Immigrants who came to America did so either because of the poor economic situation in their countries or because of intolerance, lack of freedom of speech and expression of religious convictions. Thus, in search of better economic conditions and possibilities, as well as for religious freedom, they sought their place in America. In addition to these, the reasons were also political persecutions, or to avoid war.

1. Religious Freedom
From around 1680, large numbers of settlers began arriving to the middle colonies. Many were members of Protestant sects that were looking for freedom of religion and cheap land.

Angel Island Immigration Station was located in the San Francisco Bay, and it operated from 1910-1940. Immigrants entering the United States here were detained and interrogated. Most immigrants were from China, Japan, India, the Phillipines and Mexico. The length of time they were detained for could often last for months.

America: The Land of Dreams, was the destination of around twelve million immigrants wishing to escape poverty and poor standards of living. The economic prosperity of the United States offered a golden opportunity to a better lifestyle and more economic opportunities. Initially, European Protestants comprising of Germans, British and the Irish entered the United States and settled primarily around the Midwest. Post-1845 saw the arrival of Catholics escaping the ravages of the Great Famine of Europe.
Following industrialization and the development of steam engines, transportation facilities to the United States became easily accessible to immigrants. Southern Europe and its ports were well connected by railroad, which gave immigrants easy access to ports. Transoceanic journeys were faster. The introduction of technology and modern farming techniques contributed to the growth of surplus in Europe, and the increase of the working population. However, the lack of sufficient economic opportunities to accommodate the rising working-class population led them to immigrate to the United States. The economy of United States received a huge boost due to ready availability of surplus labor, which contributed to making the United States an economic giant. The immigrants usually settled around urban areas, causing a rise in urban population, and also receiving certain amount of antagonism from the local population. The inclusion of immigrant labor to the American economy contributed to the expansion of its industries such as mining, steel, coal, textiles, garment production and heavy industries. The urban elite and native-born Americans displayed a sentiment of antipathy towards foreigners, who supplied cheap labor, and there was a sudden competition and scramble for economic opportunities. In 1893, the wealthy American elites deputized Congress to restrict immigration to preserve the ethnicity and social integrity of native Americans.
