Chinese Immigration Prejudice

218 Words1 Page
Chinese immigration has increased by a lot lately. Over ten thousand have immigrated to San Francisco this month, and many more are expected. They have been facing prejudice in California due to their different mannerisms. The immigration rate has increased ever since gold has been discovered, which has angered many citizens, as they feel like the immigrants are simply coming and kind of stealing the gold as a resource. Chinese immigrants are hardworking and persistent in their endeavors. Many Chinese immigrants have been working in mines under working conditions similar to slavery. They aren’t paid well either; only about five dollars a month. Americans have been unhappy that there are fewer jobs available due to the influx of Chinese immigrants.
