Compulsory Question 1. Political disfranchisement - In 1790 Naturalization Act limited naturalization to aliens who were “free white persons” and thus left slaves, free African Americans, and later Asian-Americans. - B.S Thind vs. U.S. shows that Thind argued to gain citizenship by saying that he was Caucasian; thus, U.S Supreme Court changed term “White” ; anthropological concept to common meaning. 2. Exclusionary Immigration Laws - Chinese exclusion Act was the first law that it targeted a specific ethnic group, Chinese, and suspended immigration. This act was passed because there were too many Chinese incoming to U.S for job-opportunity. - In 1917 Immigration Act was enabled to stop the influx of Asian-Indians coming to U.S. Moreover, although Asian-Indians were Caucasians in anthropological terms, they were excluded from naturalization. Then, in 1924, another Immigration Act barred Japanese; included Koreans who were treated as Japanese.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
