Senators and Representatives reject President Harry Truman's suggestion that Congress pass special legislation to increase the number of European refugees admitted to the United States.

Representative John Rankin (D-MS) says:

"There are too many so-called refugees pouring into this country bringing with them communism, atheism, anarchy, and infidelity. ...

[We need] a program of deportation to send those undesirables back where they came from."
