Ngai, Mae M.

Examines three aspects of the Immigration Act of 1924: (1) the invention of "national origins" and the process by which immigration quotas were determined as policy; (2) the evolution of "ineligibility to citizenship" that applied to all Asians; and (3) immigration law and the racial formation of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans.
