In the late 1800s, racial tensions between white and Chinese Americans were high. The US government passed the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882. This act restricted immigration from China. This book explores this act’s effects and its influence on modern immigration laws. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards.
