The immigration laws in our country have been influenced by population growth and distribution, as well as economic and political conditions both in the United States and foreign nations. Such influences have caused significant variations in patterns of immigration throughout our nation's history. It is important for us to remember our distinguished immigrant heritage when commenting upon past immigration policy and projecting as to the future of our immigration laws.
