Ⅱ. Immigration- The Past (Before 1960)
From 1820 to 1960 more than 39million aliens have migrated to U.S in search of another beginning. There are as many different reasons as there are different people. Some immigrated to avoid starvation. Some ought adventure. Others wished to escape unbearable family situations. The main reason for immigration, however, has long been economic opportunity- the lure of better land, a better job, or a better life. Mrs. Mognini says, “ In Italy, most children have to drop out of school and work because their family need money”(“Good things…”,34). The second reason for immigration is to have freedom. Norrei S. Yuh from South korea says, “It’s not because the money is here-…- the thing is that here people speak freely”(32). Mr.Yuh means that the U.S is a nation that offers unparalleled freedom which is not only in politics but in society, economies and personal life. During this year, Korea was under the respotism.
