment of proper immigra tion legislation in this session of Con gress than ever before. Agreat many employers, formerly hostile to restrictive legislation, see the error of their way and have changed their postion entirely as a result of the war. "Not so with the racial groups. They constitute the most important factor in opposition to restrictive legislation in the present session of Congress. Resolu tions, memorials and protests by the score have come to members of Con gress and committees of Congress from racial groups clamoring against pro tective restrictive legislation. "Clearly, these groups are acting not as Americans, but as aliens, loyal only to the country of their birth They have found the goose that lays the golden egg, and they ardently hope the goose will live up to its reputation for fool ishness at least until all of their rela tives, friends and neighbors can get here to share in their good luck. "The plain truth is that the attitude of a large number of racial groups in the United States toward restrictive leg islation furnishes the best and most com plet reason for the absolute necessity for restrictive legislation- "It appears to be the assumption of foreign-born groups in the United States that the peoples of the world have a right to come to the United States at will and that the people ( c f the United States are imposing unfairly upon other peoples in placing any restriction upon those migratory tenienctes. They seem unable to comprehend the fact fhat the immigratin into the United States is a privilege which ,the United States has not only the power but the absolute right to confer or withold as will best serve the present and future safety of the cit izens of the United States. "There is a certain measure of pre sumption in the campaign being con ducted by non citizen alien groups in opposition to the enactment of restrictive legislation by Congress. Of course, the aliens so engaged do not regard it in that light, but it is nothing less, no matter what may be their opinion. "Tremendous efforts have been devoted the task of building up standards of liv ing and standards of life in general in the United . States, and it has now be come the generally accepted fact that these conditions are not only better in the United States than elsewhere, but that they remain so. Of course a coun try where such conditions obtain is cer tain to arouse in the peoples of other lands the desire to migrate. "But, if barriers were, not placed in the way of migration, the conditions which create the desire to migrate would soon be destroyed entirely, so that there f would be not only no benefit to anybody, but a general loss to the whole world. "Americans not only desire to main tain the standards which they have achieved, but "they are determined to im prove them. In addition to this Ameri cans generally are determined to main tain the general character which has been given to our institutions through the racial characteristics of those who have been the dominant force and the largest contributing factor from the very beginning. 700,000 Unionists Oppose Park Grab Central Trades and Labor Council Join Opponents of Art Centre New York, March 29. The sanks of those opposed to placing the Civic Mu sic and Art Centre in Central Park, as plan by the Hylan administration, were augumented by the Central Trades and Labor Council of Greater New York and. Vicinity. The Council's member ship is estimated at 700,000. . John P. Coughlin, Secretary of the council, has sent a letter to City Cham berlain Berolzheimer expressing the opposition of the the organization. He said the council was anxious to know whether the project was to be a "pri vate or a public enterprise." The labor men also asked the Chamberlain, who is a member of the Mayor's comm'ttee which selected the park site, to specify the benefit to be derived by the public from the 'construction of the centre.
