Northern/Western Europeans but also people from Africa and Latin America


The National Origins Act of 1924 mostly banned Immigrants from Eastern and Southern Europeans as well as Asians by placing a quota. The Act did however have a liking to the northern and western parts of Europe so immigrants from there were allowed to emigrate. This Act also didn't restrict immigration from Africa and Latin American countries.
