The Immigration struggle in America
In “Guarding the Golden Door,” Roger Daniels [introduces readers] the complicated [history of] the rising conflicts in effect of the [immigration policy in the United States] by starting with the Chinese Exclusion Act since 1882 to 2002 (along with discussing the aftermath incident on 9/11). In the book there were controversial fears and arguments judging the immigrants based on their religion, race or ethnicity, commenting on how these groups were too different, and therefore cannot readjust into the American culture. Primarily, the U.S. immigration policy’s goal was to hinder it from happening, while ironically enable just the opposite. Almost all of the United States immigration policy has been created by individuals who failed to take the set-up of the plans they urgently tried to create, and who have created circularize door policies only to end up closing them. [Before] the year of , the U.S. has not yet to establish an [immigration policy] meaning anybody [who got] there could [stay] as they please. However, [Americans] who had previously been [living] there had constantly [felt] hesitant against the [new arrivals]; even though they accepted [the immigrants] for providing low-priced [and] eager labor, [they] still remained skeptical of the diverse groups to gain the capability to conform. Because of their inborn inferiority or former cultural personality, migrant groups are incapable of self-government and are viewed as a threat to the American political institutions. It is important for native-born Americans to never be quick to criticize foreigners and learn to share their happiness, life, land, knowledge, and etc. in regards to their culture because it is a way of showing what a true human being you are. The American government shouldn't accuse non-Americans/whites by their skin color but by their actions (Mead 1).
