Annotation: Article on Chinese exclusion in the American Missionary.
Document: Chinese Exclusion 1893
America’s open door to people of all nations has become the passage-way for many undesirable additions to our population. Undoubtedly some restrictions must be placed on this influx. But it should be on the score of character and fitness, rather than of race; and especially it should not be made in violation of justice, humanity and the sanctity of treaty obligations. The Chinese Exclusion Bill has all these obnoxious features. Our readers will find on other pages of the magazine a very full and interesting sketch of the odious features of this legislation.
