This chapter discusses the new laws that restricted the entry and employment of black “aliens” in the United States, Latin America, and British Caribbean. The U.S. Johnson–Reed Act of 1924, in particular, confronted British Caribbeans with an unprecedented and portentous break. This nominally race-neutral rule functioned as a nearly total ban on immigrant visas for British Caribbeans, causing a drop from over 12,000 arrivals in the first six months of 1924 to under 800 in 1925.
