October 20, 2009 Review Monopoly – The Game? Immigration – Old v. New Problems with Immigrant Ideals: Political freedom – had many overtones of racial discrimination. White Europeans frequently were given more freedoms than immigrants from other backgrounds. “Poor” laws and health restrictions were meant to exclude some immigrants. Today, new legal immigrants must have sponsors to prevent people from coming to the US and claiming social welfare benefits. Civic Equality : While America has a myth of being a great melting pot, a bastion of cultural assimilation, most of the real life of immigrants was rooted in their ethnic enclaves. That meant power in political machines based on ethnicity ; the categorization of civil rights based on shifting notions of racial class (i.e. Italians, Mexicans). Economic Opportunity : In the late 19 th century, immigrants provided cheap labor to help industrial concerns grow (sound familiar?). Railroads, textile mills and mines depended on these workers. Labor unions become a problem.

    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.
