From the Paper:"During the 1870s, America's economy greatly suffered while that of Britain and Germany flourished. While the number of British and German immigrants decreased that of China, Norway, Sweden, Canada, Denmark and southern and eastern Europe increased. Seeing this, the United States passed its first restrictive immigration law in 1875. "During the late 1870's, Californians demanded laws to keep out Chinese immigrants. In some instances, mobs attacked Chinese immigrants, who were accused of lowering wages and unfair business competition. They were also denounced as inassimilable and as racially inferior" (Joyce Bryant, Immigration Into The United States)."
