Why did Italians migrate to the US?
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.
