U.S. Immigration Law: How It Evolved
Manning, Robert D.; Wirken, Melanie J.
La Luz, 7, 2, 38-9, Feb 78
Originally, Congress approved only "qualitative" restrictions on immigration ensuring the good health and character of aliens entering the country.

Past and present immigration laws are summarized. (NQ)
