[Editor's note: Professor Garis, in his 1927 book titled Immigration Restriction: A Study of the Opposition to and Regulation of Immigration into the United States, offered the following views regarding the immigration debate: "The most amazing thing about the immigration problem is the likeness of the arguments of one generation to the contentions of another. The points of view and prejudices of many sons are like unto their fathers'. Here, as in other enduring issues, there seems to be no new thing under the sun. How important, then, is the task of every citizen to think through the immigration question for himself, to free himself from bias, to seek only the truth! The great debates and changes in the immigration policy in the past illuminate the future; it is rank folly to attempt the solution of the problem in 1927 by century-old prejudices and to ignore the history of the attempts that have been made to deal fairly with ourselves and with the strangers knocking at our gates."]
