However, President Hu Jintao, who represented China 's government, claimed that China 's culture is being “invaded” by Western culture, which he sees them as “hostile forces”. Thus begins the censorship of Chinese mass media with the first step to push inappropriate TV shows out of prime time. Xu Fan, a professor from the Communications University of China, stated that those rules are meant to restrict crime programs and dramas that betrays moral and ethics.

Amy Tan, was one of the second group, and this helped her to write cultural values including American culture in her book. However, Amy Tan did not get rid of the Chinese culture, because she was mentally and physically attached to Chinese-American culture.
It was no anomaly to see the signs of “No Irish Need Apply,” because prior to the mass immigration of Asians, the Irish were the heart and anti immigration fervor. In modern America, immigration politics are reminiscent of previous American culture uprisings. As the globalized economy has evolved, an uneasiness in communities across America has developed. A misunderstanding of other cultures and and traditions has fostered a nationalistic attitude that has translated into a reactionary movement from the right.
