Excerpt from Oriental Exclusion: The Effect of American Immigration Laws, Regulations and Judicial Decisions Upon the Chinese and Japanese on the American Pacific Coast; Preliminary Report Prepared for the July, 1927, Conference of the Institute of Pacific Relations in Honolulu

This study is one of a series of monographs prepared in connection with the Conference of the Institute of Pacific Relations at Honolulu in July 1927. These monographs are presented to the Institute on behalf of the American Group attending the Conference; but the presentation of this material for consideration in the program does not imply either that the Institute itself or that the American Group assumes responsibility for statements of fact or opinion contained in the texts. These remain as much the personal expression of the authors as would be the case had the contribution been communicated orally.

The Research Committee, which has charge of the editorial work of the American Group, has necessarily limited itself to the question of the pertinence of the subject matter to the discussions of the Institute.

At the 1925 Conference of the Institute, it was clear that the American Immigration Laws and their administration were regarded as a cause of friction and misunderstanding, but the Conference found itself without any substantial factual basis for its discussions, and copies of the Immigration Laws of the Pacific countries were not available. To facilitate discussion of these matters at the 1927 Conference, the American Group in making available copies of the Immigration Laws of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Japan and the United States. In addition, it asked Professor R. D. McKenzie of the University of Washington to undertake a study of the actual operation and effect of the American Immigration Laws, Regulations and Judicial Decisions upon Chinese and Japanese, particularly on the American Pacific Coast.
