Immigration Fight of 1913: Cartoons Magazine Centennial

A week-and-a-half ago, after much debate, the U.S. Senate passed an Immigration Reform Bill which is pleasing to no one. This week, the House of Representatives — controlled by Republicans not, many of whom are opposed to the legislation, partially because it would bring in as voting citizens, mostly individuals who likely will not vote for them…

The timing thus seems right, to look a century back to 1913, when West Coast states (most notably California) and their elected officials, were engaged in openly race-based legislation to attempt to bar Japanese from immigrating to the U.S. …

Robert Minor, Jr., above, depicts the hypocrisy of Uncle Sam’s Immigration Wall — from the June 1913 edition of Cartoons Magazine.

Beneath, “None So Blind”, from the July 1913 issue, by Oscar Cesare.

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.

These two sets of pages are from the June 1913 article , “California and the Japanese”. Art above by John T. McCutcheon and W.A. Rogers; below by Guy Spencer, Cy Hungerford, and W.A. Ireland.

Concluding “California and the Japanese”, above, we have art above by Tige Reynolds, Ole May, and Elmer Donnell.

All of the beneath pages, are the July 1913 Cartoons Magazine article, “The Japanese Situation”, with art in the first below page by Hungerford (again), and J.E. Whiting.

The article “The Japanese Situation” continues, with art by Howe, Hunter, and Jay Norwood “Ding” Darling (above); and Billy Ireland and John Scott Clubb (below).

Finally, in the concluding pages of the July 1913 article, we have art below by Spencer, Biggers, and Paul A. Plaschke.
