Jury selection did changed, now states could no longer exclude citizens from jury service based on their ethnicity or race. In conclusion Hernandez v. Texas was a good cause for Mexicans. Pedro Hernandez murdered Joe Espinoza and then he was refused a multi-racial jury of his peers, but the Texas court house denied his appeal. The lower courts reject the Courts ruling because the state of Texas argued that the fourteen Amendments covered only black and whites.
Border Patrol In 1875 congress started to pass laws to restrict immigrants from entering the united states. The Act of March third mostly people who were convicts or who were immoral woman were denied entry into the country. August 8, 1882 the immigration statute prevented people from entering the United states who lacked intelligence, mentally ill, or anyone that poses a threat to the public charge. The same year the first Chinese exclusion law was passed the same year.
An example of an opponent of imperialism is William Sumner, a sociology professor at Yale; he gave a speech to the university that criticized imperialism (Doc2). This speech was given in 1899, after the Spanish-American war and before the acquisition of the Philippines. He opposed imperialism, but he also believed in Social Darwinism. He was skeptical about Imperialism and the U.S. exporting its values by military force. Sumner was not a supporter of imperialism because he didn’t want American to become like Spain and other European imperialist nations.
He also removed some customs duties, but increased them in January of 1835. So while he did employ some of the changes that Texans wanted, he failed to cease the growing dissent Texas had for Mexico. One of the slightly more minor reasons the Texas Revolution happened was because of Mexico’s policy on immigration. The Law of April 6, 1830 made it illegal for anyone from the United States to immigrate to Texas. As you could imagine, this angered the already existing American immigrants, because that meant that they could not bring relatives along so that they could move to Texas as well.
The Voting Rights Act was passed into law on August 6, 1965. The law prohibited the use of poll taxes and literacy tests that prevented Southern Blacks from voting. It also gave the federal government authority to supervise how poll taxes are conducted within places with disfranchised African Americans. After the Civil War, regardless of the 15th amendment, which banned the states from denying the right to vote of male citizens based on their race or previous condition of servitude before the war, discrimination was still around, prevented African Americans from voting. Many voting rights activists were also being mistreated violently.
This act imposed numerical limitations on the number of immigrants allowed in the United States; This quota determined that any particular nationality was allowed to have 2% of their foreign-born individuals become a resident within the continental Americas as determined by the US census of 1890 with a minimum quota of any nationality being 100, but Asians were entirely excluded from immigrating or being factored in this act. The annual quota for any nationality from 1st July 1927 onwards, was ascertained to bear the same ratio to 150,000 as the number of inhabitants in America in 1920, with a minimum quota of any nationality being 100. With the first World War concerns over national security were raised which led the U.S. Congress to enact the immigration law in 1917, which was widely restrictive in nature. A series of legislative acts thereafter culminated into the 1924 Act, one of which was the legislation of a literacy test effective from 1917; This required any immigrant over the age of 16 years old to demonstrate comprehension and understanding in a particular language.
There were also impacts on small scales. For instance, the massive awards that resulted from filing of lawsuits against environmental and noise pollution caused by U.S forces in Japan. There were apologies from U.S officials for the crimes committed by U.S personnel in Japan. There was also, albeit as late as 2006, an agreement to move the MCAS Futenman from Okinawan to Guam. Despite the massive opposition, the treaty was not repealed because of its benefits for the Japan overall.

victory in the war” (Doctor Gayle Olson-Raymer). The Compromise “divided the remaining former Mexican holdings into two territories - New Mexico and Utah - where the question of slavery would be left to the people - popular sovereignty” (Doctor Gayle Olson-Raymer), and also brought California into the Union as a free state. With this addition of California, the balance of free and slave states was thrown off. There was uneven representation of the free and slave states because there were more free states. The compromise also brought the Fugitive Slave Act into play.
During the colonel period of America, it was property owners who held the right to vote. Even then, suffrage did not exist for the Catholic faith; Jews too, were banned in many colonies. After the Revolutionary War, colonist objected to Britain’s idea that members of Parliament were the only individuals that could cast votes. White males who owned property assumed this role. Some states then revoked the mandatory rule on property ownership and others allowed members of the military and militia to vote.
Japanese unskilled workers were also restricted. In 1885 a law was passed prohibiting contracted labor workers. Along with push + pull factors; Religious persecution, poverty, overcrowding, political and religious freedom, economic opportunities in the great plains and industrial jobs in the cities. Slums were a way to describe urban life in the northern cities. Wealth flowed during the 18-1900’s but only to the upper class of society.
Even though the Mexican encouraged the settlers to free the slaves, but the settlers refused(Source). The American settlers also took part in the mission system. Another law the American settlers broke was trying to convert the catholic nation into protestant. The Catholics did not have a good reputation because people were worried that the pope could lead to a dictation. Also,
Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 “was the first significant law restricting immigration into the United States.” Signed by President Chester A. Arthur, this act allowed a 10 year suspension on labor immigration from the Chinese. This act required that any non-laborers who wanted entry into the U.S. must have certification from the Chinese government in order to immigrate. They found that proving to be non-laborers was very difficult because this act excluded the Chinese who were skilled/unskilled laborers and those who were employed in mining.
The Wilmot Proviso was proposed during the Mexican-American War. David Wilmot (a Democrat) submitted the Wilmot Proviso. The Proviso meant that if the United States won they would not turn the Mexican people who were on the land into slaves. This passed through the House of Representatives (based on population), but not the Senate (equal number of reps from slave and free states). In order for the Wilmot Proviso to be passed it needed at least two thirds of the Senate, (did not happen).
