Re: Visas from Europe.

Tammy
 

Have you searched your family surname in the Alien Case Files? The index, if I remember correctly, can be found on the familysearch.org website. If you find the names you are looking for, then copy the case number and submit a request fpr the file via the National Archives (NARA). You will find a wealth of information, including documents completed in Europe. 
Good luck with your search,
Tammy Weingarten

Re: KREMENCHUG POLTAVA

Max Preston
 

This is probably way too early for your purposes, but Alex Krakovsky has scanned some Kremenchug records from 1836-37 and put them on Wikipedia, as part of his ongoing project of scanned Ukrainian Jewish records: Kremenchug records

Good luck!


Re: Visas from Europe.

Ittai Hershman
 

Regarding the immigration to the US of Holocaust survivors sequestered in DP camps, there is a jaw-dropping statement by President Truman from June 1948 that provides important context: https://tinyurl.com/y34yg5rt (full URL: https://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/documents/statement-the-president-upon-signing-the-displaced-persons-act)

The bill discriminates in callous fashion against displaced persons of the Jewish faith. This brutal fact cannot be obscured by the maze of technicalities in the bill or by the protestations of some of its sponsors.

It wasn't until the "Displaced Persons {Immigration} Act of 1950" that this was mitigated. 

And while we're here, in December 1946, then Senator Revercomb (R-WV), chairman of the Senate’s immigration subcommittee, explained why Congress refused to allow Jewish Holocaust survivors into the US: “Many of those who seek entrance into this country have little concept of our form of government. Many of them come from lands where Communism had its first growth and dominates the political thought and philosophy of the people.”   

In October 2015, then Senator Sessions (R-AL) stated: "In seven years we'll have the highest percentage of Americans, non-native born, since the founding of the Republic. Some people think we've always had these numbers, and it's not so, it's very unusual, it's a radical change. When the numbers reached about this high in 1924, the president and congress changed the policy, and it slowed down immigration significantly, we then assimilated through 1965 and created really the solid middle class of America, with assimilated immigrants, and it was good for America. We passed a law that went far beyond what anybody realized in 1965, and we're on a path to surge far past what the situation was in 1924."  

As Santayana taught us: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
