They keep coming in.
Some Chinese stayed here in America after the railroad recruits, while some left. The Chinese started going into the cites and getting jobs.
The Chinese were beaten, shot, lynched and called names. They were being discriminated by whites because of the thought that they were criminals and prostitutes.
