This graph shows that the number of immigrants coming to America during the Progressive Era increases but surly decreases. In 1850 the immigration rate was at its all time lowest for this time period. The light blue line indicates that the immigration rate wasn’t increasing dramatically until the 1900s. As soon as the 1900s come the rates start to go up dramatically then come to a slight Plato. The dark blue line shows the amount of people in America at the time, both immigrants and Americans. Even though the immigration rates were increasing the number of people in America wasn’t steady. This may have been due to the birth and death rates going on in this point of time.
