Nativism is the protection of the interests of the native-born or established inhabitants of an area of its' immigrants, and this policy made a return in the 1920's because of large amount of immigrants, particularly the Chinese, that migrated to the west coast taking jobs and land from the people who already lived there.The U.S. government took measures to restrict the flow of migrants through various anti-immigration laws such as: the emergency quota act of 1921, the immigration act of 1924,and National origin act of 1924. Additionally this immigration issue sparked the rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan, which sought to restrict immigration and persecute catholics.
