The Truman Legacy Series, Vol. 6
These essays show President Harry S. Truman made considerable contributions as an “immigration president,” though he generally has not been given credit for immigration policy. Truman pioneered refugee admissions, was the first president to propose eliminating all racial/ethnic bars in immigration, and his commission on immigration set out reforms which became central to the epochal Immigration Act of 1965.
