ABSTRACT
The article looks into the possibility that history of California may offer insight into the immigration reform issue. The history started when the first Chinese immigrants landed in San Francisco about 1880. Chinese laborers flooded the San Francisco labor market after the building of the Central Pacific railroad. Lawmakers are called on to put some reason and compromise in immigration reform debate rather than repeating a sad part of the history.
