Title: Restrictions on Immigration and Modern-Day Immigration


1
Restrictions on Immigration and Modern-Day
Immigration
  • You already know about the Chinese Exclusion
    Act!!!

2
Why Restrict Immigration?
  • Poor Economy in US
  • War
  • Racism
  • Overpopulation
  • All these issues lead to official restrictions
    on US Immigration

3
Limiting Immigration key terms
  • How do you limit the amount of immigrants
    coming into a country?
  • Exclusions preventing a group from immigrating
  • Quotas a limit placed on the number allowed to
    immigrate

4
Chinese Exclusion Act
  • Racism and the loss of jobs fuels Anti-Chinese
    sentiment in California.
  • In response to California labor unions, the U.S.
    government bans all Chinese laborers from
    entering the country in 1892!
  • This and other Chinese restriction laws remain in
    effect until 1965!

5
Most notably
  • The Gentlemans Agreement
  • In California, Asian students attended segregated
    schools.
  • Japan protests, so
  • T. Roosevelt made a compromise with Japanese
    officials.

According to the Gentlemans Agreement America
promised not to segregate Japanese students and
Japan promised not to send Japanese workers to
America
6
Example of a Quota
  • Immigration Act of 1924 limited the number of
    immigrants from each country.
  • Restricted immigration to 2 of each individual
    countrys total based on the 1890 US Census.
  • IE. There were 200,000 Italian immigrants in the
    US in 1890. Only 4,000 Italians were allowed
    entry each year.

7
Do These Quotas and Exclusions Apply to Other
Groups?
  • Hmmmmmmmmm . . .

8
What about Mexico?
  • Starting in 1902 immigration from Mexico was
    PROMOTED for jobs in the farming and mining
    industries of the Southwest
  • how does that differ from today?
