The United States has a larger immigrant population than any other country in the world, leading many to perceive that the U.S. has always had an open-door policy, until recent times. However, today’s immigration crisis is not the first time we have been faced with managing large numbers of people who wish to permanently reside here. This lecture will explore the four major waves of immigration, our country’s fluctuations between welcoming and restrictive, and the policies that have been instituted during our country’s history.
