The US is the "great and unfailing refuge of the world's oppressed and persecuted peoples" in this single-topic edition of the American newsreel. European immigrants from Nazi-occupied Europe follow in the footsteps of earlier Irish and German migrants - who though they were "once strangers are now amongst the nation's leaders." This edition of March of Time also makes reference to the rising hysteria against "foreign-born people" and attempts to counter the disquiet.
