Transcript of China Immigration
My mom came to the U.S. mostly to study. First, she attended Carnegie Mellon, a school in Pittsburgh. Then,she went to work at Microsoft, in Seattle, Washington.
Others came from China too, seeking a better life and the "American Dream."
After the 1960's
After the Chinese exclusion act ended, Chinese became coming in like crazy.
China did not invent Fortune Cookies, though some people think they did. They actually were made in the U.S... Also, China is probably the oldest surviving civilization(Except for maybe Egypt.)

My mom came to the US through an airplane, and landed on the East side of the U.S.
However, their were other immigrants from china, and this is their "1/2" story.
People in the capital and the really good schools looked to U.S.Some students in China wanted to come to the U.S to study.One of these student's was my mom, who got student loans from her relatives.She Finally came here in 1993.
Back in the time of immigration,Chinese were not allowed to immigrate, based on a law.
