<p>Following decades of discriminatory immigration policy, which began with the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, the United States set into law the Emergency Quota Act of 1921, which set a quota on the number of immigrants from Germany, Italy, Russia, and Eastern European countries. In this book, published the same year, author Thomas Burgess implored Episcopalians to see immigrants as their neighbors in need of ministering and basic kindness. He uses many anecdotes from women's lives to illustrate commonalities between his audience and immigrant populations and to garner sympathy.</p>
