Nativism Booming In The US!!

Nativism has returned to the US due to a rapid growth of immigration during the 1920s! In fact the US has enacted three new Immigration acts- the Emergency Quota Act of 1921 limiting the amount of Immigrants allowed to come into the US, the Asian Exclusion Act of 1924 banning Asian Laborers from coming to the US, and the National Origins Act banning immigrants from South America and Europe from coming to the US.

The Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist group, has also emerged.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I can not believe they have imposed the Prohibition Act. Banning all alcohol in the whole country? So dumb!! Our own government officials who enacted this don't even follow it, so why should we? Also what about all the taxes and trade business we are losing? Not to mention it takes almost 4,000 members of one specific group just to enforce it! I want this repealed!!

Political Cartoon

This political cartoon dresses the problem of nativism. The artist thinks its unfair of us to keep immigrants out, when we have so many opportunities. Many people in this time period probably disagree with this artist. The cartoon is very persuasive because it makes you realize that if you're able to, you should help others.
