Americans initially favored neutrality, but events like the sinking of the Lusitania and the Zimmermann telegram provoked the U.S. to join the war in support of the Allies (Shi and Tindall 754-757). Less obvious factors, such as nationalism, imperialism, and business opportunity, also contributed to the war. The war ended in 1918 after immense bloodshed, but President Wilson failed to get the Treaty of Versailles ratified by the Senate (Shi and Tindall 773). As a result of the war, Europe was significantly weakened, harsh punishments were imposed on Germany that later led to WWII, and America emerged with a strong economy as a dominant world power (Shi and Tindall

In the novel “Out of this Furnace,” Bell suggests that most immigrants came to America seeking a better life, but faced the hard truth of inhuman labor (23). With the lack of education, Kracha couldn 't speak English, therefore, Kracha faced the lack of communication, also because the lack of education Bell suggests immigrants made no effort in practicing their freedom and sets Kracha as an example (66). But lack of education wasn’t the only thing that impeded immigrants to vote, in a discussion with Mike, Kracha makes a comparison between the emperors and the millionaires, “they run the country to suit themselves, and don 't think they 're going to let you interfere every few years with your miserable vote.” (67).In other words, Kracha voiced his opinion on the real results of the voting, Kracha insists that big millionaires and banks, pressure workers into voting for a certain runner, only to benefit
After the Civil War immigrants from Europe and Asia traveled to America in hopes of a better life, many were disappointed however, to find a life similar to the one they were trying to leave behind. The United States was said to be the “promised lands” or the country of freedom and success, and it was, mostly though, for those who were white and also men. Immigrants felt coming to America was right for them for many reasons, being that they were pushed to leave their countries for their own personal struggles and they were pulled to the U.S. with all of it’s talk of being the land of the free. During this time however, dark times were beginning to be made a little easier with recent innovations and technology that changed the lives of all people for the rest of time.
In the early 19th century, millions of immigrants from Europe had traveled to the United States to escape difficulties faced in their native lands such as poverty and religious persecution. Italian, German, Irish, and many other eastern European immigrants sought the prosperous and wealthy lifestyle advertised in the land of opportunity, the United States. However, after settling down they often faced the difficulties they had fled from as well as sentiments of prejudice and mistrust from the American people. Most immigrants were discriminated against due to their religious beliefs as well as their language barriers which fostered the beliefs that they were intellectually inferior to Americans. However, the American economy needed both skilled and unskilled workers and the migration of European immigrants to large cities allowed them to fill the growing number of factory jobs for unskilled workers.
Everyone have an opinion on this and many of them are probably very good opinions but I have seen new discussions rise from people and politicians after the new restriction and border security made by the Swedish and German government and let 's not forget about the terrorist attack in France. People do not want immigrant. We brits have slowly with the rest of the European nation turned more nationalistic towards immigration and yes, you must be correct that we cannot have more immigrants from the middle east into our nation,
Fixing immigration in America In America the problem of immigration is shrouded by hate, distrust, and anger from the multitudes of races involved. In the last few decades this issue has become wide spread and very divisive. For registered immigrants and people born in America the influx of people allows for a fear of job loss or change of cultural identity. For the issue of immigration, the solution for both illegal and legal, will be to incorporate them as American citizens as well as increasing border security to ensure that this privilege is not abused. This will aid the issue by quickly allowing partial to full citizenship for all immigrants, allowing the government to keep track of all people in the country, and to reduce the fear and
As the U.S. makes this transition, there are multiple obvious changes throughout the nation, such as a growth of our economy, a feeling of cultural superiority, and a strengthening of our naval forces. Why did America transform from isolationism to imperialism? For starters, the United States felt the need to spread its own culture and religion, Christianity. We viewed small countries as inferior and uncivilized because they did not have advanced technology like our own and the natives of the territories did not practice the Christian religion. This being said, America decided that we needed to take over these areas to improve them.
The environment was also changed by the introduction of new buildings in a different and new style to a typical Irish style. However, even with all these methods being put in place, attracting a sufficient number of settlers failed. “The English planter population were outnumbered, even though they controlled the new landscape they had created as a consequence of their power. Because of their insecurity - a common by-product of colonisation - they were ever watchful of a possible insurrection by the native Irish populace.” - (Historical Archaeology in Ireland - Charles E Orser, Jr., Colm J Donnelly, - 2008 Elsevier
This became a problem for the Americans and felt the need to remove the Indians from their land. Some Indians who did change their religion to Christianity still were not treated the same like the whites. Most Americans felt they were superior to the Indians due to their skin color. No matter what the Indians agreed too, the Americans were never completely fair to the
