Remembering Yesteryear: United States -The 1924 Immigration Act and the White Australia policy – Immigration Restriction Act of 1901

Today, there are many in the United States who have a goal to slow the growth of the immigrants of non-European ancestry. Many tend to focus on using “code wording” such as ‘illegal immigrant’ or ‘undocumented immigrants’ as rallying call.

Let’s take a look back at a time when the United States openly blocked immigrants who were not from northern Europe.

First, enjoy these videos on European migration around the world and into the United States. Then please take the time to read the historical newspaper articles to better understand how the media reported on the subject on the demographics of immigrants.

1924 Immigration Act
Enacted May 26, 1924
The 1924 Immigration Act set quotas that limited annual immigration from particular countries. The legislation identified who could enter as a “non-quota” immigrant.

Until July 1st, 1927, allowable annual quotas for each nationality would be two percent of the total population of that nationality as recorded in the 1890 Census. The minimum quota was 100.

After July 1st, 1927, allowable annual quotas for each nationality would be based on the national origins – ‘by birth or ancestry’ – of the total US population as recorded in 1920. The overall quota of 150,000 immigrants would be divided between countries in proportion to the ancestry of the 1920 population, with a minimum quota of 100.
