20th Century
As you all remember my theme for this blog is immigration, this is my last blog and my teacher has asked us too write about the 20th century. So I'm going to talk about immigration in the 20th century, many immigrants suffered in this period of time because of the Immigration Act and Asiatic Barred Zone Act. Many Europeans came to the United States for a better future one of them were the Italians. Italian immigrants increased in the 20 century according to the book "Immigrating to the USA," more than 2 million Italians immigrated between 1900 and 1930. Another thing this article talks about is also Immigration Act of 1924, it placed restrictions on immigrants from other countries, specifically war-torn Europe and Asia. The passing of the Immigration Act directly affected immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe.The Asiatic Barred Zone Act affected Indian Americans they lived under new restrictions, as a court case in 1922, the United States vs. Bhagat Singh Thind, took away existing Indian Americans of their citizenship. Causing the Indian population quickly to decrease in America.
