"A Quota For India Too"

An article written April 1944 by Anup Singh, Director of Research of the India League of America, regarding the history of citizenship of Indians in the US. Singh states that because the Chinese were allowed a quota for citizenship, Indians should also be allowed a naturalization quota. Singh notes that Indians were previously allowed citizenship up until 1923. Also attached is a February 10, 1944 New York Times article entitled, “In Justice to India”. The writer supports the naturalization of Indians in the United States. These article were enclosed along with a form letter to various Unions asking for support of Bills H.R. 4415, H.R. 4479, and S.1595, legislation to allow U.S. naturalization of Indian nationals (see https://www.saada.org/item/20151005-4496).
