I’m studying for my History class and need an explanation.

Primary Source Selections and Topics (the readings are available in the links below) Pick 1 of the 3 options below and write a 900 to 1100 page paper that answers the questions listed. Please include explanations and not just facts.


1. READ:


Hearings before the Committee on Immigration, United States Senate, 1921. Pages 223-231, “Statement of Hon. John C. Box, Representative in Congress from the Second District of Texas.” Background on this hearing: Background(2).pdf

AND ALSO READ on repatriation: Mae M. Ngai, Impossible Subjects: Illegal Aliens and the Making of Modern America (Princeton University Press, 2004), pp. 71-75: Mae Ngai.pdf

Using the sources above as well as readings from your textbook, compose an essay in which you consider the following questions:

  • Why did Congressman Box oppose Mexican workers being allowed into the United States? How do the Congressman’s statements regarding Mexican immigration reflect the nativist ideas of the early 1920s?
  • In general, how does the Congressman characterize people from Mexico? On what basis does he make these assertions? Analysis: why do you think that he holds these views?
  • How does the Immigration Act of 1924 relate to Congressman Box’s views? What is the significance of the manner in which the provisions and quotas are structured?
  • See the photo above. What is the “shipment?” How does this photograph relate to the testimony by Congressman Box?
  • How does the repatriation of people of Mexican heritage (including U.S. citizens) during the Great Depression also pertain to the views expressed by Congressman Box?

  • By the turn of the century had conditions for African Americans changed significantly? Why did Washington promote accomodationism? Why did activists such as Du Bois reject his leadership and form the NAACP in 1911?
  • What happened at Tulsa in 1921 and what does this indicate regarding the movement during that time frame?
  • How does the material presented in these sources continue to resonate within the United States today?
