Italians immigrated to the United States because there was

poverty, bad wages, high taxes, and overcrowding. In the north

there was a spread of pellagra, which causes you to go insane and

then die. And in the south there was malaria, which was once just

on the coastline but due to all the deforestation that was going o,

it spread up farther inland. Italians would also come over to

America because they wanted to have the right to vote.
