1865: Central Pacific Railroad recruits Chinese workers (about 15,000) to build the railroad.
We're not being paid enough for this.
As more Chinese immigrants came over, they began to be part of all of the jobs, stirring conflict with the US as they fear that they are taking over.
Why do they keep on taking all the jobs? This is not right!
Over time, the US began to harass and taunt the Chinese because of how much they were scared and didn't want them taking over the economy.
Hey rat-eater! Leave! You're not welcome!
Kill them all!!!!
The US even went to the point where they lynched and hung all of the Chinese to get rid of all of them.
Thank God the Chinese are not here anymore!
In 1880, the 106,000 Chinese were not allowed to have interracial marriage to also limit their race in the US. In 1882, the Chinese immigration drops from 40,000 to 23 people. The towns were all filled mostly white, as they got rid of almost all of the Chinese.
Finally, in 1943 Lyndon Johnson passed the Immigration Act of 1965 which ended the Chinese Exclusion Act established in 1885.
I therefore declare that we reunite all immigrant families and use their skillful labor!
