To Family Reunification

Saying yes to the immigration act of 1965 could benefit families who are apart!

Despite the protestations of the 1965 act's sponsors, the sources of immigration have changed radically. The ending of the national origins quotas opened the doors to mass entry of people from Asia and Latin America (regions where people are far more likely to want to emigrate), and the law's emphasis on family reunification ensured that those through the door first would be able to bring in their relatives, freezing out potential immigrants from Europe and from other developing nations.
