The immigrant surge of the lateth and earlyth centuries was distinctive in its size, its demographics, and its impact upon American culture and society. Italians, Poles, Jews, and Slavs—ethnic groups rarely encountered en masse earlier in American history—arrived in large numbers.

They also departed in large numbers. These immigrants, mostly male and mostly young, hoped to earn enough money during a temporary stay in America to be able to afford an increased standard of living upon returning to their homeland.

The two laws were targeted squarely at the New Immigrants: The effect was startling. Prior to the quota, immigrants were arriving at a rate of more than , per year, with just under , of those coming from Southern and Eastern Europe and only , coming from Northern and Western Europe.
