Only 150,000 immigrants per year were allowed in to the U.S.A. There were to be no asians at all. Northern and western Europeans were to be allocated 85% of all places. The intention of the nationality based quotas was to restrict the number of people from southern and eastern Europe, Japan and china. By 1930, Immigration from these areas had virtually stopped.
