A- About 1.5 million Swedes and Norwegians immigrated to the U.S. during the 1910s. The opportunities in America, the poverty in the homeland, and the religious persecution in the united Sweden-Norway were a few of the pull factors influencing the Swedes and Norwegians to immigrate to the U.S. A vast Jewish population immigrated to the U.S. during these times as well. The rise of Nazi Germany was a pull factor because the Jewish population wished to leave due to religious persecution and the eventual Holocaust. Following the Holocaust, The U.S. became home for the largest Jewish diaspora population in the world. B- Immigration patterns of the early twentieth century were clearly dominated by the Great Depression. In the final year before the Great Depression, 1929, 279,678 immigrants were recorded. In 1933 only 23,068 immigrants were recorded. During the Great Depression, more people emigrated from the U.S. than immigrated to it. This change in economy did not promote immigration to the U.S. in the earlier parts of the twentieth century. C- The reason for the increased legal immigration to the U.S. by forty percent is the Immigration Act of 1990. This allowed many more immigrants from Mexico to come to the U.S. The Latin American debt crisis of the late twentieth century led to high rates of unemployment causing Mexicans to immigrate to the U.S. for better economic opportunities. Russian Jews left their homelands in 1989 also. The fall of communism in the Soviet Union was the main reason for thousands of eastern Europeans’ migration to the U.S. D- In 1998, the U.S. gross domestic product exceeded $8.5 trillion even though they contained less than five percent of the world’s population, it accounted for 25 percent of the world’s economy. Unemployment had dropped to its lowest levels in over 30 years. The U.S. was about to enter the 21st century that was bigger than it ever had been before. This success promoted immigration to the U.S.
