A New York Attorney General.

Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965

Together with Senators Emanuel Celler and Edward Kennedy, Senator Javits played a prominent role in the Senate hearings on the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965[1] that did away with the "national origins quota" system. The old quota system, in place since the 1920s, determined who could immigrate to the U.S. based on ethnicity, with a heavy tilt toward Western Europeans. Only small allotments were granted to Eastern Europeans, Asians and Africans. Senator Javits conceded, that immigration from the Western Hemisphere under the new law "would be approximately the same as the level reached last year"—a modest 140,000 or thereabouts. Yet the total number of persons of Mexican origin in the U.S. went from 5 million in 1970, the first census after the act, to almost 34 million by 2015.[2]
