(Newser) – Seth Meyers will take his late-night act to prime time as the next host of the Emmy Awards. NBC, home to Meyers in his long stint on Saturday Night Live and his new late-night talk show, announced last night that he'll host the 66th edition of the Emmys set to air on the network Aug. 25. It will be telecast live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The 40-year-old Meyers, himself an Emmy winner, debuted as host of Late Night With Seth Meyers in February, taking over the slot of Jimmy Fallon, who moved on to the Tonight Show.

1965 immigration act:. In order to convince the American people of the legislation's merits, its proponents assured that passage would not influence America's culture significantly. President Johnson called the bill "not a revolutionary bill. It does not affect the lives of millions",[4] while Secretary of State Dean Rusk estimated only a few thousand Indian immigrants over the next five years, and other politicians, including Senator Ted Kennedy, hastened to reassure the populace that the demographic mix would not be affected; these assertions would later prove grossly inaccurate.[5]. lets use this term,,,"criminal aliens", not "illegal aliens"
