The type of immigration that I will be focusing on is the immigration of Vietnamese people into the United States. I will be focusing on the two main waves of Vietnamese immigration, during and post war. The question that the research will aim to answer: where did most Vietnamese immigrants settle in the United States, and what impact did they have on the local communities?
The sources I gathered are a composition of primary and secondary sources. The first, Vietnamese Immigrants in the United State
, is a background of the start of Vietnamese immigration, as well a map of the population. This shows where the Vietnamese communities are set up, and the contact they have with each other. The second, Vietnamese Americans, talks about the numbers of immigrants and the reasons they left Vietnam. It is written by Vietnamese immigrants. The source also talks about the effect that Vietnamese communities had on the US economy and local culture. The last source, The History of Vietnamese Immigration, talks about the waves of Vietnamese immigration, where, and how they arrived in the USA.
