Edward Bellamy was born on March 26, A Tale Of The Christ. Bellamy takes the Rip Van Winkle idea and cranks it up a few notches. Our hero Julian goes to sleep in Boston one night in and wakes up in a most unusual place:
The rising tide of nativism—the fear of foreigners—had deep roots in anti-Catholicism and a fear of foreign radicals. These beliefs and the link to immigration restriction had widespread support among many well-educated elites. The Immigration Restriction League, founded by young Harvard-educated Boston Brahmins inadvocated a literacy test to slow the tide of immigration Looking backward Cities, where most immigrants settled, were derided and feared as places filled with dangerous people and radical ideas Hawley These sentiments were often formulated by intellectuals, but they resonated with many Looking backward Americans who were reared in rather parochial and homogenous rural and small town environments.
While some reformers, such as Jane Addams, went to work to alleviate the many problems of urban slums, others such as Henry Adams, the descendant of two American presidents and a noted man of letters, expressed virulent nativism and anti-Semitism Baltzell The Chinese Exclusion Act of was the first step toward a closed society.
From the s to the s, a diverse set of groups, ranging from the old line New England elites to the Progressive Movement in the Midwest and to the Ku Klux Klan led a campaign to halt immigration from undesirable immigrants from Europe Higham ; Jones In the early decades of the 20th century the nascent pseudo-science of Eugenics was used to support claims of the inferiority of the new immigrants relative to old stock Americans.
Passing the national origins quotas in the early s was intended to exclude everyone from Asia and Africa and to sharply lower the number of arrivals from Southern and Eastern Europe.
The period from towhen a highly restrictive immigration policy was in place, was exceptional in American history. For those who were reared in this era, it might seem that the high levels of immigration experienced during the last three decades of the 20th century are unusual.
However, high levels of immigration characterized most of the 18th and 19th centuries as well as the first two decades of the 20th. The impact of the Amendments to the Immigration and Nationality Act, also known as the Hart-Cellar Act, was a surprise to policy makers and many experts.
The primary intent of the Act was to repeal the national origin quotas enacted in the s, which were considered discriminatory by the children and grandchildren of Southern and Eastern European immigrants.
The advocates of reform in the s were not pushing for a major new wave of immigration. Their expectation was that there would be a small increase of arrivals from Italy, Greece, and a few other European countries as families that were divided by the immigration restrictions of the s were allowed to be reunited, but that no long-term increase would result Reimers The new criteria for admission under the Act were family reunification and scarce occupational skills Keely The new preference system allowed highly skilled professionals, primarily doctors, nurses, and engineers from Asian countries, to immigrate and eventually to sponsor their families.
About the same time, and largely independently of the Immigration Act, immigration from Latin America began to rise. Legal and undocumented migration from Mexico surged after a temporary farm worker program known as the Bracero Program was shut down in Massey, Durand, and Malone Beginning in the s, there were several waves of Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Hmong refugees following the collapse of American-supported regimes in Southeast Asia.
Each of these streams of immigration as well as refugee inflows has spawned secondary waves of immigration as family members followed.
Bythere were over 30 million foreign-born persons in the United States, of whom almost one third arrived in the prior decade.While backwards compatibility has been available in some shape or form as far back as the Atari , it wasn't a feature gamers expected to find on their consoles; it was a bonus when it appeared but hardly mandatory.
The PlayStation 2 changed that by being fully compatible with the entire PlayStation library barring a handful of games. We saw this trend continue with the Wii and, to an. The hostility of old line Americans to “foreigners” accelerated in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as racial ideology and anti-Semitism also became part of American consciousness.
