U.S. foreign policy
International trade was a major factor in these considerations. In addition to being the leader in the development of industries in a country or region on a wide scale, by the turn of the 20th century the United States had become the major agricultural exporter in the world. A strong desire to increase international trade fueled the debate as to whether maintaining that prominence in agricultural exports would be best accomplished through both territorial expansion and an economic push for market expansion.
Chinese people were the main people stuck in angel island and probably had it the worst. The Chinese were kept at angel island the most and had really really tragic tales and poems carved into the walls at the angel island immigration station.
