ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the book "A Constructive Immigration Policy," by Maurice R. Davie. The book summarizes the history of immigration legislation of the U.S. for the past forty years. It is due mainly to this conflict of class interests reflected in Congressional action that after a generation of experimentation, the country has not yet reached a constructive solution of the immigration problem. In view of the fact that the question of immigration legislation has, for the most part, been the subject of a great mass of propaganda, a concise statement of the social elements involved is highly in order. The brevity of Davie's statement should commend it to the busy man of affairs, and it is this type of reader who is most in need of unbiased information on the topic. There can be no quarrel with Davie's statement regarding the necessity of developing tests that will insure an immigrant class of high mental, physical and moral attainments. Neither is there any question as to the need of a more efficient administration of the law.
