Michele Bachmann: Immigration Worked “Very Very Well” When We Had The Asian Exclusion Act

Michele Bachmann pines for the days when preferential treatment was given to European immigrants. At the Tea Party debate she opined that immigration worked “very very well” until the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.

The immigration system in the United States worked very, very well up until the mid-1960s when liberal members of Congress changed the immigration laws. What works is to have people come into the United States with a little bit of money in their pocket, legally, with sponsors so that if anything happens to them they don’t fall back on the taxpayers to take care of them.

With the pre-1965 policy, Europeans were given preferential treatment, while those of Asian and Central and South American descent were excluded.
