American immigration history is the story of bonded, free, and enslaved migrant labor. Immigration to a settler society advances resource extraction and economic development. Extracting agricultural products and natural resources from land can Require forced labor. Over the last 30 years the United States has been turning once again into a nation of immigrants. Roger Daniels is especially sensitive to the role of race and ethnicity in shaping American immigration policy. Daniel provides an expert reexamination of American immigration policy and immigrant history. Daniels book builds upon his lifetime of work in American immigration and Asian American history. He notes that Americans have a dualistic attitude. On one part reveling in the nation’s immigrant past, and on the other rejecting much of its immigrant present” (p. 6).He identifies important points in the history of immigration to the United States, beginning with the racist Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and following the twists and turns in official policy up to the present debate on how to control illegal immigration. One of the great merits of Guarding the Golden Door, his comprehensive overview of that policy since 1882, giving appropriate attention to unrelenting efforts to keep out Asians in their near-total exclusion in 1924. Throughout, the author argues that immigration policy is often based on unfounded assumptions and often produces results completely opposite to those intended. The gates were narrowed in the 1920s for Europeans as well, and drawn still tighter during the Depression, with particularly dire consequences for persecuted Jews and others in desperate need of asylum. The golden door all began from Ellis Island. Ellis Island is located at the upper bay just off the New Jersey coast within the shadow of the stature of liberty. From 1892-1954 over twelve million immigrants entered the united states through Ellis Island, a small Island in New York Harbor. Many came because they were...

Essay about California Golden Rush
The gold rush began to Sutter Mill, sawmill of the Swiss Sutter, which became afterward, the father of this expansion and economic miracle that knew California.
This one wanted at first kept this discovery for him by fear but the new was fast known of all. At the end of 1848, the president James Knox Polk confirmed the golden presence in this region. It is from there that waves of thousand immigrants began to arrive in California, it is the beginning of the arrival of forty-niners.
In spite of the difficulty of the road, dozens thousand persons set off to come to California to make fortune. This phenomenon was so important that these immigrants were later called forty-niners, because of the importance of immigrants' stream which arrived in one year.
Although Sutter is the father of this discovery, he was ruined by this gold rush, indeed, his workers left, his rights of property were disputed, its ravaged harvests, his stolen cattle and its lands were squatted by the newcomers.
CHANGE OF THE CITY
The gold rush provoked a real demographic explosion, it transformed San-Francisco completely, indeed, in some years, SF passed of status of fishermen's town in one of the biggest and the most influential cities of the USA. The population of the city was multiplied by about 25 in 2 years, infrastructures had been developed.
We can say that the power of current California...
In 1965 one of the most famous bands, "the Doors" was created at the beach by Venice beach. "The Doors" became one of the premier acts of the late 1960s.
The members were Jim Morrison, who was singing, on the guitar Robbie Krieger, the drummer John Dencemore and Manzarek playing the organ.
At first they arose on birthday or weddings. Then came the day where they signed an contract with Columbia, which was dessolved after a short time.
The Doors played for little money in pub called "London Fog", where they devoloped their unmistakable music style.
In the first time Jim Morrison sang with the back to the public, because of his shyness. Therefore it is hardly to imagine if you think of one of his later performaces.
Afterwards they performed in "Whiskey-A-Go-Go", in which they played the legendary song "The end".
But after some time the members of "The Doors" had to go, because of too much alcohol und wild drug parties.
Finally Elektre records took the band under contract and this was the beginning
of a long successful
In 1967 they published their debut album "Like my fire", which became a mojor hit.
Many of the songs made by The Doors were done in a communal way, reflected Manzarek, with Morrison usually contributing the lyrics and some melody, while the others hammered out the beat and flow of the song.
Important for the popularity of the band was the...
...IT is often said that the American economy needs low-skilled foreign workers to do the jobs that American workers will not do. These foreign workers might be new immigrants, illegal aliens or, in the current debate, temporary or guest workers. But if low-skilled foreign workers were not here, would lettuce not be picked, groceries not bagged, hotel sheets not changed, and lawns not mowed? Would restaurants use disposable plates and utensils?
On the face of it, this assertion seems implausible. Immigrants and low-skilled foreign workers in general are highly concentrated in a few states. The "big six" are California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and Texas. Even within those states, immigrants and low-skilled foreign workers are concentrated in a few metropolitan areas — while there are many in New York City and Chicago, relatively few are in upstate New York or downstate Illinois.
Yet even in areas with few immigrants, grass is cut, groceries are bagged and hotel sheets are changed. Indeed, a large majority of low-skilled workers are native to the United States. A look at the 2000 census is instructive: among males age 25 to 64 years employed that year, of those with less than a high school diploma, 64 percent were born in the United States and 36 percent were foreign born.
Other Americans nominally graduated from high school but did not learn a trade or acquire the literacy, numeracy or decision-making skills needed for higher earnings. Still others...

