This Image shows the "changing face of America". It has many different faces of different races hoving over America. Since America is constantly changing that would possibly mean so is our face. Our face would possibly mean our people. Since a country is not a country without citizens of some sort. So if we were getting flooded with immigrants of different races that would mean our face was changing with whichever race had the greater number of people in the country.

This Map is a reference towards the amount of people immigrated to America. It shows where they came from as well. There are immigrants from all directions.I think the cartoon would be somewhat better if there was an anger look on America instead of just dots. Either way this shows the flood of immigrants, where they came from, and how many arrived.

Midsummer Night's insight:

     The Anti-Immigration laws of the 1920's was targeted towards specific races immigrating to the United States. Congress created laws threatened deportation and jail. They also created taxes for oversea immigrants to enter the United States legally. These immigrants caused more problems then they could have fixed. Some problems they could have fixed was the global economy could have become bigger. With more immigrants that causes more of a population which is good for a country. The more citizens, the more taxes and profits the government could bring in. Which again, is good for the economy. With more immigrants more oppurtunities became available. More inventors, artists, authors, etc. travelled into the United States so they could become noticed. With these positives, however there came many negatives. Majority of those negatives became deadly and cruel.

     With the flood of immigrants the idea of Nativism was born into the heads of US citizens. Nativism meant the idea of protecting the oppurtunities and jobs for those native to the country against those who immigrated here. The idea cause the rebirth of many groups, including the Ku Klux Klan. The clan strongly believed in Nativism and did their greatest to protect it. Not only attacking African Americans, but Catholic, Jews, Mexicans, and other religions and race members. They believed that they were protected their country and oppurtunities for, "the fellow white man". Immigrants did begin to take jobs in the US. This caused problems because people felt they had a right to those jobs, again Nativism comes into play. The job market became cut throat. This lead to the beating, killing, and dissapearences of immigrant job holders. The laws caused Nativism, which lead to death and dissapearances of people who have done nothing wrong. All they were doing was trying to live the American Dream.

This map shows an attempt by Uncle Sam to filter out some immigrants. From the look of it he appears to be putting a gate on the funnel. If anything he is trying to add a checkpoint, or a tax of some sort. It looks like it is decreasing, but this won't last for long. Nothing ever does.
