Nativism is the political position of demanding a favored status for certain established inhabitants of a nation as compared to claims of newcomers or immigrants.
The Emergency Quota Act was followed with the Immigration Act of 1924. This law reduced the number of immigrants able to arrive.
The National Origins Act of 1924 reduces the number of immigrants entering the U.S. each year to 165,000.
The U.S. Border Patrol was created in 1924 as well.
