On the 3rd of March 1875 the Page Act was imposed by the Senate and the House Representations of the United States, this act was approved in the congress. The Page Act of 1875 stated that any immigrants from Japan, China and any other Asian country could immigrate liberally and voluntarily. The Page Act of 1875 had five sections. The second section of this act stated that any U.S citizen who would try to bring in any Japanese, Chinese or Asian into the United States without the government’s approval would be punished and has to pay a fine and time in prison. Under the third section of this act it was said that bringing women in the United States with the intention of prostitution was highly prohibited, if anyone was caught doing so he will be again punished with a heavy fine and time in prison, also any contract that was made before would now be invalid. The fourth section stated that if any agreement was made to supply these immigrants as “coolies” would be punished. The fifth section stated that any foreign person who was accused and proved of committing a crime would not be allowed to enter the United States. If the United States government suspected any illegal activities or immigrants all ships would be examined. (McKeown 1999: 73:110) The problems faced by this act was regarding that the Americans believed all Chinese women coming to their country are prostitutes, however this wasn’t true. Most of the women were wives of the Chinese workers. This act not only reduced Chinese prostitutes it lead to almost all. .
