Limiting Freedom in America is Wrong America is the symbol of freedom and the land of opportunity; however, this not achieved by limiting diversity to one specific ethnicity. America is the country that it is today as a result of immigrants and the people throughout history who have kept an open mind to the idea of a “tossed salad” society. Throughout history America has been a nation inhabited by immigrants.
The United States experienced an influx of immigrants between the 1890’s to the 1920’s. Immigrants entered the United States from Eastern Europe and Southern Europe. From these demographic shifts we can also see that there were changed in the United States attitudes towards recent immigrants. These attitudes are grounded in racialized notions of foreign peoples and African Americans. Nativist notions are set in ideas of whiteness and different factors make Eastern Europe and Southern Europe immigrants not quite white.
Immigration Immigration has always been a hot topic during a presidential election year, and this year is no different. Legal immigrants are often celebrated, while unauthorized immigrants are often blamed for many things that are wrong with the country. Still, millions of immigrants from around the world come to the U.S. each year seeking to take advantage of everything this country has to offer. Historical Immigration Trends The Migration Policy Institute has researched U.S. immigration trends of foreign-born people with no U.S. citizenship at birth dating back to 1850.
The immigrant topic has had a long back and forth history with the United States. Since the beginning of this issue the next generation has adopted the common fear of outsiders that don’t look and sound like others around them. From 1900 to 1920, nearly 24 million immigrants arrived during what is known as the “Great Wave”. The outbreak of World War I reduced immigration from Europe, but mass immigration resumed upon the war 's conclusion, and Congress responded with a new immigration policy: the national-origins quota system passed in 1921 and revised in 1924(PEGLER-GORDON, ANNA).
Immigration has always been a major part of American history. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people travel to the United States in search of a better life. Of the 1.49 million immigrants who traveled to the United States in 2016, 150,400 immigrants were from Mexico. There have also been many people from Mexico who have immigrated illegally to America, with 5.6 million Mexican unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. in 2015 and 2016. The large scale of immigration, both legal and illegal, has brought up issues such as national security and the U.S. economy.
The United States is a country formed by immigrants from different regions. Currently, there are more than 11.5 million immigrants, both illegal and legal, living in the US. Throughout U.S. history, immigrants have settled the country, contributed to America’s intellectual environment, vibrant culture, national defense, and economic productivity, and so much more.
Reasons for immigration and how it is tied into the history of the USA The first recorded type of large immigration we saw to the American continent was in the colonial period, which started in the 1600s. There are four main phases of immigration to the USA, each of these brought distinct national groups, ethnicities and races to America. Immigration has been a major source of large population growth spurts and cultural changes in the USA. The main reasons for migration are poverty, war, oppression (political as well as religious) and economic reasons.
Multilingual education in the United States goes back further than most would think. Growing up I was only taught English, until the fourth and fifth grade when we were allowed to take french classes if our grades were high enough. It is crazy to think that I can still remember some french. Learning another language has more advantages than disadvantages. Wouldn't you want to be able to travel the world one day, and actually be able to communicate with people that speak languages other than English.
The main reason for immigration has remained economic opportunity, the appeal of better land or a better job. Before 1920, about 30 percent of all immigrants to the United States later returned to their native country. Some immigrants intend to stay in a new country temporarily and then go back home. But others go back because they find adjusting to a new society too difficult. (Source: The World Book Encyclopedia, Volume 10, Page 82).
