BC: The End!

FC: By: Genelle Snyder

1: Immigration. From other places around the world to America.

2: When they got over here they were poor they would beg on streets. Or where snatched off the boats when they got here to work for those rude people that made them work. The Irish arrived at a time of need for America. The country was growing and it needed men to do the heavy work of building bridges, canals, and railroads. It was hard, dangerous work, a common expression heard among the railroad workers was "an Irishman was buried under every tie." Desperation drove them to these jobs. Not only the men worked, but the women too. They became chamber maids, cooks, and the caretakers of children. | Irish Immigrants in America during the 19th Century

3: Though life in Ireland was cruel, emigrating to America was not a joyful event...it was referred to as the American Wake for these people knew they would never see Ireland again. Those who pursued this path did so only because they new their future in Ireland would only be more poverty, disease, and English oppression. America became their dream. Early immigrant letters described it as a land of abundance and urged others to follow them through the "Golden Door." These letters were read at social events encouraging the young to join them in this wonderful new country.

4: During the mass emigration from Italy during the century between 1876 to 1976, the U.S. was the largest single recipient of Italian immigrants in the world. However, their impact was not as great as countries like Argentina and Brazil. That was due to the fact that hundreds of thousands of immigrants from nations all over the world were migrating to the U.S. at the same time and American born natives already made up the majority ethnic group. | Italian Immigrants in America.

5: The Italians were noted for their diligence and sobriety as workmen. In the late 19th and 20th centuries, Italians often became fishermen, shoemakers, waiters, fruit sellers, and tradesmen. Most were unskilled laborers though, working in mines and construction jobs. Over the years, the Italians rose up the economic scale but acquiring job skills in blue -collar job rather than by becoming educated and entering that profession.

6: Some good reasons they might want to leave where they were from is cause they where worked to death. Coming to the US they might not have to work as much as what they do from where they lived before. | Good things about immigration.

7: A bad part of traveling to the US is that could be a long distances to travel. Things might happen to them. If they have anything they might get robbed. | Bad things about immigration
