Because Korea and China had far greater abundancies of resources, it was inevitable that Japan would have to interact with them in one way or another.

Although the Japanese invasion was ruthless in the eyes of the Koreans, the renowned Japanese pottery in Imari was actually heavily influenced by Korean labourers and artisans who were captured during this time. The influence of Neo-Confucianism also played a significant role in Japanese society, as it was adopted by Tokugawa Ieyasu and Fujiwara Seika to be the “cultural and educational policy of the new shogunate”.

The current immigration laws show a different illustration. The DREAM Act is a bill that would relieve those immigration laws and many of the undocumented alien minors in America.
