Many people have not really thought of Middle Eastern Americans as a significant racial group in the United States until after the attacks on September 11, 2001. What people do not realize is that this group of people has been in the United States for a very long time and it is usually not until something big happens that we tend to notice them within our ranks as Americans. During this paper, I will give a very brief history of the Middle Easterners immigration to the United States. There will also be talk of what their experiences have been like in the country, as well as the political, social, and cultural issues and concerns that have proven evident throughout American history.

As this group of people became familiar with living in the United States, many cultural and social elements were noticed to be sizably different. Most noticeable are the gender roles.

Some things even as precious as marriage, in American eyes, is viewed as being very different in the Middle Eastern culture. Usually, when the women in the family are married, it is usually because of an arranged marriage and they are typically younger in age, although some adaption has been done to follow state and federal laws. Social issues often arise because of the way women are treated in traditional Middle Eastern way. Usually disrespect of women is common for the typical male. This is a big issue because women are incorporated into our daily lives. As everything else, politics can cause issues as well. As with most political changes, just adapting to the rules and laws of the land is a big change. What makes it even harder is when this group just emigrates from a country with a dictatorship to one that is a democracy. Most are not used to the freedoms that are seen as an everyday right to most Americans.
Even though there has not really been legislation made towards the Middle Eastern Americans, there have been times that immigration has been affected by the passing of laws that has limited that amount of Middle Eastern people in to the country. During the period of 1917-1924, there were three different laws that were...
