Compare immigration before and after 1890?

Between 1600 and 1890 about 20 million immigrants arrived from Western Europe.

By 1890 the United States was overflowing with immigrants as about 10 million immigrants arrived every five years from Southern and Eastern Europe including Greeks, Czechs, Hungarians, Italians, Poles, Jews, and Russians. After 1890 there was no more free land in the West. Illiterate immigrants were willing to work cheap, accused of stealing jobs, and easy prey for corrupt politicians.
