The Immigration Act:
The Immigration Act of 1924 limited the number of immigrants allowed entry into the United States through a national origins quota. The quota provided visas to two percent of the total number of people of each nationality in the United States as of the 1890 national census. It completely excluded immigrants from Asia. This also exclude immigrants from the so called "Asiatic Barred Zone" which didn't include Japan and the Philippines because the Philippines were a US colony and Japan already limited the amount of immigrants coming into the US. Although China was a part of this with the Chinese Intrusion Act.