In his poem, ‘The Door’, Miroslav Holub commends us to initiate change by symbolically opening the door.
Recognising the importance of change Holub repeats his command several times in the poem, ‘Go and open the door’.
To inspire us to accept change he lists possibilities you can find on the other side of the door.
Magic city is purely imagination. Holub is persisting us to be in a positive mental state once we initiate change.
In his poem, ‘The Door’, Miroslav Holub encourages you to seek and welcome any kind of change in your life.
By initiating change, you encounter different obstacles and even if it is just small Holub believes it will still enhance your life.
Even if it is barely anything such as ‘hollow wind’, the intention of making a change will make a difference.
No matter what, Miroslav Holub motivates us to take the chance.
There will possibly be a
‘The Door’ gives you assurance that beyond the obstacle you face there will be better outcomes as long as you allow yourself to progress and think positively.
‘If there is a fog,
It will clear up.’
Once the fog clears up Miroslav Holub inspires us by listing possibilities that may be waiting for on the other side of the door.

Or a magic city’

Transcendentalism is a belief that "the most fundamental truths about life and death can be reached only by going beyond the world of the senses." The three main characteristics of Transcendentalism are: love of nature, a yearning and understanding to better yourself, and to appreciate the simple things that life has to offer. Also Transcendentalists believe in intellectual independence and nonconformity.
A true transcendentalist does not believe in any personal God, but believed that God was in all living things. The writers Emerson and Thoreau were very well known transcendentalists, and made their beliefs renowned in their works "Nature," "Self-Reliance," and "Walden." Transcendentalism can be broken down into three important characteristics. It can be described as a love for nature, a yearning and understanding for personal growth, and a value for contentment and simplicity.
The song "Say" (by John Mayer) has a lyric that says "Say what you need to say." It tells us as humans to think for ourselves and and not to follow the crowd, to be intellectually independent and not to worry about what the world thinks about us. Another lyric in the song is "Even if your hands are shakin', and your faith is broken, even as the eyes are closin', do it with a heart wide open." This means if you truly believe that what you think is right, do it with all your heart and don't hold back.
John Mayer, Henry David Thoreau, and Walt Whitman all seem to have...

...Immigration: Should America close its GoldenDoors?
America has, is, and will always be a nation of immigrants: the great melting pot. In the years that have passed since Emma Lazarus’ poem was inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, “the goldendoor” has seen times when it was open wide and times when it was closed shut to almost all immigrants; what really is an American anyway? An American is someone who loves their country and the people in it, and believes in bettering their own lives as well as the lives of those around them. Does it really matter that these individuals may be of German or Chinese descent? Their ethnic background does not have anything to do with their being American. To say that the majority of people in the United States have some sort of tie with an ethnic background from a different country would be a safe assumption. This is what makes our American Culture unique. Immigrants bring to our country strong family structures and strong morals. Foreigners also help our economy prosper. If this great country was forged and built by immigrants passing through “the goldendoor,” then how can this same country turn away new immigrants?
Immigrants are what help make America what it is today by being a multicultural society standing united.
A lack of jobs is a major concern for most Americans. Will there be enough jobs for everyone? Can our economy support its own...
