Transcript of Immigration

Immigration
Four Reasons People came to America
America=Freedom
America=Safety
America=Life
America=Adventure
People escaped from oppressive governments, high taxes, forced military service for hated monarchs, and few job opportunities.
In many countries, people of certain religions, such as Jews and Catholics, were discriminated against or worse attacked and sometimes killed.
With no chance to get a decent education or find enough food to feed their families, many came to America hoping for better opportunities.
A desire for excitement lured some people to the U.S.
Q: How would you define an "oppressive government"?
Oppressive: (uh-press-iv) Cruel and unjustly harsh.
Immigrants wanted to be able to choose their own religion. Example: Protestants were facing trouble in Germany.
Example: Crop failures in Germany, Irish Potato Famine of 1846, workers lost jobs in Europe due to factories, etc.
Q: How did the first immigrants get to America?
Immigrants traveled many miles aboard a ship, the ocean voyage was long, and they traveled in the steerage of the ship. There were also many wars in Europe during this time, so some European governments made it difficult for people to leave the country.
Roadmap:

1.First Wave of Immigrants

The 1st wave of immigrants was approximately 1810-1860. From 1810-1860, 5 million immigrants came to the U.S.

Immigrants Adjust
"I'm here. What's next?"
Q: Why did cities grow and develop?
Q: What factors influenced immigrants to settle in cities?
Q: What did Jane Addams do to help solve immigration problems?
Most immigrants would find work in cities which caused cities and their industries to grow.
3 ways Immigrants Adjusted:

1. Immigrants went to work in cities
2. Immigrants tried to assimilate
3. Immigrants settled in the same ethnic neighborhoods
Jane Addams and Hull House:

1. Started the U.S. Settlement House movement
2. The first American woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize
3. Hull House offered education for children and parents who never had the chance to go to school.
Changing Cities
Q: How did Immigrants to the U.S adjust?
3 reasons why cities developed:

1. There were specialized industries
2. Immigration to America from other countries
3. Movement of Americans from rural(farms) to Urban(cities) areas.
Rapid industrialization and urbanization led to overcrowded immigrant neighborhoods.
Challenges of Cities
Political machines aka political bosses tried to attend to the needs of new immigrants. They bribed immigrants for votes.
Tenements( ten-uh-mints): Run-down apartment buildings that barely meet minimal standards.
Ghettos(get-ohs): Poor areas of a city where people from similar ethnic groups live.
Urbanization(ur-ban-is-zay-shun): The process by which many people come to live in cities.
