Traveling to Washington, DC soon? Check out the Refugee Act of 1980 on display!
Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2016
Wow! I didn’t know, but since I’ll be in DC next week I might just have to stop at the National Archives for this important display.
I sure hope it is still there since it opened last November (but could find no information when the display would close). Got to give them credit, they are working hard on their PR campaign!
By the way, you might want to have a look at what Senator Ted Kennedy had to say about his baby—the bill that was ultimately signed into law by Jimmy Carter, here.
Kennedy wasn’t alone, here are the other chief Senate sponsors of the bill:
Sen Biden, Joseph R., Jr. [DE] –
Sen Boschwitz, Rudy [MN] –
Sen Hatfield, Mark O. [OR] –
Sen Javits, Jacob K. [NY] –
Sen Levin, Carl [MI] –
Sen McGovern, George [SD] –
Sen Moynihan, Daniel Patrick [NY] –
Sen Pell, Claiborne [RI] –
Sen Randolph, Jennings [WV] –
Sen Ribicoff, Abraham A. [CT] –
Sen Riegle, Donald W., Jr. [MI] –
Sen Sarbanes, Paul S. [MD] –
Sen Tsongas, Paul E. [MA] –
Sen Williams, Harrison A., Jr. [NJ]
I wrote about the law here in 2013.
If you plan to visit, call the archives first to be sure the law, that is changing your cities and towns, is still being showcased!
