Europeans Migrate to The U.S.A
German and Scandinavian Immigration
Then there is the Germans. Similar to the Swedes, Germans want to start farms on cheap American soil. They are making the journey to Wisconsin and Minnesota because it has similar soil to theirs in Germany. Germans are also starting to use their skills from Germany and applying it in America. We are seeing a rise in Germany bakers, butchers, carpenters, printers, shoemakers, and tailors. The Germans are a strong working force that are helping the United States grow.
Another huge event that recently happened in Ireland was know as the Irish Potato Famine. This event is going on right now and is killing many. Before the famine, potatoes where Ireland main source of food. When something infected the potatoes and made them deadly to eat the country started suffering. About 1 million people have already died from the famine and there are probably going to be more. Many people are fleeing Ireland in hopes of finding America with a stable amount of food.
On the down side the Irish are arriving the United states with little to no money. They are now working back breaking work in order to make a living. Politicians are seeing the problems are just recently stated creating facilities to help new immigrants get started in the United states.
Cities after immigration
American Opposition to the Immigration
These issues are causing many people to become prejudice towards the immigrants. Prejudice is when you have an unfavorable opinion of something, even though you have little knowledge of the topic. This is making it difficult for many immigrants to live their day-to-day lives. Some employers will not even employ people if they are not native-born American.
