Included are: (1) a report of issues considered in formulating the Commission's recommendations; (2) how the Commission dealt with deportation and exclusion policy; (3) a personal view of the Commission's operations and shortcomings; (4) criticism of the Commission report as lacking data-based analysis and understanding of the determinants of migration to the United States; (5) critiques of recommended immigration selection and restriction procedures; and (6) analyses of the implications of the proposed changes for Federal agencies, civil liberties exponents, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, organized labor, local government, the private sector, and others.
