was said that only the best fit are the ones who should have the job, meaning African Americans can never take
Nguyen 4a whites man job. This created a race riot in Chicago and led to violence and buildings set on fire. African Americans should be protected under the Amendments but aren’t, even though they are citizens, they are treatedas immigrants and still discriminated against. Their jobs were taken away in a flash of an eye while also not being told that their job was only temporarily. No one should have their source of income taken away without a notice if they have done nothing but good for the job and the economy. It is only fair to stay true to the Amendments that are fully in use today. It is known that the United States attitude towards migration has changed. Policies were made back in 1911 by the Investigations of the Immigration Commission that resulted in restricting the number of immigrantsthat comes to the United States. Some reasons to restrict were if they are unable to read or write, limiting the number of each race each arriving, if they are unskilled, and the amount of money in possession at the port of arrival. Anti-Immigrant movements existed long before this also, ever since the Know-Nothing Party because politics was not a thing yet. However, what the government fails to consider is that immigrants are not only essential to the economy but to the United States itself. It makes up the melting pot and have made America how it is today. They also served in the military, took unwanted jobs, accepted the fact that they were a minority,and after all of that, Americans took that as an advantage. The United States represents freedom and opportunityfor everyone, and so does the Statue of Liberty but the past does not represent that.It only right to for the United States to welcome all migration now then later. It is the least the country can do to serve and stay true to the purpose of the country. Everyone has a different goal in this country and it shouldn’t fear those who have the mindset that immigrants are taking away certain things because there are many options and opportunities out there. The United States is a melting pot and known to be diverse. It is the land of the free and home of the brave.
