Conclusion Abstract Asians consider the U.S as the dream country where they can make some quick bucks for becoming rich overnight. However, a look into the available data shows that the life there is not so good for everyone who migrates. People face issues ranging from racial discrimination, language issues, cultural issues, isolation, and various other problems which make life miserable. One gets a bright future in the U.S only when one reaches there in a legal way, and only when one manages to get a well paid job. Some important factors to lead a successful life in the U.S are good English skills, good education qualification, and enough knowledge about the various services available to immigrants and the legal rights of immigrants in employment and education. These factors can make life easy and comfortable in America. I. Introduction The Chinese immigration to the U.S is broadly categorized into three waves. The first one took place in 19th century when a large number of Chinese came to work as laborers in various fields like mining, rail projects, fisheries and agriculture. Though employers were exhilarated to have this cheap labor, the common white people rallied against this “cheap labor”. The Chinese workers faced discrimination from all areas ranging from media, church, and politicians. As a result of this stringent opposition, the Chinese Exclusion Act took birth in 1882. By the year 1924, the Chinese were barred from entering the U.S territory and those who were in the U.S were denied citizenship1. As Suryadinata points out, the period after 1940s World War II witnessed considerable change in the attitude as U.S and China were allies. After the war, the Magnuson Act came into force which put an end to discrimination against Chinese (126). As a result of this change, the second major wave occurred between 1949 and 1980s. The third wave started after 1980. In this wave, there were students, professionals, and illegal aliens. 2. The present-day presence of the Chinese in the U.S and their socio-economic status According to statistics noted by McCabe, between 1850 and 2010, the percentage of Chinese immigrants in the U.S population rose from 0.02% to 1.23%. That means the total number of Chinese born people residing in the U.S is about 1.8 million. Thus, the Chinese make nearly 4.5 % of the total foreign born in the U.S, thus making the second largest immigrant group after Mexicans (McCabe, “Chinese Immigrants in the United States”). For more details see Figure 1. The data for foreign born population by country of origin-2010 is given below Figure 1 Source: United States Census Bureau. “The Foreign-Born Population in the United States”. n.d. 9. Web. 18 Nov 2013. Another important point includes is their higher concentration in states like California and New York. More than half of the total Chinese immigrants reside in these two states. According to the same data, a nagging trend available is that out of every five Chinese immigrants, three are with limited English proficiency, and this lack of English proficienc

This research is the best example of comparison of the United States investor visa and the Canadian investor visa. It help to understand why ethnic entrepreneurship emerged among the Chinese in Canada and the US and also the various aspects of transnationalism taking shape over a period of time with the blend of diaspora.
Chinese immigration began in America pre-1850, but for the purposes of this paper, discussion will be confined to the limitations of 1880 and later. Within this paper I will outline the development of the Chinese population within New York. I will also discuss the racial tension between the white majority and the Chinese minority that led to the creation of the Chinese Exclusion Act, prohibiting citizenship from the Chinese people based on race alone.
Due to their hardworking nature and high proficiency in every venture, they undertake the impression as being more successful than other minority groups in the land of guaranteed openings (Amundson 130). However, the reference “model minority” diverges to their actual encounters as they step into the American shores, while trying to fit and adapt to the new settings as well as thriving in them.
This study was aimed at establishing how Chinese international students deal with acculturative stress in their first year of study in Canada. The study involved conducting face to face interviews with 20 first year students drawn from two colleges in Canada; the University of Toronto and the Sheridan College.
The study shows that lawlessness plays a significant role in justifying the incentive to free-ride on alliance partners, and that the incentive to invest political wealth in an alliance ascends endogenously. Additionally, this study looks into political, economics in defense problems.
According to Teitelbaum and Robert, the reference “model minority” relates to how they thrived in the midst of challenging experiences once they step into the American shores, which is also evident today as they try to fit and adapt to the new settings. However, the issue of language barrier is still evident among numerous emergent immigrants especially among students.
China Men is a sequel to the woman warrior where in the latter 'women were better unborn and geese were better to raise'. The chapter 'on discovery' tells the story of the myth or tale of a woman warrior and slavery of men (a state of fiction where a woman tries to balance the scale of reality to the side of women treated as 'nothing' in the culture of the immigrants.)
With the global economic recession affecting the industry at every level - service volume, sales volume, revenue volume and profit margin - dining out habit of the Americans has been taking a roller-coaster ride, sharp rises and sharp falls.
The country is looked at as a place for many to begin a new life. The country offers people the opportunity to make their own choices and have their own freedom. However, many native Americans look down on immigration because they see migrants just coming to the United
