Immigration And Nationality Act, 1952

   Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act was passed over President Harry S. Truman’s veto on 27 June 1952. The act was introduced by Senator Pat McCarran, a Democrat from Nevada, and Francis Walter, a Democrat from Pennsylvania. While it lifted the blanket exclusion on the immigration and naturalization of Asians, it expanded the quota system introduced in the 1920s and included clauses allowing the deportation or prevention of entry of any aliens linked to subversive organizations. In the climate of Mc- Carthyism, that meant communist or similar groups. INCHON. Inchon was the port in North Korea where during the Korean War on 15 September 1950 General Douglas MacArthur made a daring amphibious landing with more than 70,000 troops more than 150 miles behind the North Korean army’s lines. The attack was so successful that North Korean supply lines were cut and their strength halved. United Nations forces were then able to push back the North Koreans, only to be halted by the entry of communist China in November.
