The 1965 immigration legislation was based primarily on a policy suggested by President John Kennedy in his short book, A Nation of Immigrants. After his death, legislation was ramrodded through Congress by Senators Edward Kennedy and Robert Kennedy. A review of the congressional action is fascinating: those wanting immigration opened-up lied their way to victory, claiming the legislation would bring insignificant change. Those who opposed the legislation and correctly predicted its horrific impact on America's future were, of course, branded racists. Ordinary American citizens weren't even aware of what was happening.
