Nativism is Rising!

Welcome to America, Now speak English

Nativism is the policy of protecting the interests of native inhabitants against those of immigrants. And its rising now because of immigrants. Laws that were passed because of Nativism are The Emergency Quota Law of 1921 which limits the number of immigrants entering the U.S another law is Married Women's Act which revokes the citizenship of women who married foreigners and the National Origins Act reduces the number of immigrants entering the U.S. Now the Ku Klux Klan are moving in many states and are dominating politics. They placed enough Klansmen in positions of power to control the state government.

More and more people are getting scared thanks to the cartoonist's persuasive techniques but what could really frighten people is if he uses more exaggeration
