Despite having to pick up their life and leave, the immigrants came in by millions to the United States in the late 19th century and 21st century to build better lives for their families economically, religiously, and educationally. In the 19th century, the United States was an economic boom. Many Chinese came to America for the gold rush in California. They did not believe America was a new home, but a place to work and return to their families rich. Many were turned down at an immigration station: Angel Island, while others were pushed out of finding gold and forced to work degrading jobs.
Krikorian presents a good argument and has done his homework. The author seems to respect patriotism and feels we have a greater obligation to our citizens than foreigners. Krikorian speaks of a country we once were when our grandparents came to America but not that same country now. He argues our immigration laws need to be shaped to improve the United States along with the government enforcing more stringent immigration laws. This would shrink the illegal population and life for American workers would improve.
Laws regulating work and production were limited. Additionally, most manufactured goods were imported, subsequently limiting the quantity and selection of available goods. In response to this industrial growth and prosperity, drastic changes in the lives of Americans took place. The population increases in cities across America were astonishing and contributed to a decline in rural population. By 1890, several cities touted populations over 1 million people and by 1900, New York City was the second largest city in the world, outranked only by London.
Stresemann controlling inflation was the main reason behind the success of the Weimar republic in 1923-1928. Do you agree? These actions taken out by Stresemann for controlling of Inflation between the years 1923 up until 1928 were indeed the main reason behind the Weimar republics success. This is enforced by Stresemann putting such things in place like the Dawes Plan, Introduction of new currency, French troops leaving the Ruhr, foreign affairs and economic growth. In the year 1924 one of Stresemann’s aims as Foreign Minister of Germany was to get the country back on its feet financially so that it would be possible to keep up with the set negotiations by the Treaty of Versailles.
America had the resources to solely rely on agricultural, but the incoming of new inventions made it harder to pass up a great opportunity and America had to use these innovations to their advantage. The Industrial Revolution brought many settlers to America to work in the growing factories. More workers meant more production, thus creating an economic boom in America. This economic boom was also the start of prosperity for the people in America. The fact that people would travel West and have a new way of life using the new technology and at the same time being able to have land that was all their own.
Therefore, the government must maintain the secure society. Secondly, the government is responsible to create jobs and reduce unemployment. The government controls the finances.

The early twentieth century was an era of business expansion and progressive reform in the United States. The Progressive era was a time of immense change in America and American society. The progressives, as they called themselves, struggled to improve American society by working toward equality. Progressives shared optimism about American citizens’ ability to improve social conditions, by actively intervening, both politically and morally, and ensure social justice. During an age of mass industrialization and urbanization, obtaining social justice was of vital importance because with social justice established, social control would naturally be achieved due to the satisfaction of citizens being treated equally.
Since then America has forgotten the huge role immigration has played throughout history and the contribution it led to the development of America, as well. U.S immigration has brought upon the debate for the future of American jobs, impacts, and benefits. Statistics demonstrate that immigration has helped the United States with employment by adding jobs and bringing in more tax payers adding a positive effect on the United States. Before the recession, when the economy was expanding (2000-2007), 60 percent of the net increase in employment among the working-age went to immigrants. Even though they accounted for just 38 percent of the population, immigrants still took majority of the jobs in the United States (Camarota, Zeigler).
Much of this investment came from already industrialized countries like Germany, Great Britain, and France whose business owners looked for new investment opportunities in the United States. These investors put money into the work of mechanics and engineers with the expertise to develop new, more efficient ways of mass-producing goods. Machines benefited the United States by allowing business owners to specialize in the production of goods and manufacture them in large quantities to distribute throughout the nation or export. As a result, the cost of mass-produced goods went down as their quantity went up causing industrial profits to rise. With the creation of transcontinental railroads and telephones, marketing nationally was available to distribute these goods.
