Nativism

Nativism can be defined as a policy that protects the interests of native-born or established inhabitants against those of immigrants. Three laws were passed during this time as a result of Nativism. The three laws were The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, The Immigration Act of 1924, and The National Origins Act. This later on developed the United States border patrol services.

Politics

Warren G. Harding

Harding was the 29th President of the United States of America. He served from March 4th, 1921 until his death August 2nd, 1923. His presidency was rocked by scandal and criminal activity. He was never involved in anything but his cabinet members and other government officials were very shady to say the least. As president he favored pro-business policies and limited immigration.

After his death in 1923, the Teapot Dome Scandal and other instances of corruption showed up and damaged his reputation.
