    For restrictions to immigration, what factors are there other than the Red Scare and WW1?

    Would a rise in Nativism (protecting the interest of native inhabitants againts those of immigrants based on fears that immigrants will distort or spoil existing cultural values) be suitable?

    The Eugenic Movement: Madison Grant and his argument that the immigrants were diluting the 'superior Nordic' gene pool of the US.
    80% of immigrants in 1880-1920 were natives of Southern and Eastern Europe and culturally and ethically different than the 'old immigrants' who had come from the Nordic countries with the main difference being that old immigrants were mainly protestant and new immigrants were mainly catholic.

    OR

    Would the rise of the KKK be more suitable for this question?
    I think rise of the KKK dude

    To what extent wasthe first world war the key factor in the US decision to restrict immigrationin the years 1917-1929?
    For this question i'm thinking of structuring it like:

    Intro - Reference popularity of immigration during WW1 and then resulting 'Red Scare' afterward and then mention KKK, southern attitude to increased northern immigration and maybe religious fundamentalism e.g Scopes Trial
    Paragraph 1: Red Scare
    Paragraph 2: KKK
    Paragraph 3: Southern Attitude and Scopes Trial
    Conclusion ----------------

    Do you guys think that's okay?

    Intro:

    -Look at the question/pick it apart (Example if the question was say "Immigration throughout the 1920's was the primary cause in social tension within the US. How far do you agree?", You would first ask what is meant by social tension and summarise what the causes could potentially be, ie: Immigration, rural/urban divide, anti prohibitionists, African American migration etc..

    First para
    -Agree with the question
    -Put forward reasons as to why Immigration from Europe was so high (Effects of the war, widespread povery in Italy, Ireland, Poland)
    -Give evidence of Immigration creating unrest (Sacco Vannetti case, KKK anti-catholic/Jewish sentiment)
    -Entire neighbourhoods becoming Irish, Italian, Jewish
    -Calvin Coolidge "America must always remain American"
    -Red Scare belief that Europeans will bring Anarchism and Communism with them

    Second para
    -Make a counter point
    -In this case, give the argument that the main cause was in fact the rural/urban divide
    -Explain how farmers were not feeling the benefits of the boom
    -How due to the government no longer subsidising agriculture, and the fact that farmers had an over surplus, costs went down and farmers came into debt
    -Rural communities lacked in access to electricity in many areas
    -Automobile industry caused horse breeders to go bust as nobody used horses for farming or transport anymore
    -Relate back to the question as to how this resulted in social tension (Migration from rural communities to urban communities leaves rural America in trouble)
    -Then compare the two arguments, was the divide a greater cause for unrest than immigration?

    Third para
    -Prohibition
    -How crime was attributed to immigration
    -Examples of Irish, Italian and Jewish gangs capitalizing off the back of prohibition (Capone, Bugs Moran, Meyer Lansky)
    -How anti-immigration sentiment leads to European immigrants struggling to make ends meet, leading to many being recruited into crime
    -700 speakeasies in DC alone throughout 1920
    -Agree with question, saying that Immigration did cause crime to spike, however this was only due to prohibition and poor conditions for European Immigrants.


    Fourth Para
    -Migration and race in the US and the rise of the KKK
    -African-American migration into urban communities such as Harlem and Detroit
    -Creates much unrest amongst the traditional anglo-protestant communities who believe America should remain white, many leave neighbourhoods
    -KKK Membership at the time rising to around 4 million nationwide in 1925 as a direct result of white communities feeling under threat as well as the film "Birth of a nation"
    -Ask whether or not it was actually Immigration itsef that created issues, or was it simply institutionalised racism and a belief in preserving the Anglo-protestant idea of America
    -Relate back to the question, how did this create social tension? (African Americans abused, anti-semitic and catholic stance, stereotyping commonplace)

    Conclusion
    -Was immigration the primary cause for social tension?
    -Yes, because the influx of foreign culture into the US was so rapid
    -Yes because the US was opposed to change
    -No, because the majority of people in the rural south were white, protestant
    -No, because African American Migration was internal
    -Conclude that the argument cannot be wholly attributed to immigration at the time, rather the combination of it along with internal migration and a sense of preserving America amongst its prejudiced white Protestant communities as well as the gap in living standards between urban and rural communities all combined to create issues.

    Hope this is helpful mate.

    Do you think a question such as 'to what extent is 'old vs new' a fair interpretation of the social tensions in U.S. society in the 1920s?' is likely?

    And as well a question on the impacts on society because of WW2?

    Just preparing for the worst haha

    Can you outline some of the social impacts of the New Deal? I'm confident on economic but not social
    I don't think it is likely a social question on the New Deal would come up, opposition to the new deal is a much more likely question.

    In terms of actual social effects

    The AAA payed off farmers to not produce crops in order to raise prices, however it was only the landowners who were payed off. African American farmers therefore did not benefit and effectively lost their income.

    Something else which could be considered social is FDR allowing African Americans into the democrat party. Causing a total shift in politics, southern states traditionally Democrat now would vote Republican as many felt African Americans had no right in politics.

    The new deal created unrest amongst many conservatives, particularlly business owners who were being taxed more in order for FDR to carry out his relief programs

    Also the TVA was highly controversial as it put the federal government in direct competition with businesses.

    On the other end of the scale, Huey Long governor of Louisiana opposed the New Deal as he felt FDR was not radical enough. He wanted any person with a personal fortune of over $3 million to have it confiscated, he had little influence however was seen as a threat as he was effectively promoting socialism.

    The supreme court opposed changes as well, 11 of the 16 alphabet agencies became illegal.


    Like I said, social impacts are unlikely to be a question. Opposition on the other hand is much more likely.

    It's right-wing because almost everyone in there was put in by Republicans

    Absolutely, the aim of the question isn't just to address what is in the question itself but also to provide a counter argument. If that was the question the rural/urban divide wouldn't be a factor, but the pressure from the KKK and prohibition/crime are definitely relatable to that question.

    Good luck for tomorrow mate, you'll do fine just make sure to keep structured and related to the question and it'll be all good.

    I would write more about the Red Scare, how many felt that improverished European immigrants would bring a wave of Communism and Anarchism into the country.
