Congressman Patrick J. Hillings (Republican) of California's 25th District returned here October 7, 1953, with recommendations he will propose to Congress regarding immigration and refugee problems. He spent two months on the aerial survey. Hillings told newsmen at the International Airport that he would propose a bill in Congress to make it easier for officials of Red satellite countries to defect and come to the United States. "We should adopt some sort of program which will encourage more defection by officials behind the iron curtain in order that we can learn more about Communist intentions," he said.
