Brown Bag, Online Event The Confederation Period Origins of American Migration Policy 22 October 2020.Thursday, 12:00PM - 1:00PM This is an online program Cody Nager, CUNY

As migrants arrived in the United States after the 1783 Treaty of Paris, the new nation balanced the economic potential of migration against domestic and international turmoil. Debates over regulation centered around potential disloyalty in the trans-Appalachian west, the environment of interstate competition, and foreign commercial interference. From these debates developed the first national migration policy codified when Congress passed the Naturalization Act of 1790.
