In the mid-19th century, Asian-Americans flocked to America and provided cheap immigrant labour. Their numbers grew so high and fast that several restrictive immigration laws were enacted, and were not eased until the mid-20th century. Since that time, Asian-Americans have consistently been cited as one of the fastest growing segments of the population and seem on the cusp of increased political activity and influence. Despite the rise in Asian-American citizens since the 1960s, however, there has not been a corresponding growth of political participation. Voter turnout is low, and the number of Asian-American representatives has lagged. However, Asian-Americans have often been notable political donors and campaign financiers, indicating a behind-the-scenes political influence. As the Asian population increases in the nation, so do the chances of their wielding wider impact on election results and the issues of importance nationally. In order to understand the development of the Asian-American political block, this book discusses the history of Asian immigration and political participation. Using reports based on census data, the patterns of Asian-American behaviour are assessed. No segment of American society can be ignored, and this book is necessary for coming to understand the implications of and history behind the political influence of a significant slice of the American pie.
