As a result, as it has already been mentioned, the immigration policy was extremely limited, numerous quotas and certain demand to immigrants were introduced. At this respect the case of Sacco and Vanzetti seems to be very helpful in understanding of the processes that took place in American society of that time. In 1920 the police arrested two Italian immigrants anarchists who were accused in the robbery and murder of a paymaster and a guard at a shoe factory. However, the public opinion was divided. On the one hand, people believed in the guild of Sacco and Vanzetti and supported their sentence to death. On the other hand, basically radicals stood on the ground that the trial was just a kind of political repression for anarchist views of Sacco and Vanzetti. Radicals and Socialists organized a number of protest meetings that were held throughout the US. Nonetheless, the accused were executed in 1927 despite the existing doubts about their guilt. It could be treated as a precedent that, under certain circumstances, opened the way to political repressions.
