2: The Japanese came to the United States in hope for a better way of life. Japan had faced great social disruption and agricultural decline. This forced farmers to leave their land and left many workers jobless. The Japanese heard about the United States having a lot of jobs so a lot of them decided to move there. | More than 400,000 men and women moved to the United States between 1886 and 1911. Most of them moved to the archipelago of Hawaii and America's Pacific Coast. | Japanese
3: To benefit American society the Japanese brought their traditions with them. Also, they built Buddhist temples on almost every plantation. | Immigrants from Japan were not liked very much from Americans. People in the U.S. organized campaigns to exclude Japanese from U.S. life.
4: Irish | The Irish came to the U.S. because of, religious conflict, lack in political autonomy, and economic conditions. | They settled mostly in the Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania and as the years passed they also started to settle more south in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. | The Irish came to America in either colonial times or 1816.
5: To contirbute many Irish immigrants became leaders and supported union efforts. Mother Jones (Mary Harris) commited for than 50 years of her life to unionizing workers in occupations. | There were religious conflict and discrimintion against the Irish. There was a lot of tension and many riots.
6: Chinese | More than 25,000 people left their homes in China and moved to California in 1851. | The Chinese had moved to Calofornia because they had heard of a mountain of gold and they all wanted to have the gold and become more wealthy.
7: The Cinese had faced harsh circumstances in America. They faced violent racist attacks. The immigrants were beaten, tortured, and forced out of business. | The Chinese began to build their own communities and increased urban areas in America. There they had their own businesses.
8: German | The Germans had to follow a specific religion that they did not want to follow, so William Penn convinced them to come to America where they had relgious freedom in 1677. | By 1683, many Germans moved to Germantown, Pennsylvania which is now a part of Philadelphia.
9: The German immigrants were one of the first to arrive in America. They helped establish settlements in 1608 and colonies in 1620. They had also made a huge contribution to the anti-slavery movement in the United States. | Because the German immigrants were amoung the first, they were mostly on top. When they first arrived they didn't have discrimination because there weren't may people there.
10: Immigration has changed dramatically over the years. In the past there were groups of immigrants that came to the U.S., who mostly just stayed with their own ethnicity. There was a lot of violence and discrimination (that there is still now, but not as much) to immigrants who moved here. Now many differnt ethnic groups get along. There aren't riots to people because of where they came from and you can work where ever you want to work no matter what ethnicity you are. There is still many immigrants moving to America in hope for a better life today. Now they can ride airplanes instead of boats to come here faster. | Compare and Contrast
11: For all these different groups I mentioned that came to the United States had good and bad times in America. Many faced dicrimination, were poor, didn't live in good houses, and may have not been able to get jobs or had little wages. There were some immigrants who were able to get jobs. Also, compared to how they lived before some of the things they went through was an upgrade. Immigrants had freedom because they could practice any religion they wanted and at the same time they didn't have freedom because they couldn't always do the things they wanted to do. | Pros and Cons
12: In conclusion, I think it's horrible what many immigrants had to go through to become americans. I am glad that there are immigrants in America otherwise, it would probably just be Native Americans. I wouldn't even live in America if my parents hadn't immigrated here before I was born. Immigrants basically make up America, even the people who had generations of their family born here they are still originally from somewhere else. | Conclusion
