Thematic Critique On The Chinese American Responses To The Exclusionary Immigration Practices Against Chinese Coming To The U.S

In their essays, Hsu Madeline and Lai Mark described the exclusion of Chinese American by codifying the Chinese as the racial ‘other’ in America, inassimilable, unwanted, and ineligible to citizenship. The exclusion justified the marginalisation and segregation of Chinese from the mainstream of American economic and social life. The consequences of the exclusion as descried in the two essays included transoceanic separation of families as well as the creation of a large monosocial culture in America. As described by Lai Mark, the immigration officers in the United States treated the Chinese claims of citizenship status with suspicion despite that the United States had repealed the Exclusion Act (26). The author further indicated that there is increased traffic of Chinese from China to Hong Kong and then to the United States but due to the exclusion law there was creation of a large population of Chinese illegal immigrants in the United States with at least 25% of Chinese American being illegal in 1950. This illegal population comprised paper sons who were thousands of Chinese who entered the US during the first half of 20th century by pretending to be sons of Chinese Americans living in the United States.
