Abstract
The article describes development of discussions on the issue of the restriction of immigration to the USA in the 1920s. Through the examination of the debates in the Senate and House of Representatives author concludes that neither economic reasons, nor racist bias led to the passage of immigration acts of 1921 and 1924. The main reason for their acceptance laid in the strong will to preserve the ideal status quo in the American society, and not let it plunge into the turbulence of European social and cultural crisis.
