(May 2009) Census Population Ancestry Map Immigration to the United States has been a major source of population growth and cultural change throughout much of the history of the United States . The economic, social, and political aspects of immigration have caused controversy regarding ethnicity, economic benefits, jobs for non-immigrants, settlement patterns, impact on upward social mobility, crime, and voting behavior. As of 2006, the United States accepts more legal immigrants as permanent residents than all other countries in the world combined. Since the liberalization of immigration policy in 1965, the number of first- generation immigrants living in the United States has quadrupled, from 9.6 million in 1970 to about 38 million in 2007. 1,046,539 persons were

The First Americans
The Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence, announcing the separation of the colonies from Great Britain, and establishing themselves at the United States, is considered the most important of all American documents, and a national symbol of liberty. Thomas Jefferson drafted the document between June 11 - June 28, 1776. His unparalleled expression of "self-evident truths" conveyed the convictions of the American people for individual liberty and enumerated their grievances against the King to justify their breaking from the mother country. The Declaration of Independence asserts the fundamental American ideal of government, but it was based upon the theory of "natural rights" previously proclaimed by writers : John Locke, Emerich Vattel and Jean Jacques Rousseau. The Declaration was adopted on July 4, 1776.

        Immigration and U.S. History
        About 16 million immigrants entered the United States through Ellis Island in New York from 1892 to 1924. (© AP Images) By Hasia Diner Tens of millions of immigrants over four centuries have made the United States what it is today. They came to make new lives and livelihoods in the New World; their hard work benefited themselves and their new home country. Hasia Diner is professor of history at New York University in New York City. Millions of women and men from around the world have decided to immigrate to the United States. That fact constitutes one of the central elements in the country’s overall development, involving a process fundamental to its pre-national origins, its emergence as a new and independent nation, and its subsequent rise from being an Atlantic outpost to a world power, particularly in terms of its economic growth. Immigration has made the United States of America. Like many other settler societies, the United States, before it achieved independence and afterward, relied on the flow of newcomers from abroad to people its relatively open and unsettled lands. It shared this historical reality with Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Argentina, among other nations.

    United states constitution
    A Look Inside the Bill of Rights
    When the United States Constitution was formed ten amendments were added at the start. These are collectively the Bill of Rights. Every since the Bill of Rights was drafted in the late eighteenth century they have stood the test of time in order to give all Americans the general freedoms that they have to enjoy. One of the most important things about the Bill of Rights is that they are all laws. In fact, one of the best things about these laws is that the United States government will be significantly limited in terms of how much power it will have over all citizens in the country. This makes the United States government especially different from other governments around the world in that people will have more freedoms that what those in other countries would have. Also, the Bill of Rights are made with the intention of helping to give all Americans protected rights without the government ever taking away any of the rights and giving them to the government itself. This means that the government will never get too powerful to the point where the Bill of Rights are going to be infringed upon. The government is now considered to be a servant when compared to the people. Here’s a look at what the Bill of Rights specifically offers: 1. The basic freedoms. These are the freedoms of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition. This means that people are not going to be forced into protesting the government or to follow a specific religion. People can also assemble without being harassed by the government, and people can also petition for grievances that the government caused.

    American Immigration Past and Present: A Simulation Activity Historical Overview Throughout its history, America has served as the destination point for a steady flow of immigrants. During the colonial era most migrants came from northern European countries. Their numbers declined with the onset of the Revolutionary War during the 1770s, but immigration later picked up strongly again during the 1840s and 1850s. New arrivals came from several European countries during this period, but most came from Ireland and Germany, where devastating crop failures forced many residents to leave their homelands. Many settled in New York City, where the population increased from 200,000 residents in 1830 to 515,000 in 1850. By 1860, New York was home to over one million residents. More than half of the city's population at that time were immigrants and their American-born children. After the Civil War, America's growing industrial economy required the addition of many more workers, and this need was filled once again by immigrants arriving from Europe. Approximately 25 million arrived between 1866 and 1915. While earlier immigrants had come mainly from northern European countries such as England, Germany, and the Scandinavian countries, by the 1880s most new immigrants were arriving from southern and eastern European countries such as Italy, Poland and Russia. Like their Irish predecessors, most of these new arrivals were poor and uneducated. Many were peasants from rural regions who were being pushed out by Europe's industrial revolution.
