The definition of old immigration is the immigration that took place in 1776-1890. It was called the old immigration because it brought thousands of Irish and German immigrants.
The new immigration are the people who have recently left the land where they were born and have arrived in the country where they are going to start a new life during 1890-1924. The old immigrants came from northern and western Europe and the new immigrants are from southern and eastern Europe.
The German, Irish and Italian immigrants who arrived in America during the 1800s often faced prejudice and mistrust. Many had to overcome language barriers. Others discovered that the challenges they had fled from, such as poverty or religious persecution, were to be encountered in America as well.
The Europeans were sometimes discriminated because of their religion and by how they got paid less than the Americans.

Two immigrant groups from Asia are the Chinese and Japanese Americans. These groups settled in Hawaii and California.

The Chinese arrived in the U.S. in large numbers on the West Coast in the 1850s and 1860s to work in the gold mines and railroads.The Japanese arrived in large numbers 1890–1907, many going to Hawaii, and others to the West Coast because it was a multicultural area.
The Chinese Exclusion Act was passed to limit Asian immigration. The chinese were targeted and were not allowed to immigrate to the United States. The Chinese Exclusion Act was passed to keep the Chinese from immigrating into the United States.
The group that migrated from south to west are known as farmers and pioneers. These people moved westward to find better land. The name the Indians gave was Cheyenne.
The group of people known as the African-Americans are the people who migrated from the South to the North. The name given to this movement is known as the Great Migration. It was caused because African-Americans took advantage of the opportunity to be an industrial worker.
