Immigration of various populations into the United States and other parts of the globe occurs as one of the topics that has and continues to be explored by various scholars. Worth noting is the fact that after the World War II, there are various factors that offered a comprehensive platform that enhanced entry of immigrants into the United States. One of the most comprehensive factors that enhanced entry into the United States is the policies that were set after that Second World War. The 1965 Immigration Act of the United States occurs as one of the most comprehensive policies enacted after the World War II, which made it easy for immigrants to enter into the United States. Speaking of the 1965 Immigration Act, this connotes to a policy document that allowed populations displaced by the Second World War to enter into the United States and attain American citizenship (Minetor 64). .
The above connoted law led to an influx of various immigrants in the United States including Asians, Africans, as well as the Europeans. Despite the fact that the above connoted act was in favour of immigrants displaced by the World War II, there is a need to comprehend with the fact that the Act set a platform for the entry of other populations into the United States, even those who were not displaced by the war. Notably, the entry of Italy into the Second World War was characterized by a wider array of complexities aligned with diplomacy, ideology, and politics (Mass 38). While it is true that the above connoted act played an important role in enhancing immigration into the United States, it is of the essence that immigration of Italians into the United States took place way before the establishment of this act. In fact, immigration of Italians into the United States can be traced back to the 1880s.
A close analysis of American immigrants shows that most of them came to the United States to evade political atrocities in their countries.
