ABSTRACT
The article offers information concerning the nationalism, immigration control and the ethnoracial remapping of the U.S. in the 1920s. It discusses the quota law of immigration that marks a fundamental shift in orientation toward foreign immigration. The immigration trend before World War I reflected on the tradition of laissez-faire labor mobility that dated to the colonial period. After the war, a confluence of political and economic trends impelled the legislation of immigration restriction. It also explores the race problem before the war that includes the problems of Negro, Mexican, Asiatic and immigrants.
