Marian Smith talked about the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 that President Lyndon Johnson’s signed into law at the foot of the Statue of Liberty on October 3, 1965. She said that the law, an amendment to the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, was intended to distribute visas more fairly according to family- or skills-based preference categories.

This program was part of a week-long series on the “Great Society,” which was a series of political initiatives President Lyndon Johnson took with the goals of promoting equality and ending poverty. 

C-SPAN Radio’s Nancy Calo read news headlines at the conclusion of the program. close
