The History of US Immigration Policies

Ligia Domenech

Ligia Domenech

In this presentation Professor Domenech will trace the US immigration policies and see how they evolved from the colonial period until the present. She’ll explore how different political issues impacted the United States’ evaluations as positive or negative the influx of European immigrants, and also of Chinese, Mexican and Caribbean workers. These evaluations determined how the US responded to each different immigrant population over time and will determine future legislation on this issue.
