There were inspectors that patrolled the west of California to stop the flow of illegal immigrants. These inspectors would patrol in search of illegal Chinese immigrants. The explanation for most of the Chinese immigrants was, they were looking to avoid Chinese exclusion laws. Several years later in 1915, Congress put a little more effort into stopping the illegal Chinese immigrants. They used another group of inspectors but instead called them “Mounted guards”.
I will use this in paper by saying everyone should be treated equal should be able to come to America to work and received a better life. Not everyone is coming to attack us or start another war . Trail of Tears Citation: Coates, Julia. Trail Of Tears / Julia Coates. n.p.:
The Chinese immigrants, however, were not the only ones to receive such hate and discrimination. This eventually spread towards Japanese and many other groups of Asian immigrants. However, instead of banning them altogether, the government just segregated them under the San Francisco Segregation order in the year of 1906. However, the Japanese government got involved and spoke out against this treatment. As a result, this would lead to the compromise of the Gentlemen’s agreement.
The Chinese Exclusion Act was placed restricting immigration of all Chinese laborers on the presumption that it endangered good order. This act placed requirements on Chinese stating they must carry identification cards now as well. In addition to this, those who were already living in the country were mandated to get an approval on coming back into the country if they left for any reason. With intentions on only lasting ten years, the act was passed again in 1992, extending it an addition ten years following that. Following the loss of so many Chinese workers and cheap labor, the Mexican Revolution brought an abundance of immigrants into the United States looking of work.
That was because they weren’t citizens and Americans didn’t know how to deal with them. The American government also created the foreign miners tax, making it harder for the immigrants to do much in the gold mines. Tools were taxed and
I am definitely against the Imperialism in China due to the fact that European are trying to take advantages of the Chinese. In fact, they also try to get free access to China resources but the only way to reward the Chinese is by silver. The European pay the Chinese by landing them the drug called opium and European demand the Chinese to surrender and obey them. The drug called opium was so awful that some Chinese were planning on stopping this drug from spreading. This drug was used as a tool by the colonial powers.
The idea of decolonization, or breaking away from the grips of imperialist nations and establishing one’s own national independence and ways of governing, is what sparked the revolutions and actions of many nations that were dominated by the Europeans or other imperialists. With that, the Chinese revolution occurred as a result of the increasing desire of Chinese communists to free China from colonialism. (754) Unfortunately, Chinese communists could not take any action because of Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist regime that expelled Communists out Chinese cities and caused them to go into hiding. (756) It was the year of 1934 when the communist party garnered back attention.
Although the decision on the Chae Chan Pang v. United States case was decided over 150 years ago, it still bares much relevance and similarity to President Donald Trump’s executive order, especially in the separation of powers. The Chae Chan Ping case came before the Supreme Court on the basis of an appeal of the 1888 Chinese labor restriction bill. Furthermore, the appellant was a national of China and had resided in San Francisco, California, under a work visa. Much to the surprise of the appellant, when arriving back in San Francisco, after visiting his homeland of China for 8 years, he was detained and told his entry into the country was unlawful. Rather shockingly, while the appellant was out of the country, the Government (The President)
In 1911, the bourgeois democratic revolution (the Xinhai Revolution) led by Sun Yat-sen abolished the feudal monarchy, and established the Republic of China, therefore starting the modern history of China. When Sun Yat-sen died Chiang Kai-shek took his place and built up the nationalist army. With his army he reclaimed Chinese land from other countries. Then the Nationalist Party split forming a Communist party who believed that the peasants should have a say in the government. Chiang Kai-shek disagreed with this and sided with the wealthy farmers.
Immigration to America had its benefits and downside. America was the place to go in the 19th century people all around the world immigrated to the US. The US needed rules and regulations on entering the country due to types of things that were happening in Document 2. The positives of immigrating to the US was too good to pass up.
The Weeks v United States case was the Supreme Court basis in determining to incorporate the Fourth Amendment into the Fourteenth Amendment due process clause and apply the exclusionary rule in state cases. In this essay, I am going to discuss the reason why the Supreme Court determine that the exclusionary rule should apply to the state police activity. Prior to the case of Weeks v United States, the state police activity “were not limited in their conduct by the Fourth Amendment” (Ingram p.81) and the exclusionary rule of Fourth Amendments illegal search and seizure only applies to federal law enforcement officers. Basically, it means that state law enforcement officials can illegally search and seized criminal activity evidence and court don’t prohibit the use of illegally obtained evidence in the trial court.
White Australian Policy The white Australian policy spanned from 1901 to 1973. The White Australian Policy was created to leave out/keep out non-white workers, and moreover, those who were not from a European background. The laws also restricted the lives of non-white Australians in the country. More and more Australians argued against this policy after World War Two.
The Exclusionary Rule: Enforcing the Fourth Amendment This section begins by explaining that in 1914, the court reexamined their previous ruling as to whether or not one could submit evidence to a court that had been illegally seized (Ingram, 2009). One specific case that the textbook references in relation to this is the case of Weeks v. the United States. In this particular case, the police had seized evidence that they had taken from the defendant’s residence without a proper search warrant. This evidence was then used against the defendant in court and he was convicted as a result.
Chinese Exclusion Act was passed in 1882. • I feel like there were many reasons for the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 has many factors that are contributing to why it was passed. The first being the quick population growth of Chinese immigrants from 1852 – 1880. In just 28 years, 81,000 Chinese immigrants had migrated to America after Chinese started arriving in 1848 when gold was discovered in California. In 1862, 20 years before the Chinese Exclusion Act was passed the Chinese formed the Consolidated Benevolent Association.
