2 Come on and let me in, immigration man Can I cross the line and pray Take your fingers from the tray Let me in, irritation man I won't toe your line today I can't see it anyway IMMIGRATION TO THE UNITED STATES PRESENTATION

3 What is the United States? It is the land of second chances…

4 If the U.S.was the land of second chances…. then Europe and Asia were the lands of n o chance… In Europe and Asia you Work for the man. God how I hate “the man”

5 Barge haulers on the Volga by Repin (Russia) Dude, this is hard work Yeah, ya think they get some animals ta do this Dude we are the animals moooooooo THE “MAN” “The man’s ugly kid”

6 So why do people come here in the first place?

7 One reason to come here…

8 Economic opportunity and advancement!!!! Because in Europe and Asia you work for the “man”!!! I’m the “man” and you’re not. I own the land, and you don’t I’m rich and you’re not!!!

9 Homestead Act 1862 We are basically giving away the land for FREE!!! Yea, but there’s nothing out here…. I could have told you that %#@^)*^!!! Well, good luck with that….

10 Another reason to come here was to… Worship “God” in your own way…and not be hassled by the “man”.

11 Yet another reason to come here was to… EAT!!! The Irish Potato Famine killed over 1,000,000 people Come to America McBabe there’s plenty to eat here!!! OK!!! KIDS PACK YA BAGS, WE’RE LEAVING THIS McDUMP

12 People come to this country in…. In waves dude, in waves.

13 The first wave of immigration …(old) When? From the beginning to around the 1860s-ish Where did they come from? North western Europe

14 EnglandEngland Germany…ish IRELANDIRELAND Places Like Also, real quick…did you know that my great-grandson is your history teacher? That is why YOU people Talk like me… You guys remember global 10, and how there was No Germany until otto71, I mean 1871?

15 Second wave of immigration…(new) Where did they come from? Central + South +Eastern Europe, and Asia When? Late 1800s to early 1900s

16 Italy GreeceGreece People of Polish descent Ya see there is no “real” Poland at this point gotta wait till 1918 PLACES LIKE

17 Russia U call dis vinter? dis is nutin yes?

18 China +Japan Bringin’ some weird stuff to the west coast… …stuff that “regular” America is NOT ready for What the heck is that?!!!!? Chinese symbol for dragon

19 So where do these “new” people settle? In eastern or western coast cities!!! And they tend to “congregate” in the same areas ‘cause that’s where the factory jobs are!!!

20 Meanwhile in Boston… We settled in the north side of Boston We’re gonna settle in the south side or as “we” call it southie

21 It happened here in the Buff to.

22 Can you guess where?

23 Every “group“ that has arrived here has had to “pay a price”… Just like freshman in highschool!!! What is the price that immigrant groups have to pay?

24 The rumor of Immigrants taking “our” jobs….so you don’t hire them WOW!!! FOR REAL? Didn’t “we” build “your/our” stupid railroad?

25 Tear them down by using stereotypes, ethnic slurs, discrimination and not remembering where you or your people came from…{pick two for your sheet} Immigrants….are dirty, stupid,ugly, different, and will never “fit in” I think I’ll create a political party called the KNOW NOTHINGS Stupid, Boris,Greenhrons, Guineas,Polacks… “ ’merica ” all the way!!!

26 Tear ‘em down in the newspapers as well…

27 The are going to ruin ‘merica Let me show you how we “delt” with them…

28 Seriously… Frankenstein?…..

29 Yeah this is how “we” McParty Go get’em Dad!!! Hey!!! Christopher watch this!!!

30 Hey…um I just want to point out here that you or say your family were immigrants, I’m just sayin’

31 The US government has on several occasions tried to slow immigration or stop it all together. NATIVISM: BELIEF THAT FOREIGN-BORN PERSONS THREATEN THE MAJORITY CULTURE AND SHOULD BE BANNED. CHINESE EXCLUSION ACT (1882) no more Chinese GENTLEMEN’S AGREEMENT (no more Japanese) Wait… what? Looks like we’re staying in Japan

32 Eventually the “price” is paid and the group becomes part of the “melting pot theory or mixed salad theory” MELTING POT THEORY: Where people who come to this country “throw” off their “old ways” and become part of an American culture. MIXED SALAD THEORY: Where people who come to this country DO NOT “throw” off their “old ways” but add an element of diversity to an already diverse culture.

33 I love our new home laddy Me too, Paddy me to…
