The Quota Acts were racist in that, after 1921, only 3 per cent of the total population of any overseas group already in the USA in 1910 could come in, reducing to 2 per cent in 1924. The first Act was specifically aimed at restricting entry by southern and eastern European immigrants, and the 1924 Act prohibited immigration from Asia.
