How was America affected?
Italian immigrants with limited knowledge of the English language felt that they could not rely on American law officials to protect them, so they turned to the Mafia. Americans, however, saw the rapid increase of business racketeering and exploitation as a threat and a violation to human rights, so they pushed Congress to action.
As a result, anti-racketeering laws were created, and although the Mafia had been severely weakened, it had still not been completely brought down.

were not limited to:

- drugs
- people (human
trafficking)
- alcohol

Alcohol was the

organized crime as a whole.
