Perkins, Frances, 1880-1965
The formal charge for the impeachment of Frances Perkins, along with two other Labor Department employees, was made by Mr. Thomas of New Jersey, on grounds that they “have failed, neglected, and refused to enforce the … immigration laws of the United States; and have conspired together to violate the immigration laws of the United States; and have defrauded the United States by coddling and protecting from deportation certain aliens illegally within the United States in violation of the statues in such cases made and provided.” First and foremost in the charge is the case of Harry Bridges, here accused of being a member of the Communist Party with intent to overthrow the Government of the United States. This pamphlet contains Perkins’s marginal notes and underlining throughout.
