Something to be thankful to Ted Kennedy for

Ending the Immigration Act of 1924, which prohibited almost all immigration by Italians, Poles, and other Southern and Eastern Europeans while totally prohibited Asians from coming to this country. Critics of the repealing of it aren't keen to point out that pro-German eugenicist policies were behind the act itself, with Madison Grant being one of the inspirations for it.
