ABSTRACT
The article discusses how the U.S. immigration rules changed over a period of time responding to the political expediency. Tightening of these norms began in the 1880s with enactment of the Chinese Exclusion Act. Later it led to tightened norms for Japanese and then to whole of Asia in 1917. Further the article details that the 1924 quota pattern was racist as it gave large quotas to Western and Northern Europe. The tightened norms led to non fulfillment of quota norms. The urgent need to change and simplify the immigration rules is suggested.
