Letter from Edward James Livernash to Theodore Roosevelt
Edward James Livernash writes President Roosevelt on behalf of the Chinese Exclusion Commission of California to ask the president's support for a national exclusion policy against Chinese immigrants. Several Pacific states have exclusion laws on their books and Livernash wants a nation-wide exclusion law. He is concerned over a change to the bill by Senator Platt. Organized labor supports the bill, as does the Bureau of Immigration.
