IMMIGRATION UPDATES AND A CHANCE TO SPEAK YOUR MIND!
Not until the end of the nineteenth century did Congress raise the question of limiting access to this country. At that time, however, critics argued against open immigration on two grounds: first, that there was no longer any room for new immigrants, and second, that immigration was changing the demographics of the nation. These arguments eventually prevailed, and in 1924 Congress passed legislation that established strict quotas, bringing a century of open immigration to an end. Some of the arguments raised at the beginning of the century are also being made today by those who would limit, or in some cases entirely end, immigration.

We set this nation up ... to vindicate the rights of man. We did not name any differences between one race and another. We opened our gates to all the world and said: "Let all men who want to be free come to us and they will be welcome."
(Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), U.S. president. Address at Independence Hall, Philadelphia (July 4, 1914).
(Hemos establecido esta nacion hasta ... para reivindicar los derechos del hombre. No dio el nombre de todas las diferencias entre una raza y otra. Abrimos nuestras puertas a todo el mundo y dijo: "Que todos los hombres que quieren ser libres vienen a nosotros y seran bienvenidos.")
