ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the objectives of the immigration and foreign policies of the U.S. It mentions the relations between Americans and Europeans, changes in the attitudes of Americans towards immigration since 1880, restrictions on European immigration, imposed by the federal government in 1882, and the 1917 immigration law, designed to limit the number of immigrants. It discusses the Open Door policy in China, the policy of the U.S. towards oriental immigration, the 1868 Burlingame Treaty, under which Chinese were given the right to immigrate to the U.S., and the 1880 treaty regulating immigration from China. It also discusses the Immigration Act of 1924, and the McCarran-Walter Act.
