Bad Diet . Immigrants who come to the US who gain weight most likely do because of a change in diet. The food in America is not exactly healthy all the time, and it is actually becoming more expensive to eat a healthy diet than to go to McDonalds for lunch.. At my school I have seen it a number …of times when foreign exchange students gain a lot of weight in just 1 year in America. They have told me that it is because of all the fast food. They say that they had never eaten so much fast food in their life.. So, I think that immigrants to the US gain weight because they were not raised with such a bad diet, so they are not used to it. High fructose corn syrup is added to nearly everything we eat. It has no food value and is added as a sweetener and to bulk up food items so the consumer thinks he is getting more for his money. The body does not recognize HFCS and stores it as FAT. . Answer: Probably because they're poor and can only afford low-quality, inexpensive, salty food which usually has a long shelf life. Canned foods such as soup, spagetti with tomato sauce, stews, and most frozen foods, cause weight gain and fatigue because the salt holds so much water in the body. (MORE)

As early as the late 19th century or early 20th century, many immigrants came by boat, to Ellis or Angel Island. European immigrates would travel to Ellis Island, and Asian immigrants would travel to Angel Island, where they would be inspected for diseases or other things that could prevent them fro…m working, such as pregnancy. If an immigrant would have one of these illnesses, he/she would either have to go to their home country, or stay in these poor conditions till they overcame the illness. About 75% of these illnesses were caused by the boat ride over to America, as the conditions were about the same as the slave ships. (Cramped quarters, little or no food, etc.) Today is much different, legal immigrants usually come by plane, and wait a couple of months till they are accepted as citizens. (MORE)
Like most countries, the United States alternated between welcomingnewcomers and wishing they would stay away. Some Americannativists, especially in the early to mid-1800s, wanted only thosewho were descendants of the original colonists to live in the US.They questioned whether immigrants with no ti…es to America would beloyal to this country, and they feared that immigrants wouldsecretly remain loyal to the old country. Other nativists disliked people from the "wrong" religion--Catholics and Jews, for example, and later they did not want peoplefrom the "wrong" race-- Asians, free blacks from the Caribbean,etc. Thus, the main reasons that nativists opposed immigration werefear of those who were different, and later, concern thatimmigrants might take away their jobs.

Immigrate, Yes. Colonize, No. The Chinese came to the US to work. In China in the 19th centurythere was a lot of poverty and little chance to improve theircondition at home. They were employed to help build thetranscontinental railroads and to work the plantations of Hawaii.Although they were treat…ed little better than slaves and were notallowed to live in neighborhoods with the rest of society, theyworked hard and established their own communities. I don't thinkthat the term "colonize" fits their situation, they just needed towork and earn enough to send small amounts of money to theirfamilies back home. China did not have a historical policy of creating colonies. Priorto the Fall of the Qing Empire (1911), China preferred to maintainforeign vassals rather than assert direct control over areasdifficult to access from Beijing, such as Korea, Japan, Tibet,Mongolia, Turkestan, and Vietnam. Even if Chinese individuals madeit to the US West Coast before Spain, Mexico, and then the UScontrolled the area, which is very dubious, they would likely havetried to vassalize the Pacific tribes, not colonize them.

Immigration to the United States is a complex demographic phenomenon that has been a major source of population growth and cultural change throughout much of the history of the United States. The economic, social, and political aspects of immigration have caused controversy regarding ethnicity, eco…nomic benefits, jobs for non-immigrants, settlement patterns, impact on upward social mobility, crime, and voting behavior. In 2006 the United States accepted more legal immigrants as permanent residents than all other countries in the world combined.  After ethnic quotas on immigration were removed in 1965  the number of actual (first-generation) immigrants living in the United States eventually quadrupled,  from 9.6 million in 1970 to about 38 million in 2007.
