Immigration and the Legacy of Harry S. Truman (The Truman Legacy Series, Volume 6)

Though President Truman generally has not been given credit for immigration policy, this collection of essays reveals his considerable contributions as an "immigration president." Truman was the first president to propose eliminating all racial and ethnic bars to immigration, he pioneered refugee admissions, and his commission on immigration set out reforms that became central to the epochal Immigration Act of 1965. Softcover, 224 pages.
