During the last two centuries factors directing migration were purely economic or combined by different political reasons such as prosecution or political pressure based on religion or any other. The immigration policy in the United States always reacted to the changing situation earlier or later but restrictions were discriminative in any times and influenced emigration from those territories were restricted generally. The most egalitarian juridical viewpoint and regulation appeared only by Immigration Act of 1990 creating a new era in both migration policy and in the relation between the US and the rest of the world. Such racist aspects as the disclosure of Eastern Europeans changed to a more liberal consideration of popular diversity which can led to emerge the US society both economically and demographically to an unexpected level in the future. And despite since the Emergency Quota Act of 1921 broadly disclosed Eastern European from immigration and despite patterns in emigration from Easter Europe changed generally in the last couple of years34 America as a target country remained in their minds when thinking about emigration.
