... not going to be "dragged" into another war by the British. The Depression had bred increased xenophobia and anti-Semitism, and with upward of 30% unemployment in some industrial areas1, many Americans wanted to see immigration halted completely.

The question then became; what ... the conference was the creation of the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees (IGCR), which was to be a voluntary organization, totally dependent on private funding.
