"'A 3 percent remedy' for our immigration ills, real or fancied, will restrict the admission of aliens from May of this year to June, 1922, to 3 percent of the total of each nationality in this country when the Federal census was taken in 1910.

Quoting an uncredited journalist from THE BALTIMORE SUN, the article pointed out that the bill had strong backing:
