Chinese immigrants to Canada. Chinese immigrating to Canada were treated very poorly. Canada at the time was very racist against Chinese and all asians . Even the government was racist. Chinese people were not allowed to vote or own property. Chinese wern't considered people and often had their ho…mes or stores vandalised, broken and burned. They worked in high risk, low pay hardworking jobs like building the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR). The governments stopped allowing Chinese immigrants in 1923 with the Chinese Immigration act. This ban was lifted May 14th 1947 after the first world war. This was due to Allies made with Asian countries and the effects the Nazi's death camps on Canadians.. ( Full Answer )

The domestic policy of the United States in the 1950s was one ofmassive production. It was assumed that the nation was under threatfrom the Soviet Union, so production of weapons was a priority. Itwas actually very good for the economy.
From John McCain's campaign website... Immigration is one of those challenging issues that touch on many aspects of American life.. I have always believed that our border must be secure and that the federal government has utterly failed in its responsibility to ensure that it is secure. If we ha…ve learned anything from the recent immigration debate, it is that Americans have little trust that their government will honor a pledge to do the things necessary to make the border secure.. As president, I will secure the border. I will restore the trust Americans should have in the basic competency of their government. A secure border is an essential element of our national security. Tight border security includes not just the entry and exit of people, but also the effective screening of cargo at our ports and other points of entry.. But a secure border will contribute to addressing our immigration problem most effectively if we also:. Recognize the importance of building strong allies in Mexico and Latin America who reject the siren call of authoritarians like Hugo Chavez, support freedom and democracy, and seek strong domestic economies with abundant economic opportunities for their citizens. . Recognize the importance of pro-growth policies -- keeping government spending in check, holding down taxes, and cutting unnecessary regulatory burdens -- so American businesses can hire and pay the best. . Recognize the importance of a flexible labor market to keep employers in business and our economy on top. It should provide skilled Americans and immigrants with opportunity. Our education system should ensure skills for our younger workers, and our retraining and assistance programs for displaced workers must be modernized so they can pursue those opportunities . Recognize the importance of assimilation of our immigrant population, which includes learning English, American history and civics, and respecting the values of a democratic society. . Recognize that America will always be that "shining city upon a hill," a beacon of hope and opportunity for those seeking a better life built on hard work and optimism. . Border security and our failed immigration system are more examples of an ailing Washington culture in need of reform to regain the trust of Americans. In too many areas -- from immigration and pork barrel spending to Social Security, health care, energy security and tax relief -- business-as-usual politics prevents addressing the important challenges facing our nation..

Obama says that he is going to give all immigrants a green card so they can stay in the U.S
In 1918, World War I ended and in 1941, World War II began. In between the time was the Roaring 20s era (a time of economic boom) and the Great Depression (quite the opposite). During this time, the US looked inward to focus economic growth (during the 20s) and smooth out the depression with the New… Deal (in the 30s). The US adopted an "isolationist" policy in which they pretty much ignored (for the most part) foreign affairs. They didn't not want to nor did they need to get involved in world politics and warfare until 1941. You know what happened afterward. there was no economic boom at all. when the war ended unemployment jumped to over 11%. farming dropped off because there was no more foreign demand for American agriculture. America always had said that they wouldn't get into foreign affairs but as history shows they always have. ( Full Answer )

There is no change at all on the way tha Liverpool Immigration Border is dealing with paperwork. They take too and too long to issue a single Residence Card.

I think he meant the United States Immigration Act of 1990. from wikipedia: The Immigration Act of 1990 (Pub.L. 101-649, 104 Stat. 4978, enacted November 29, 1990) increased the number of legal immigrants allowed into the United States each year. It also created a lottery program that randomly assigned a number of visas. This was to help immigrants from countries where the United States did not often grant visas. Importantly, the modifications also removed homosexuality as a grounds for exclusion from immigration. The Act also provided for exceptions to the English testing process required for naturalization set forth by the Naturalization Act of 1906. After the Act, the United States would admit 700,000 new immigrants annually, up from 500,000 before the bill's passage. The new system continued to favor people with family members already in the United States, but added 50,000 "diversity visas" for countries from which few were emigrating as well as 40,000 permanent job-related visas and 65,000 temporary worker visas. Additional provisions strengthened the U.S. Border Patrol and altered language regarding disease restrictions in a way that permitted the secretary of Health and Human Services to remove AIDS from the list of illnesses making a prospective immigrant ineligible to enter the country.

How provinces influence immigration laws and policies. The provinces of Canada kind of make their own rules a bit. They decide how many and the kind of immigrants they need. The province can cut off the amount of immigrants at any time they wanted to unless families came over to be reunited. The goo…d thing about immigration, you get what you need for workers and you can help people have better lives. Families are safer and together again, with no worrying of food, safety, and shelter. We make the laws and policies fair and so they fit the needs of jobs. There are few problems but they help Canada in a good way. This is how the provinces influence immigration laws and policies..........hope this helps a bit. I had this question for Social and I think this is mainly right. ( Full Answer )
1) Its too complicated - there are over 70 different visa types.\n2) Its too heavily weighted towards rich, highly skilled migrants. Countries which get the most benefit from migration policies bring workers in at all levels like the American Green Card system. This provides a mix of both skilled an…d unskilled labour and helps generate greater economic activity. The idea that only well educated, wealthy migrants are of benefit to a country or economy is patently false.\n3) It hasn't been properly promoted to the general population in terms of the social, cultural and economic benefits of migration - which would be a key component to reducing racism and xenophobia.

There are several changes that the immigration Act of 1990 broughtto immigration policy. This mainly regulated the number ofimmigrants being admitted into the US per year.
Immigrants were not treated very well at all in the early part ofthe twentieth century. There was a lot of discrimination againstpeople from other countries, and there were even some laws on thebooks that explicitly discriminated against immigrants from Asiancountries.
The Republicans are for legal migration to avoid illegal migration that has many disadvantages associated with it. There is large number of advantages associated with following the legal migration policy. UN being a global power and great model of democracy implementing existing laws such as announ…cing lottery system for migration of thousands workers and others is in a position to improve global relations for trading and other national objectives. Migration strategy gives required workforce with desired skills at required time for meeting the national requirements from different countries and areas. The immigration policy allows for work visas according to planned requirements and caters to accommodate migrant, seasonal workers, students, dependents among others to suite the immigration needs. Legal immigrants are given equal rights, they are registered and pay taxes and they have to respect the law thus reducing the chances of corruption, crimes and getting proper output from the work force .Genuine migrant and seasonal workers being legal and given every opportunity and incentive to be legal feel as equal citizen of US. It make their lives easier, more stable, and more economically beneficial thus they contribute with full devotion in their work giving more out put , they have to all the taxes and they have to respect the law . Republican support the legal migration policy giving clear and relatively easy instructions on how to get visas and process the applications quickly and efficiently to help everyone involved stops or reduces illegal migration. The large number of problems like crimes , corruption by employers by not giving full wages and corruption by the illegal immigrants not paying any taxes are created those could be finished by offering legal migration incentives. The existing laws and regulations for legal migration might be improved to remove any faults in the procedures to solve large number associated with illegal uncontrolled migration causing great loss of taxes, lower output of workforce and increasing crimes thus resulting in great loss to US. It is just enforcing the law as it stands is in the national interest of US to stop illegal migration and al problems associated with it ( Full Answer )
In 1901, the federal government passed an Act that was designed to end the employment of Pacific Islanders. Known as The Immigration Restriction Act 1901. This law received royal assent on 23 December 1901 and was described as an Act 'to place certain restrictions on immigration and to provide for… the removal from the Commonwealth of prohibited immigrants'. It prohibited entry to immigrants that were considered to be insane, or likely to become a charge upon the public or upon any public or charitable institution, as well as any person suffering from an infectious or contagious disease 'of a loathsome or dangerous character'. Prostitutes, criminals, and anyone under a contract or agreement to perform manual labour within Australia (with some limited exceptions) were also excluded. Restrictions included a dictation test, used to exclude certain applicants by requiring them to pass a written test in a language, with which they were not necessarily familiar, nominated by an immigration officer. In 1919 the Prime Minister, William Morris Hughes, hailed it as 'the greatest thing we have achieved'. These restriction were not finaly completely lifted until the early 1970'S. ( Full Answer )
Wow. You can come at this from SO MANY different angles. First, I don't think the written policy/laws are inconsistent with American ideals. The US is a nation of immigrants and will remain so; every US citizen at the moment of our founding was an immigrant in the sense that not one of them was born… in "The United States". This fact is a vital part of our history and identity. However, it does not mean that we are or should be a nation without borders. If nothing else, the Constitution is our foundation as a nation built on law and the rule of law. Some provisions of the Constitution were in place to recognize that no one in the world was a natural born citizen at the inception of the Constitution. Some provisions were put in place to account for our uneven and cowardly handling of slavery issues. But now there are legal steps to attaining citizenship here as in almost all other nations, and our limits are reasonably generous. The US immigration system is currently not 'broken' as many put it, but ineffectively implemented. Immigration is the responsibility of the federal government, and regarding this the federal government has catastrophically failed in it duty. There was an 'amnesty' under President Reagan, and after that time immigration laws were supposed to be upheld. Every president since Reagan has failed miserably in his responsibility to enforce this law. And now that utter incompetence has brought us to another immigration crisis, some are advocating an 'amnesty', after which, of course, we will 'enforce the law'. Contact me about a bridge in New York City that I'm selling. I am a second generation 'immigrant citizen' on my mother's side, and a sixth generation 'immigrant citizen' on my father's side. I am proud of my heritage and of my US citizenship. But I do not agree that people should have the right to demand citizenship in my country just because they had the opportunity to cross the border. While many wait years to go through the proper legal steps, others successfully evade the law and demand rights and services. This is extremely painful and conflicting to many, because we understand the extreme conditions that many wish to escape. But the US is not under any legal or moral obligation to simply take in without question anyone who arrives, or to be the savior for everyone in the world who is oppressed. What other sovereign nation does that? In some countries, an attempt to do this will result in prison time or worse. ( Full Answer )

I don't believe one did! The reason why I think that is because any Southern American immigrant is treated more harshly, and with less justice than other immigrants from different parts of the world. I think that the reasons we get immigrants from Mexico as much as we do is because some want to lea…ve Mexico, for THOUSANDS of reasons or others just want the opportunities we have in America, and we are the closest ones. There really could be MILLIONS of possible reasons. ( Full Answer )

every company in the UK is to adhere to government policy, immigration is a growing part of our lives, and the Human declaration of human rights outlines the rights and freedoms of all residents in the UK. It also includes freedom from discrimination and the right to life and equal treatment. Additi…onally, citizenship is taught in many schools across the UK and teaches how push and pull factors are appealing for economic migrants. Education about the reasons for immigration are sadly blurred currently in the UK, yet I think I can outline this for you. A push factor is where a person feels pushed from their country due to war for example, and pull factors are things that attract immigrants, for example the right to employment, these rights are written into the law and so it protects them. In countries such as Africa, human rights are not adhered to unless they are written into the law and become legal rights. Therefore feel unsafe in their countries, so they move here to a more humane lifestyle. A company can make its employees aware of the issues immigrants feel back home and can also enforce laws such as the racial equality act, which enforces how taunts and discrimination in the workplace shouldn't be tolerated. Government policy is implemented for a reason, make your employees aware of this and educate them further about this common issue in the UK. Hope this helps! ( Full Answer )
U.S. policy on immigration hasn't fluctuated, the policy has been the same. To enter the United States you must fill out the proper forms, submit to a background check and follow the proper steps when you enter the United States. What has fluctuated is the enforcement of this policy. The Enforcem…ent has been lax at times do to political pressure or economic concerns. Political pressure is placed upon the border patrol and police because the politicians are looking for votes from these ethnic groups. Economic pressure is place when the budget is cut which places less money for the border patrol which causes them to cut positions or the amount of fuel and equipment use to protect the border.

