The immigrants that came to America usually sided with the Democratic-Republican Party. Because of this, part of the Alien and Sedition Acts was the Naturalization Act. This increased the number of years required for immigrants to qualify for U.S citizens from 5 years to 14 years. The federalists adopted these laws because they wanted to stay in power, and since they were aware of the fact that many of the immigrants would vote for their opposing party, this act ensured that they couldn’t vote.

Significance: The United States to this day remains a democracy and has set a standard for Democratic freedoms worldwide. Causes: The Proclamation of 1763 restricted Colonists from moving west. This caused the Colonist to develop a greater mistrust for the British parliament. The British Parliament appeared to be siding with the Indians and desired to keep all Colonists within a restricted area for better access. Effects: Many colonist had been given land grants in exchange for
The problem of not being able to speak English was one of the biggest obstacles. Moreover, during the Iranian Revolution Era, there was incident regarding the Iranians and Americans, “Vendors started selling T-shirts and bumper stickers that said ‘Iranians Go Home’ and ‘Wanted: Iranians, for target practice;’ crimes against Iranians increased” (Dumas, 117). This caused Dumas and her family to experience racism in United States and how they are persuaded so easily to leave. Even though there are many difficulties that Dumas and her family experienced, there are also benefits and other advantage that they experienced. While any other family who moved to America, education is the most common aspect that people look forward to.
America’s decision to declare independence form Great Britain was both due the change of economic policies and to the development of refining life and liberty. After driving the French out, with help from the Indians and British troops, colonist began to quarrel with Parliament’s insistence of testing the limits of their power in North America. Their control was made difficult when residents decided to smuggle and boycott goods. Eventually, the colonies resistance and loss of patience would lead them directly to independence. The Proclamation of 1763 was the first to anger the colonist.
He was implying that different cultures make it harder for people to form a relationship with one another. What the husband doesn’t realize is that America is known as the “Melting Pot”, meaning no matter who you are or where you came from people accept you for who you are. The wife brought up a sensitive spot in their marriage, about racism. He believes that statistics are the reason why those types of marriages don’t last. He also brings up that foreigners are the same way.
For more than a decade before the outbreak of the American Revolution in 1775, tensions had been building between colonists and the British authorities. American colonists were angered by the actions of the British government because these measures were directed against the interest of the colonists. Some friction married the relationship between the colonies and the Britain. Britain in the wars relied not only on American enlistments also the British needed wagons and supplies, and wanted to house troops in private homes. But British often adopted coercive techniques to achieve these goals.
The reasons for this were the new intellectual ideas coming out of Britain during the industrial revolution, mostly ideas from humanitarian philosophy. Contained in the new, rapid influx of late enlightenment philosophies was this new humanitarian philosophy that all men are created equal. While essentially reiterating most of the Lockian philosophy which dominated pre-slavery times, this put a great emphasis on combating the trend of slavery and breaking down all other barriers that limited any culture of man. The British government eventually came under this philosophy when they officially banned slavery in their country in the early 19th century. This put a huge damper on the triangular trade that put slavery in many other countries and thus led to the downfall of slavery in all modern countries.
The challenges we face Can you imagine moving from one country to another? Can you imagine leaving your friends and family and go to a place where your language, and religion is different? Well it happened to me, moving to America from Pakistan was a big step for family and I. A place where women covered themselves at all times, where it is hard to find a job, where the education does not have value like the education in America does, where the language is Urdu or Hindi. All this is a huge difference from what we call the land of freedom and opportunities: “The United States of America.” Education opportunities in America pulled us from Pakistan.

In fact, I agree with Coontz that such nostalgia can be dangerous. Because there were so many problems in 1950, such as woman’s power, blacks were segregated from whites and the media even it isn't desirable message. I believed that the 1950’s wasn’t in reality a perfect time. In “Looking for work” by Soto, the narrator was looking for work so he can provide for his family. Also, the nine year old kid is given idea about perfect of family from the TV.
