Immigration Issues of the 1920s and 1990sAlthough the United States has placed tougher restrictions and regulations on immigration nevertheless the American public is unsatisfied with the results because the entrance of immigrants has not been stopped completely or severely restricted It is true that immigration laws need to be revised but not by severely restricting or stopping it Opening the floodgates of immigration will only benefit the United StatesThe United States was and still is a nation of immigrants and by its very nature it will always be one The common failure to appreciate that fundamental fact and the flawed assumption that one day the country will have assumed its fully developed state and will no longer need or want any more immigrants are at the heart of many misunderstandings These misunderstandings have been present since people began to migrate Misunderstandings rise and fall like sunsets reaching a zenith inside and outside the borders of America and across the globe They have intensified over the past century Two significant periods the 1920 s and the 1990 s offer a unique perspective of issues arguments and ethnic finger-pointing The American public believes that the current levels of immigration are too high and that illegal immigration is a serious problem Author Maldwyn Jones describes the original premise of the Founding Fathers as The gradual expansion of the frontiers of immigration forced upon Americans the necessity of broadening the concept of equality to which the nation had been dedicated at birth When the Founding Fathers subscribed to the doctrine that all men are created equal they could not have envisaged that the infant republic would be invaded by the people from every corner of the earth anxious to test the truth of what they proclaimed Americans are at times reluctant to grant equal rights to all men of whatever origins Public opinion cries out for tighter restrictions and tougher legislation harsher enforcement stiffer penalties for offenders and criminalizing
