Asian-AmericansAsians have been coming to America for thousands of years. The earliest immigrants were the nomads that crossed the Bering Straits and settled from the Arctic region to the tip of South America. During the 19th century they helped build the Trans-Continental Railroad. Discrimination and incarceration during World War II is part of their history but now they are a growing part of culture.
