The early colonists were primarily of European stock, representing the nations which claimed the “new” land. By the end of the 18th century, a new society was effectively established here, taking its language and many of its customs from England. The mass migration of the 19th century was the result of a near perfect match between the needs of a new country and Europe. Europe at this time was undergoing drastic social change and economic reorganization, compounded by overpopulation. America needed immigrants for settlement, defense, and economic well-being. During the period 1820-1880, Germany, Great Britain, and Ireland accounted for the largest numbers.
In the last two decades of the 19th century, the volume of immigration continued to increase and the main sources shifted from Northern and Western to Southern and Eastern Europe. The Federal Government assumed an increasingly active role, with the first general immigration statute enacted in 1882. While the United States remained willing and able to absorb the mass migration during the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, the country's needs had changed. The frontier had closed, and the “new” immigrants, as they were characterized by the Dillingham Commission, fueled the industrialization and urbanization of America. However, there was growing ambivalence toward the urban immigrants by a predominantly rural country.
By the end of World War I, the era of mass migration was brought to a close by the enactment of increasingly restrictive legislation. Legislation enacted in 1917 codified existing restrictions and added new ones. During the 1920s, numerical restrictions were placed on immigration from the Eastern Hemisphere in the form of the national origins quota system. The 1917 and 1924 laws remained in effect until 1952. Immigration fell sharply during the intervening years in response to the de pression of the 1930s and World War II, as well as the legislative restrictions.
Legislation in 1952 codified and carried forward the essential elements of the 1917 and 1924 Acts. Enacted over President Truman's veto, it reflected the cold war atmosphere and anti-communism of the period following World War II at the onset of the Korean War. While the national origins quota system remained in place until 1965, many refugees, immigrants, and legal and illegal temporary workers entered outside it. Reflecting a major change in public attitudes toward race and national origins, 1965 legislation repealed the national origins quota system, replacing it with a system based primarily on reunification of families and needed skills.
Since 1965, the major sources of immigration have shifted from Europe to Latin America and Asia, reversing the trend of two centuries. In the 1970s, the entry of aliens outside the restrictions of the basic law-both illegally as undocumented aliens, and legally as refugees-was increasingly the dominant pattern in immigration and the basis for the major issues confronting the Congress. A series of major laws were enacted in the 1980s through 1990, consisting of the Refugee Act of 1980, the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, and the Immigration Act of 1990.
