Rabbi Lance Sussman talked about Representative Emanuel Celler (D-NY), who served in the House from 1923 to 1973. Professor Sussman detailed Celler’s career-long fight against immigration restrictions in the United States culminating in the passage of the Hart-Celler Immigration Act of 1965.

The lecture was part of a two-day symposium hosted by the U.S. Capitol Historical Society titled “Congress and a Nation of Immigrants, 1790-1990: From the First Naturalization Act to the Simpson-Mazzoli Act.” This was held in the Russell Senate Office Building. close
