A Journey Through The Golden Gates Of Promise - 2,246 words
A Journey Though the Golden Gates of Promise Great controversy exists over the true promises of the Golden Gates in the United States. Discrimination occurs with different ethnic groups, but for those immigrants permitted into the country, the opportunities are excellent. The laws and practices established to control immigration into the United States limit the amount of poverty that can be present in the country. Without these important practices and laws created by the United States Congress, cheap labor would overpower American citizen labor and lead the country to an economic and social catastrophe. Although the United States is often criticized for its establishment of immigration laws ...

Immigration Into America - 1,143 words
In the eyes of the early American colonists and the founders of the Constitution, the United States was to represent the ideals of acceptance and tolerance to those of all walks of life. When the immigration rush began in the mid-1800s, America proved to be everything but that. The millions of immigrants would soon realize the meaning of hardship and rejection as newcomers, as they attempted to assimilate into American culture. For countless immigrants, the struggle to arrive in America was rivaled only by the struggle to gain acceptance among the existing American population. It has been said that immigration is as old as America itself. Immigration traces back as far as the 1500s when the ...

Indians In The Us - 1,613 words
A large number of Indians came to the US in the 1910s abd 1920s, not just from India, but from Hong Kong and other areas in Asia as well. Some Indians came as students to universities such as the University of California at Berkeley. It was during this period that the British and the US government started cooperating to limit Indian immigration. This policy was tested when the British informed the US authorities that a ship called the "Komagatu Maru" was headed to the US from Hong Kong with about 375 Indians. When the Maru arrived at Angel Island (the port of entry which holds terrible memories for Asian immigrants) the AEL ( Asian Exclusion Leage ) had organized a huge mob to prevent the of ...

Changes And Events Leading To The Immigration Act Of 1924 - 1,303 words
Changes and Events leading to the Immigration Act of 1924 Although there are many different and complex reasons to why the Immigration Act of 1924 was passed I will focus on the conception of eugenics that was present before this act and also the general ill- sentiment towards immigrants and racism leading up to the passing of this act. The implications of the National Origins Act (Immigration Act) will also be discussed as they pertained particularly to Asians and southeastern Europeans. The major triumph of the advocates of eugenics was the Immigration Act of 1924. Eugenics was a big reason why Asians and these southeastern Europeans werent wanted or allowed into the country.

Racism - 1,531 words
It is very easy to imagine a world that does not involve race. Humans would work together to make advances in medicine, technology, and education. Asides from imagining, hoping, and dreaming the question comes to mind; is it possible? From the day that you learn that Columbus discovered a New World a cloud settles in over the rays of hope and imagination. In the educational system you are molded to believe that white is right and everyone and everything not white is wrong. Fortunately for some, you begin to learn that that is the furthest thing from the truth. Experience dictates who you are and how you think. If you are raised under the impressions that appearing different equals being diff ...

Racism The Question Of Japanese Internment During World War Two - 2,253 words
Racism: The Question of Japanese Internment During World War Two During World War Two approximately one hundred and ten thousand Japanese, citizens and aliens, were evacuated, interned and either relocated or imprisoned in desolate camps on the basis of their loyalty to the United States. This was justified as a military necessity because the Japanese were thought to be a threat to the security of the west coast of the United States. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, age-old stereotypes that had their origin in the pioneer age of the old west were reactivated and turned against the Japanese as they had been used against the Chinese in years previous. These exclusionist attitudes have their ...

Immigration - 637 words
are many political, social, and economic reasons why restrictions should be put on immigration. The United States Government and the welfare of its citizens are chaotic enough, without having to deal with the influx of thousands of new immigrants each year.

The unemployment rate has been on a steady decline, which has started to level off in the past few years. With the addition of all these immigrants, the ...
