Scientific Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: USA, grade: A, Hamline University, course: Reform Movements in America, language: English, abstract: This paper analyzes the root of anti-immigration sentiments that existed in the Progressive Era, and the struggle that took place over the immigration question between immigration proponents and anti immigration reformists. The paper keens in on the US Immigration Commission's role in the debate. This paper argues that the Immigration Commission's anti-immigrant bias in it's reports compelled congress to pass the most sweeping immigration restrictionist policies in the history of the United States. The passage of these laws symbolized the victory of anti-immigration reformists over immigration proponets of the Progressive Era.I graduated From Hamline University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree double major in Political Science and History. While at Hamline, I participated in a number of organizations and conferences including but not limited to: PRIDE BSA, Hamline University's Residential Housing Association (RHA), the Hamline ENCORE Team, Commitment to Community, and Hamline's Diversity Integration Standing Committee. I was also one of the original founders of 'The Movement, a student lead organization that had the mission of, 'encouraging the uplifting and upholding of social, racial, gender, and sexual equalities.' In 2014 I became the first student from Hamline to win the Gilder Lerhman History Scholar Award from the Gilder Lerhman History Institute. While juggling academics with extracurricular activities, I also gained real work experience as a community organizer for the non-profit All Parks Alliance for Change, Sr. Fellow in the McVay Youth Partnership after school program for targeted youth, and Community Builder for Project for Pride in Living (PPL). I currently work to create opportunities for youth in North Minneapolis to work towards achieving their potential through the YMCA's Nellie Stone Johnson Beacons after school program.
