American Committee on Italian Migration. Chicago Chapter (Ill.)

Hide Profile

The American Committee on Italian Migration (ACIM), Chicago Chapter (Illinois) resulted from a meeting called by the National Catholic Resettlement Council in 1951. Suggestion for the organization came from His Eminence Cardinal Stritch Archbishop of Chicago; it was headed by Judge Juvenal Marchisio. The ACIM was formed officially in 1952 in New York City; the Chicago Chapter, composed of priests and laymen, was also formed in 1952. The purposes of the ACIM were to: become familiar with the problem of overpopulation in Italy; publicize the need for Italian migration; cooperate with other groups regarding the overpopulation problem; promote legislation permitting Italians to enter the United States; work for revision of the McCarran Act; cooperate with the Bishop's Resettlement Council; raise funds for Italian resettlement; and publish a monthly bulletin. After passage of the 1965 Immigration Act, goals were reformulated.
