The Author describes and discusses some statutory changes he believes to be desirable in immigration legislation. He argues that immigration legislature does not occupy a very high priority among Congressional concerns. Moreover, those who favor statutory revisions are often reluctant to propose them, since past experience has demonstrated to them that stirring the legislative pot may produce a stew even less palatable than that now available. The suggestions he proposes include simplifying the statutory structure and creating discretionary authority to waive grounds for exclusion.