Not at all. Everybody is the same before law and there should be no concessions based on the status.
The 1990 immigration Act states that the annual number of immigrants per year is 700,000. The most important types of immigrants on the criteria are ones that have to immigrate on a work basis or for family reunification.
The policy has changed to become more open-minded. It acceptspeople of all cultures since the 1900s.
Immigration to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland since 1922  has been substantial, in particular from Ireland and the former colonies and other territories of the British Empire - such as India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, the Caribbean, South Africa, Kenya and Hong Kong - under… British nationality law. Others have come as asylum seekers, seeking protection as refugees under the United Nations 1951 Refugee Convention, or from European Union (EU) member states, exercising one of the EU's Four Freedoms. About half the population increase between the 1991 and 2001 censuses was due to foreign-born immigration. 4.9 million people  (8.3 percent of the population at the time) were born abroad, although the census gives no indication of their immigration status or intended length of stay. Provisional figures show that in 2009, 567,000 people arrived to live in the UK whilst 371,000 left, meaning that net inward migration was 196,000. The number of people immigrating to and emigrating from the UK both fell between 2008 and 2009.   In 2006, there were 149,035 applications for British citizenship, 32 percent fewer than in 2005. The number of people granted citizenship during 2006 was 154,095, 5 percent fewer than in 2005. The largest groups of people granted British citizenship were from India, Pakistan, Somalia, and the Philippines.  In 2006, 134,430 people were granted settlement in the UK, a drop of 25 per cent on 2005.  In comparison, migration to and from Central and Eastern Europe has increased since 2004 with the accession to the European Union of eight Central and Eastern European states, since there is free movement of labour within the EU.

One problem with the current US immigration laws are that they are too often circumvented and illegal aliens gain entry to the USA. Another problem is that legitimate applications to enter the USA and obtain a green card takes allot of time. Also, some companies who wish to hire a specific non Ameri…can citizen are required to post an ad for the job in a major newspaper. This is to provide for a chance for an American to fill the position. The company receives no acceptable resumes (so they say) and proceed to have their immigration lawyer begin the process of bringing the already "picked" job seeker to the USA. ( Full Answer )
It depends on what country you're talking about, but most countries in the world do not have (or no longer have) immigration policies specifically for Jews.
This depends on the country we are talking about, as there wasimmigration to more countries than just the USA in 1845 and in1940. Part of the answer is, the different times in each casereflects the difference in the group of people we are focusing on.Generally speaking, the average immigrant in 1845… was less educatedthan was the case in 1940. This is because the educational systemsof many countries were less developed during the earlier period. Asfar as the US is concerned, in 1845 many immigrants came fromIreland, escaping famine and searching for employment. Many otherEuropeans were fleeing to America at this time, such as French,Italian, German, Polis and Russian immigrants. Many were uneducatedpeasants being pushed out of Europe because of the industrialrevolution. In 1940 and during the next years of WWII many Jewishpeople immigrated to the US to escape persecution and the horrorsof the war. At this time, many Chinese people were struggling withcitizenship issues in the US, and in addition to this they weremistakenly thought or suspected to be Japanese and thereforeenemies of the US at the time. During the war, so many Americanworkers had been drafted into the military that employers weredesperate for getting cheap labor. Therefore, it was often easierfor immigrants to get work right away than it had been a hundredyears earlier. Finally, many Mexicans began moving into Texasduring the 1940s. ( Full Answer )

First, in Lincoln's time, there were no massive waves of immigrants from Russia or Italy or China, like there would be several decades later. During the era when he was in office, many of the immigrants came from Ireland and Germany, and they were members of the Catholic religion; America had up to …that point been mostly a Protestant country, and some people, including a group called the "Know-Nothings," were very opposed to Catholics coming to the US. Lincoln, however, refused to go along with anti-Catholic prejudice, and he supported the right of those immigrants to come here. ( Full Answer )
