YOu should've used this one-brief and right to the core of it-<quoted text>
"Who's immigration policy was in effect then"? That would be the leftist nuts that have had a stranglehold on the Federal gvt for the last 20 years or so.

Godfather of the immigration mess - Edward Kennedy
National Review ^| Nov 7, 1994 | Dan Stein
SENATOR Edward Kennedy has been the godfather of America's immigration policy since the mid 1960s. No other figure in American politics bears as much responsibility as he for the current pathetic state of U.S. immigration affairs.
Which basically consisted of-
The Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, also known as the Hart-Celler Act, abolished an earlier quota system based on national origin and established a new immigration policy based on reuniting immigrant families and attracting skilled labor to the United States. Over the next four decades, the policies put into effect in 1965 would greatly change the demographic makeup of the American population, as immigrants entering the United States under the new legislation came increasingly from countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, as opposed to Europe.
