President Eisenhower Wednesday urged Con gress to overhaul the nations im migration laws to wipe out in and ease the way for foreigners to come to this country as permanent residents each year Eisenhower said he thought this rise of about over the pres ent annual quota of immi grants is justified by the countrys past growth and current economic conditions He said too that it would be a recognition of our responsibilities of world In a special message Eisenhow er also told the lawmakers there is need to speed up the process of deporting unworthy who have been found to be crim inals of the lowest character traf ficking in murder narcotics and Proposal Planned He said Atty Gen Brownell will submit a proposal in this field lat er The Presidents message dealt to a great extent with recommenda tions for revision of the 1952 Mc CarronWalter Act which became law over the veto of former Presi dent Truman But it also made recommenda tions in these other principal fields 1 Grantingdiscretion to the at torney general to waive technicali ties in special cases where aliens seek entry to the United States At present Congress must pass in dividual bills in such cases and the President is required to act separately on each measure Eisenhower said granting the at torney general the requested dis cretion would substantially elimi nate the need for private legisla tive redress in this Eisenhower said the discretion ary powers should be limited to aliens with close relatives in this country to veterans and to func tionaries of religious organizations Not Requirement 2 Elimination of unnecessary restrictions and administrative pro visions of our immigration In that connection one recommen dation was for elimination of the requirement that all aliens visit ing this

administrative provision the President suggested be elimi nated is that requiring inspection of aliens coming to the mainland from Alaska and Hawaii Eisen hower said this is an expense to the government and an inconveni ence to travelers No Need He said there is no need either for applying admission standards to aliens simply passing through this country en route elsewhere For example he said South Amer icans going to and from Europe by air often pass through the United States As for the overall picture Eisen hower said this Throughout our history immi gration to this land has contrib uted greatly to the strength and character of our Over the years we have provided for such immigration because it has been to our own national interest that we do so It is no less to our national
