The paper examines immigration statistics from the 1930s to the 1980s that show significant shifts in immigration patterns. The paper discusses the high levels of German immigration during World War II that reflect the political and social chaos then. The paper then focuses on the 1950's shift from European immigration to Latin-American, namely Mexican immigration, that highlights many social issues. The paper concludes that as immigration is a basic social situation in America, based on the real and perceived standard of living and opportunity levels in the US, there is no doubt it will remain a strong social current in the nation.
